At the Back of the North Wind - George MacDonald

Said to be on the bookshelf of C.S. Lewis, At the Back of the North Wind by George MacDonald is the story of a young farm boy, Diamond, who is naturally connected to goodness and nature – he was even named after a horse. Diamond's story unfolds as he befriends, and is befriended by a magical, fairy-like lady who embodies the "North Wind." Inspired by MacDonald's deep Christian faith, as were all his works, the remarkable, moving character of Diamond is in part also based upon MacDonald's own son Maurice, who died very young. Particularly written for young readers, At the Back of the North Wind will please everyone who loves C.S. Lewis's Narnia. The enchanted land of the North Wind will please one and all.
