A story of love and loyalty set against the backdrop of the English Civil War -- the only historical novel from the renowned Scottish author.
This unique novel in the MacDonald collection, his only true historical novel, is set during the mid-17th century English Civil War. MacDonald's use of the idiom and stylistic old-English of the post-Shakespearean era make this a slow read in the original. It is greatly enhanced in this new and updated edition by Michael Phillips. St. George and St. Michael is an enchanting love story that offers a unique and balanced perspective on a tumultuous and conflicting era in British history. As Phillips writes in the introduction, "MacDonald portrays a growing spirit of love on all sides. Perhaps this is the key to understanding MacDonald's perspective of the conflict. He refused to take a 'side' at all, focusing instead on the people not the politics."
