Overview

The Wise Woman.By: George MacDonald (Original Version) by George MacDonald

George MacDonald was an influential Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister. MacDonald's works (particularly his fairy tales and fantasy novels) claimed the admiration of such authors as J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and Madeleine L'Engle.

The Wise Woman fairy tale was one of MacDonald's more popular works. This delightful story describes how a woman of mysterious powers pays visits to two very different young girls: one a princess, the other a shepherd's daughter. Neither girl is left unchanged by the startling events that are unleashed as a result: and the reader is confronted by astonishing fairy-worlds in which the girls are forced to choose between good and evil.

The Wise Woman has been subsequently republished under various titles, including:
- The Lost Princess, and
- A Double Story.
