At the Back of the North Wind
Diamond lives in a hay-loft, which is just right for him, since his father named him after a horse. One night Diamond has a visitor. She's a beautiful woman with long black hair. She calls herself the North Wind, and--holding tight to her long braids--she whisks Diamond over London and shows him many wonderful sights. But the best thing of all is when she takes him to the country at "the back" of the North Wind, a dream-like land where the cold wind never blows.Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.

One of my favorites. All three stories in this volume are good, but At the Back of the North Wind is beautiful, poignant, harsh, and fantastic all at once. Surpirsingly dangerous for a Victorian writer. Read full review
