    Deliteful read authored by George MacDonald, a Scottish favouri

    Deliteful read authored by George MacDonald, a Scottish favourite. Also known as the Marquis of Lossie, I was attracted to read this particular book having spent time in Lossie of the book's title!
    MacDonald is a master storyteller. Tension mounts almost to the breaking point before there is a turn to provide some relief, then back into another buildup of intensity before resolution. If I didn't actually have to sleep at some point in my 24 hr allotment, I would NOT have put this one down.
    It is #2 in a series, but as I hadn't read the first, this definitely was a great stand-alone. He did well to recount issues to which he alluded, so I was never at a loss for understanding.

    Definitely an action packed adventure, incredibly well described characters engaging my likes and dislikes and leading me on in their character development. I particularly like the male point of view in the romantic attachments and advancements. Verrra nice! [in my best brogue!]

    A few great quotes from this book to inspire..

    ""..the first step toward action is the beginning of the death of doubt..."

    "Malcolm's feeling ran higher than night as he stood thus alone under the stars waiting to embark for he knew not where..."

    “As you grow ready for it, somewhere or other you will find what is needful for you in a book.” 
    ¿ George MacDonald, The Marquis of Lossie

    The Marquis' Secret sparks interest in other works

    The Marquis' Secret is an superb sequel to George MacDonald's The Fisherman's Lady. MacDonald has keen insights into the minds of people and uses this to his very great capacity as a fiction writer. Either a very satisfying read, or one that will spark an insatiable interest in his other works or others with similar themes.
