Still relevant, even from the early 1900s.

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

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!

Finding God

This was such an enjoyable story. God does make Himself known to those who truly seek Him. But whosoever will can be saved by faith in Christ Jesus

Faith of our Fathers

GL Hill was my grandmother’s favorite author. It was great fun finding a selection by her in audible!
