The Elect Lady

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.7 stars; 23 reviews)

Two farmer's sons and a cotter's daughter, though on different rungs of the social scale, formed a close bond in childhood as they learned together how to follow Jesus. When adults, their lives are bound up in unusual ways with those of their landlord, his daughter, and her cousin. How will the Laird's secret affect them all?

One of MacDonald's shorter and lesser-known novels, "The Elect Lady" yet contains wonderfully endearing characters, plot twists, love, and life lessons. As always, read with discernment as MacDonald's controversial (sometimes unbiblical) beliefs are presented. - Summary by HannahMary (6 hr 1 min)
