Robert Falconer

Author:MacDonald, George (1824-1905)
Description:Robert Falconer, also published under the title of The Musician’s Quest, tells the tale of a young man’s search for God and the meaning of life. After the death of his parents, Robert’s grandmother takes him in. Although she loves and cares for him, she adheres to an austere lifestyle and strict religious doctrines. As Robert struggles to find purpose, he is torn between the severe Christianity of his grandmother and the loving God he feels he knows. Full of genuine human sentiment and thoughtfulness, MacDonald’s novel has fascinated readers for over a century. The author himself considered Robert Falconer his favorite character, and beloved Christian writer C.S. Lewis cited it as one of the books that helped him start out on his spiritual journey.
