I Say: First published in 1863, this is an outstanding classic. The author, George MacDonald, was a large influence in the life and writing of C.S. Lewis. This might be described as an old-fashioned novel - but it really has some very up-to-date dilemmas answered in a today kind of way.
A young man accepts a teaching postion on a Scottish estate and is unable to shake off the profound influence of an elderly steward of that estate and his simple, warm family and their unshakable faith in God.
From front cover:
His character was being shaped by circumstances and forces seemingly beyond his control. How could he face the poignant choices before him?
A remarkable story with the special MacDonald touch--retold for today's reader. A captivating story of love and suspense. "His character was being shaped by circumstances and forces seemingly beyond his control. How could he face the poignant choices before him?"
This was a very strange story. The evil character was into some strange practices. The Ghost was exciting and the ending was sad and happy. God always helps those who believe in him.
