I was introduced to George MacDonald by my sister-in-law, Nancy. One year for Christmas she gave me a copy of The Fisherman's Lady (Hampshire Books), and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Through the years I have read it several times, and as a matter of fact, after writing about it tonight, I think it is about time for another time through.
George MacDonald was an author in 19th century Scotland. He wrote a great variety of books including novels for adults, fairy tales, theological works, and poetry. C. S. Lewis was greatly influenced by MacDonald, and I have read that Lewis even even referred to him as "his master".
This is a good, hard-to-put-down type of story that is perfect for that cold stormy day outside when you have nothing better to do than spend the afternoon with a good book.
