Back of Book says: Hugh Sutherland acxcepts a teaching position on a small Scottish estate. Gradually drawn into a deep and satisfying friendship with the elderly steward, David Elginbrod, Hugh aslo discovers a deepening appreciation for David's daughter, NMargaret. Eventually, moving back to the city to finish his chooling, Hugh is never quite able to shake off the profound influence of that simple, warm family and their unshakable faith in God. Having found another tutoring position, Hugh falls deeply in love the the beautiful, mysterious young mistress of the housefhold. Entranced by her loveliness and intriqued by the mystical forces surronding her, will Hugh be able to return to those good influences in his life?

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 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.
