Another book in the bestselling George MacDonald classic reprint series retold for today's reader by Michael R. Phillips.
A companion volume to The Lady's Confession and The Curate's Awakening (though each story is complete in itself), this is the story of Richard, the apprentice of the title. While an infant, he had been rescued from someone who viewed him as a threat, and his childhood and eventual apprenticeship as a bookbinder were marked by steady growth, both as a man of integrity and a skilled artisan. As a young man, Richard unknowingly returns to the estate of his birth, hired as a bookbinder to repair old volumes in the library.
George MacDonald, Scotland's master storyteller, brilliantly unfolds Richard's discovery of his heritage, both earthly and spiritual, through the help of Thomas Wingfold, the Curate to whom MacDonald readers have already been introduced.
Unforgettable fiction with rare spiritual impact from Bethany House!
