Scotland's Beloved Storyteller
He grew up in Huntly, Scotland
A writer, theologian, poet, husband and father of eleven.
It's a tedious book - a biography, yet not in the usual sense - and I've had it for several years - at first finding it not worth the effort - as much as I loved the books by G.M. - this was too much detailed reading - too many facts that required a lot of concentration - with not enough enjoyment - entertainment in reading -
but I suppose I've changed - my interests have changed - and now it's become a book I look forward to - I look to those moments when I can "get back to my book".
I don't think anyone could enjoy it if they were not a fan of G.M., wondering what shaped him - and the details of all of that.
Read his books.
The Baronet's Son
The Shepherd's Castle
The Fisherman's Lady
The Marquis' Secret
Those were my first 4 and I think I have read
The Tutor's First Love
There are more which I haven't read, but in reading his books I wanted to know about him.
Thus - the George MacDonald Biography.
Laura Beth has been here this week with Ada and John.
We are returning them to Scott tomorrow, meeting him at the Adairsville exit on I-75.
