Frank Gordon is of higher blood, his father having risen to military distinction -- as his widowed mother reminds him, keeping him from his lower-born childhood friend. Yet Frank knows his father would have approved: for Kirstys father was his own fathers best friend.George MacDonald (1824-1905), best known for At the Back of the North Wind, paints the rolling Scottish landscape and its inhabitants with both beauty and deep understanding, in Heather and Snow.
