The Little Minister

by James M. Barrie

This picturing of Scottish village life and characters is a delightful one. Gavin Dishart, untried and tremendously in earnest in his high calling, is given charge of the Auld Licht Manse in Thrumms, where he at once becomes the property of all the Kirk and village folk, subject at all times to their fond interference and severe criticism. His experiences are told with the mingling of quaint humor and delicate pathos which characterizes the author. The story of the Little Minister's manly love for and loyal holding to the Egyptian, a fascinating gipsy girl, who crosses his path, is a lovely glimpse of the power of a true man's love; and the awakening of thoughtless, untamed Babby to the deeper meaning of life through her love for Gavin is told with great tenderness and beauty. The plot is a strong one and is given with true dramatic power.
