An unscrupulous baronet is left a widower and couldn't care less what happens to his ugly newborn heir. But when an icy stepmother moves in and the child is stolen away by his loving nurse, what can unfold but a riveting account of the years of mystery, drama, love and lessons for which MacDonald's writings are known. (Sequel to Thomas Wingfold, Curate and "Paul Faber, Surgeon") - Summary by HannahMary (17 hr 8 min)

(5 Sterne)

Truly a work of MacDonald with plenty of his wrong theology and lengthy thought processes, but I very much was delighted by the honorable characters and encouraged by the redemptive story. Will listen again!

Beautiful

(5 Sterne)

Wrong theology? No. A beautiful story with theology of rare purity and clarity of vision.

(3,5 Sterne)

It seems every time I read or listen to a book by this Author, I say in awe and amazement, this, this, is my favorite! And so yet once again as I tearfully and regretfully come to the end of this book, I say again, “This, this is my favorite one of George MacDonalds books.” So many times during my listening I stopped to write down and file away for further meditating on. Subjects like books was an entirely new consideration… that they are living breathing friends.. I was awes & humbled many times and stopped to chat with my Heavenly Father. I thanked Him time after time for blessing our world with such a beautiful storyteller, who had the ability to make me deepen my desire and awareness & rededicate my heart to The Most High, Elohim! Why this is not given 5 stars is due to the narrators. Oh how I wish only one enjoyable experienced narrator would have read the entire book. So I leave this book w a hunger to draw near to God and bless Him and serve with His heart!

Many of the readers were very good and added life to the story

excellent

(5 Sterne)

a relief from everyday dreary stories and common forms

(3 Sterne)

Good story line, takes you up to the edge and just when you're going to step off it drags you back. But it loses you with the long dramatic descriptions.
