It was ok. Not MacDonalds best book and I missed some of the atmosphere from the first book. We follow the family Walton who because of an riding accident moves to the sea in order that Connie will get well. It contains a lot of preaching but he still manages to keep you going with some gems hidden in between. The story continues in the next book so it is nor really a stand alone book.
A good book. I enjoyed it. the beginning Mr. Walton states that he has 7 children goes on to name 5 and then later in the story talks about the little one that they adopted, presumably the 6th.... No where is a 7th mentioned... Did I miss something?
Like all of George MacDonald's book this one has an emphasis on the love of God that will encourage and inspire.
This was my first George MacDonald novel. I truly appreciate the way He wrote about the characters' growth in their relationship with God throughout the story.

This is not MacDonald's best book. It has many loose threads and pointless meanders.

George MacDonald was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister.

Known particularly for his poignant fairy tales and fantasy novels, George MacDonald inspired many authors, such as W. H. Auden, J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and Madeleine L'Engle. It was C.S. Lewis that wrote that he regarded MacDonald as his "master": "Picking up a copy of Phantastes one day at a train-station bookstall, I be

“The full of resurrections... Every night that folds us up in darkness is a death; and those of you that have been out early, and have seen the first of the dawn, will know it - the day rises out of the night like a being that has burst its tomb and escaped into life.” 56 likes
