The Lost Princess: A Double Story, first published in 1875 as The Wise Woman: A Parable, is a fairy tale novel by George MacDonald.

The story describes how a woman of mysterious powers pays visits to two very different young girls: one a princess, the other a shepherd’s daughter. It has been regarded as ahead of its time in its approach to parenting.[1]

Film Adaptations[edit]

In 2011, The Lost Princess was adapted into a full-length feature film by an independent filmmaker. [2]
