Publisher's Summary

Shirley Hollister is desperate. She, her ailing mother, and her four siblings are being forced out of their cramped city apartment. Where to go on her meager stenographer's salary? On a whim, she takes a trolley ride into the countryside and spies a barn: spacious, full of light, and surrounded by God's wondrous nature. Her new landlord, Sidney Graham, is intrigued by this lovely young woman and her plans to turn his abandoned barn into a home.

Famed Christian fiction author Grace Livingston Hill's tale of a plucky girl determined to better her life is full of romance and adventure as Shirley (in escapades reminiscent of Nancy Drew and The Perils of Pauline) confounds spies and embezzlers with her quick thinking and profound faith.

Loved it and finished with a positive outlook on life. It left me feeling optimistic about facing my own challenges in life with the help of God.

Enchanted describes this read to a "T"

Only Grace Livingston Hill can make a story come to life, in a way that has a kind, gentle way. She always has the Lord Jesus Christ woven within the story. The ending has Christ and His love for all involved as the story concluded that can be applied to everyday life. I do enjoy Ms. Hill's books. You will to especially if you know the Lord Jesus Christ!

Nice and clean cut

I absolutely love the voice of the reader. She does a great job interpreting the emotions and the personalities of the characters. The overall story had some great unexpected twists. However, the ending was a little flat. If you want a clean story with early American culture and charm, this is the book for you!

Heartwarming classic

Excellent narration adds much value to this uplifting classic, written in 1917 by a devout Presbyterian minister’s daughter. This adventurous tale includes kids, kittens, bunnies, chickens, gold mines, cutthroats, and...the US Secret Service. Lol! The setting is Philadelphia. Grace Hill knew that city well and accurately portrays Philly’s ubiquitous “row house” red brick apartments. There is a Christian message, as with all her books.
This book was produced as a silent b/w movie back in the day, according to the author’s biography.

Very Quaint and Sweet story.

I love this book! It's sweet and innocent and quaint. We have a hard copy from the early 1900's. Everyone just loves this fairytale love story.

Charming

Absurdly sentimental plot; and yet... I loved it, in its escapist optimism; and it was beautifully read. Is this what one calls a guilty pleasure?
