Having recently discovered my own Scottish roots, I am ever interested in reading Scots authors. A friend turned me on to the writing of the editor of this book, Michael R. Phillips, who in an acknowledgment mentioned the George MacDonald author. I secured several of his books and this is the first of many I ordered. it was slow getting into the book and the language is somewhat archaic since the original author wrote during the 19th Century. Phillips has modernized the language somewhat but it can be difficult going. Once I got into the jist of the plot, it was much easier and I was eager to read more and look forward to the sequel. This book centers around the life of a fishman young man and consequences of secrets held by the village folk of his community.

The woman's body lay in an upper room of an old house overlooking the sea. Her life had been shrouded in mystery as surely as her body was now wrapped in the pale linen of death...

So begins the stunning romantic narrative of Malcolm, the Scottish fisherman, and the willful, adventurous girl he dared not love.

Edited for the modern reader, with much of the Scottish dialect translated for easier comprehension

Originally published in 1875 as "Malcolm"

Enjoyable and suspenseful, though somewhat difficult to follow at times. I definitely recommend this edition, unless you are up to speed on pretty heavy Scottish dialect (in which some of the characters speak in the original editions). Also, this edition has a helpful character list and map at the front of the book. Likeable and unpredictable character development, and the last chapters are particularly moving.

This book was very exciting and sometimes scary, but the hero protected everyone and it felt like he was protecting the reader. His emotions were genuine and true to his beliefs. I look forward to reading the sequel.
