You can read Home Again by Macdonald George in our library for absolutely free. Read various fiction books with us in our e-reader. In the dusk of the old-fashioned best room of a farm-house, in the faint glow of the buried sun through the sods of his July grave, sat two elderly persons, dimly visible, breathing the odor which r. .ses unseen sent through the twilight and open window. A less well-known novel by George MacDonald, a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister of the nineteenth century, is one of his realistic works.

Another warm and deep story from George MacDonald. It is a modern retelling of the Prodigal Son (modern for MacDonald's time - mid 1800's).

He left the countryside the follower of restless ambition. Another warm and deep story from George MacDonald.

This story starts when Walter Colman, the protagonist, is a young man "possessed with the idea...that he is a most precious specimen of pure and honorable humanity." Seeking employment away from the farm, he pursues the literary life as a book reviewer in London. He comes to realize firsthand the damaging effects of a life of self-deception and lack of complete candor. Through disappointment and hardship he matures, but in the process is required to return deathly ill to his father back on the farm. The portrayal of his father's love is quite moving.

Walter hasn't been a true prodigal, but his lack of self-awareness and the understanding of others has led to difficult times. By the end he has walked into the fullness of God's truth and calling. He is helped in a sweet way by his distant cousin and comes to realize his deep love for her. MacDonald portrays her as a strong and noble woman, full of virtue and love for Walter.

This story is not, in my view, one of MacDonald's first tier works but is still rich with Godly wisdom. I deducted 1 star because he devotes a small amount of time to the telling of ghost stories, which seems to add nothing to the book. One could even say it's a distraction and seems out of place. I skimmed over that portion.

I recommend the book. It is relatively short. Thank you Amazon for making it available.

The title gives away the ending of this XXXII chapter novel. Walter Colman, son of a gentleman farmer, has aspirations of becoming a poet, and so his father sends him to London where the young man can attempt to launch his career. While he's there, he gets caught up in a circle of people who cause him to rethink his life and eventually return home. Because it's a short story, it contains fewer of MacDonald's sermons than usual, and because the story takes place in England, there's no highland dialect.

Great classic. A favourite author. Great for everyone in family . Good lessons
  • Ynye
This is an inexpensive paperback edition of an important book. However there are some typing errors in the text; there is no identified publisher; and the title page states "Home Again"/ "The Elect Lady"--implying there are two George MacDonald novels in the volume instead of only one.

I was disappointed with Home Again because it was so familiar, I believe
it is taken from another MacDonald book. His works seem to overlap which
is not a criticism. I love George MacDonald's works and will continue to
read all I can.
