Slow Starter but Worth the Time Jun 23, 2006
A wonderful tale of a minister's search for Christ and the lives that are affected because of it. It was because of this book that my interest in George Macdonald began!
Three books under one cover, a treasure; don't miss this one Jan 30, 2004
Michael Phillips is a superb editor of George MacDonald's books, in case you haven't discovered that. The first book is about a minister who doesn't know the Lord, but comes to it. He makes aquaintance of some surprising people who are dwarfs and they share their lives with him (and us)in a touching, incredible way; they really are at the heart of the story. Also in this is a wonderful, albiet difficult love of a sister for her brother that could be today, not the late 1800's, when it was written. Another is about a doctor and a beautiful woman. I read every Geroge MacDonald I can find, and this is one of the best.
This is NOT George MacDonald but a very bad abridgement Dec 6, 2003
If you are really interested in reading George MacDonald, this is not the book for you. The text of the orignal book, "Thomas Wingfold Curate" on which this book is suppoedely based, is wildly tampered with, from the very first sentence of the novel. This is not George MacDonald at all. The editor has taken huge liberties with one of literature's great Christian authors. I would suggest that you find the original text of this book rather that reading this. It will be worth the search. It is much better than this abridgement, which doesn't even have the courage to call itself that.
