the day boy and night girl

George MacDonald

"You must learn to be strong in the dark as well as in the day, else you will always be only half brave." I read this book while struggling to fall asleep with jet-lag. I read it in one sitting, cover to cover. And then I fell in love with it. A Scottish fairy-tale novel that dives deeper into uncharted waters than you could ever imagine. A story about a golden boy born into daylight but afraid of darkness, which wraps around the sensitive maiden born into the night. His descriptions are filled with wonder and understanding, and the whole story allows you to be a child again while reading a story with a true lesson within it.
