This is the story of two girls, one is a princess and the other is a daughter of a shepherd; both are spoiled and self-serving. Their lives are changed forever when they encounter the Wise Woman, who undertakes to teach them virtue with an astounding balance of grace and truth. Firm and loving, the Wise Woman is everything a good parent could hope to be, and a refreshing portrayal of the Heavenly Parent in us all.
©1980 George MacDonald (P)2009

One of my all-time favorites

This book has been a favorite since childhood, and continues to be as an adult. It is one of the very few books which I have read multiple times, always benefited from, and never wearied of. It is a book both young and old can enjoy--and learn from. For like C.S. Lewis who read much of George MacDonald, it has a deep meaning under the beautiful tale.

Wonderful MacDonald

George McDonald is magical… As CS Lewis said, he was the master of the fairytale. There's something miraculous about his writing that calms and makes human thoughts move toward creative, delightful, heavenly mysteries in a way other storytellers cannot. Not your average fairytale.... medicine for the soul.
