about

This modern telling of an a classic fantasy allows a new generation of children access to the story of Diamond, a child of Victorian England, and North Wind, the magical being who carries him through the skies. Their adventures together reveal the glimmer of wonder and love shining even within the grim poverty of nineteenth-century London.

Kenneth McIntosh, author of Following Aslan, writes that "At the Back of the North Wind is a cross between a Dickens novel and the Narnia stories. The tale weaves back and forth between gritty reality and fantasy, evoking powerful lessons in life and spirituality from both worlds. This new edition from Anamchara Books is a fine way to enjoy this timeless classic."

Like all the best fantasies, the story is as enjoyable for adults as it is for children. George MacDonald was a great spiritual myth-maker who embedded thought-provoking ideas into his fiction. Author Sheila Stewart has remained faithful to his story, while placing it in the setting of modern-day vocabulary. Rolland Hein, George MacDonald expert, writes that the Anamchara version is "attractively rendered in an up-to-date style, faithfully conveying the story's mythic impact."
