Originally written in German, the setting of the novel is in the Carpathian Mountains. From the preface by George MacDonald: "It was indeed a bold undertaking when our author chose for his hero a man who could not read or write, who had no special inclination, no personal aptitude for social or public affairs, and would present him attempting the noblest impossibility, from a divine sense of wrong done to others than himself, and duty owed by him to all men and to God - a duty become his because he alone was left to do it. I have seldom, if ever, read a work of fiction that moved me with so much admiration.". Bookseller Inventory #
