Still relevant, even from the early 1900s.

Grace Livingston Hill has always been one of my favorite writers! Her books are a blessing!

Wonderful

I highly recommend this book written in 1919. Beautifully written with depth of meaning. The narrator is so pleasant to listen to also. I will listen to more books by this author.

Refreshing, and tender...not without suspense.

Fine story, reminding us of an earlier century when America was in crisis. Heart warming to the end.

Sweet story

Enjoyed Listening to the story. I was always a fan of the narration, but for most of the story the voice she picked wasn’t irritating.
Sweet story although a little predictable.

Classic

This is one of the earliest Christian romances that started a whole genre. The romance is strong but following the dictates of society at the time, and both characters experience a Christian conversion.

A Beautiful Story to lift our spirits

I am so grateful there are stories such as this one.
The sweetness of Lil was so refreshing and hers and John’s quest to find God gave inspiration for us to do the same I. This very difficult time where the World is upside down.
I think if we become angry over Christian themed books, we might want to look at our own hearts to see who is controlling it!
