Alec Forbes of Howglen (hardcover)
The second of MacDonald’s major Scottish realistic novels, narrates the story of Annie Anderson and Alec Forbes. Set in Huntly in northern Scotland (fictionalized as “Glamerton”) this novel contains a number of autobiographical glimpses into MacDonald’s own childhood in the small Scottish town where he was raised. Some critics consider this work to be MacDonald’s best and most literarily cohesive work of fiction.
