About the Author

George MacDonald was a Scottish author and minister best known for his fairy tales and fantasy novels. A theologian, MacDonald was pastor of Trinity Congregational Church in Arundel before moving to London to teach at the University of London. MacDonald s work influenced many fantasy writers including J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and Madeleine L Engle; he is recognized as a mentor to Lewis Carroll and heavily influenced Carroll s decision to submit Alice s Adventures in Wonderland for publication. MacDonald was a prolific writer, and penned such fantasy classics as Phantastes, The Princess and the Goblin, and Lillith. George MacDonald died in 1905.

(This story has also been published under the titles, "The Lost Princess" and "The Wise Woman.") Two little girls: One a princess, the other a shepherd's daughter; both with parents too "kindhearted" to properly discipline them. Can the Wise Woman help them?

I was feeling a little inundated by all the technology flooding our household, and decided to take a step back with George MacDonald. Only one mind you, I did buy it on my Kindle! Anyway, I had to explain the no pictures problem to my children, but they picked up on it quickly. He is such a descriptive writer, and the story is very relatable and can be a very good learning tool if you have anyone who is acting up. Definite recommendation, as well as his The Princess and the Goblin and The Princess and Curdie!

A Double Story is a fairytale about two girls born in another time and another place - one a princess, one a pauper. Their connection is through a mysterious woman who uses fantastical methods to try to help them see and overcome the selfishness in their hearts. The surprises throughout the story prove that this is not your typical fairytale.

I loved this quote: "...one of the sheep-dogs, who was called Prince, and whom I shall not refer to with a WHICH, because he was a very superior animal indeed, even for a sheep-dog, which is the most intelligent of dogs...Thus was the princess provided with a dog for a private tutor - just the right sort for her."

This may have been written for children, but is not a childish story. There is so much wisdom to be gleaned for all of us; a must read for parents, grandparents, teachers and bibliophiles!

The book was not a long read, but the narrator, whoever it is, is a great story-teller and the story though a bit confusing in places, kept my attention and enticed my finishing it.

Moral lessons abound, but I would not categorize this is a "children's story" where most morality lessons are taught. This one is good for anyone who reads it. The only reason I didn't give it a five-star review was because some of the errors distracted a bit and the narration--as stated is a bit confusing.

This is not a typical, "they lived happily ever after" kind of book, though the reader will know that a sequel is not out of the question.

I loved the "old folk tale" feel of the story-telling and I travelled with the characters on their journey and wanted to knock some sense into the two special gilrs and their parents. Trying not to give the story away.

Bravo!

Ahh, this fast became my favorite of his books. The lovely lessons with the two children and the wise woman reveal Christ seeking the lost and transforming hearts with His love. Definitely will re-read this one many times.

Once again MacDonald has somehow pierced my own heart with the light of truth. It is with sadness I see I am too much like the wretched characters in this book. Lord, please mend me.
