David Elginbrod

by George MacDonald


This work was the first of the famed fantasy novelist’s novels in the style of realism. It tells the story of Hugh Sutherland, a young Scotsman who, while facing personal trials, befriends David Elginbrod and his daughter, Maggie. Readers and critics alike have praised and cherished the novel not only for its artistry, but also for its tender and precise portrayal of human life. Although not as well-known as The Princess and the Goblin or At the Back of the North Wind, David Elginbrod possesses truth and beauty all its own, and does not deserve to be overlooked.
