Author Bio

GRACE LIVINGSTON HILL (1865–1947) is known as the pioneer of Christian romance. Grace wrote over one hundred faith-inspired books during her lifetime. When her first husband died, leaving her with two daughters to raise, writing became a way to make a living, but she always recognized storytelling as a way to share her faith in God. She has touched countless lives through the years and continues to touch lives today. Her books feature moving stories, delightful characters, and love in its purest form.
 
Grace Livingston Hill began writing stories in 1877 at the tender age of twelve and didn’t stop until her death in 1947. But what may be more amazing is that she has sold over 84 million copies and is still loved by young and old alike. 

Editorial Reviews

I strongly recommend this book to the girls on the verge of marriage. Are you marrying for love and to your kindered-spirit? Or are marrying a man like George and all those other men that only thought of Amorelle as convenient efficient and beautiful to have for themselves and to boast about???

Reading any of Hill’s books is like catching a glimpse of a genteel lady in hat and white gloves sipping tea on the veranda.

It was a well written book and as always GLH presents the gospel and God's affirming love. A good book not to be missed.

    Not To Be Missed

    Amorelle Dean is a minister's daughter. She is capable, lovely and strong with a strong faith and a good Christian upbringing. However, she is quite naive about the ways of the world. With the death of her father, she now has to face the world on her own.

    This book is not so much a romance as a women's fiction. The title of the book is quite fitting. It is all about Amorelle and her life once her father died, her growth personally and spiritually, mistakes she made and the happiness only God can provide in granting her a happily ever after.

    It is a story of great characters and a plot filled with mild intrigue. Most times Grace Livingston Hill doesn't just write a cute romance about boy and girl. There is something else going on in the external plot that drives the story just as much as the falling in love part.

    From the moment her father dies, Amorelle is at the mercy of other people whether they are

    trying to match her up for marriage or turning her into a servant or forcing her into a horrid engagement. Then enters Russell Garrison and finally she has a protector, someone who understands her and appreciates her. Of course, this merely increases the conflict in other areas of Amorelle's life.

    It's almost like a Cinderella story. She is the poor orphan girl who comes to live in her uncle's house with his new wife and her grown daughter. They don't appreciate her and turn her into a servant and later allow an imprudent engagement that Amorelle does not want. When wealthy Garrison arrives, he is like the prince come to rescue her from her trials.

    There are parts of the book which were slow and at times it was agonizing to read how terribly Amorelle was put upon and preyed upon. Once Garrison came into the picture, the story flowed and it became much more interesting. It was a well written book and as always GLH presents the gospel and God's affirming love. A good book not to be missed.

    Amorelle

    I love how Grace pays back to the characters that deserve it. Poor George and Mr Pike fell victims to her righteousness. I really liked the Job and Cinderella and kindred-spirits twists in this book. She made them more original of course but it was sweet to have it all bundled up together in one persons life and see God work His miracle and turn it all into His perfect plan for happyly-ever-after.

    Amorelle's sincerity her meekness her love for the Lord brought her uncle to love her and to find that tangible and precious relationship with the Lord. Lavinia's advises made me miss my grandma who always knew how to give a good advise and lovingly stir me on the right path with our Lord.

    Again she made amazing work of the deep spirituality and inner battles that make you really think through life. I strongly recommend this book to the girls on the verge of marriage. Are you marrying for love and to your kindered-spirit? Or are marrying a man like George and all those other men that only thought of Amorelle as convenient efficient and beautiful to have for themselves and to boast about??

    Why did I rate this book so highly when I had to state that it was not as good as her other books? Because of the principles for Godly living that GLH always emphasizes--and because of a thoroughly satisfying ending based on a magnificent man. However, three reasons for disappointment. First, how could a person like Amorelle fall for a complete jerk like George? GLH's heroines are usually pretty smart. Second, how could she be so stupid as to not check the contents of her father's desk after he passed away? Third, how could she be so ignorant of real basics of the Christian life as the daughter of a minister and after serving in his church for so long so that the second male friend in her life had to instruct her in these? The author wove all these weaknesses into a fine ending to the book, but I must say that I smiled quite a bit while reading it. I'm sure that GLH was trying to show the youth of her generation the folly of getting involved with wrong people and that she probably succeeded.
