The Light Princess by George MacDonald is a rather short story (fifteen chapters in all, some of which are extremely short). It is about a princess, cursed at her naming by an evil relative, and a prince who, wandering in search of the perfect bride for himself, falls in love with her, and offers his life to save her and her people. It is a beautiful story of Redemption, Love, Death, and Life. Read it for yourself!
