At the Back of the North Wind by George MacDonald

At the Back of the North Wind
by George MacDonald

Product Details
  1. Paperback: 336 pages
  1. Publisher: Public Domain

Point: There are a few who live in light of eternity. These few have been given a glance into the tomorrow of life. Some of those who know these individuals mock, others pity, but all recognize that the long-sighted are something special.

Path: George MacDonald leads the reader through a lengthy story of a young boy’s life, demonstrating how eternity is viewed by those who have never seen it and by those who have.

Agreement: This book had some excellent themes, and for the attentive, a great store of character shaping thoughtfulness.

Disagreement: It was very long for the story.

Personal App: Things are not how they always seem - and eternity is that way.

Favorite Quote: "A poet is not a boat, as you call it. A poet is a man who is glad of something, and tries to make other people glad of it too."

Stars: 3.5 out of 5

It would be worth a shortened read and I might recommend it.
