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

Such a beautiful story of the saving grace of God and the happiness and joy he promises if we will only give our lives to Him. This was so much more a story of Constance finding The Lord than finding a mate. Highly Recommended!

The late Grace Livingston Hill was an influential writer who helped launch the Christian romance fiction genre that has proved to be so enduringly popular as a wholesome literary entertainment. Her grace and skill as an engaging storyteller has seldom been matched and never surpassed.

This book had an old fashioned air about it, but it was refreshing. Friends are the first loves of your life. Christian romances are always sweet and clean. This once is a fine example of that. It is well written with an emotional build up, some suspense. I was sad to see it end.

    Such a beautiful story of the saving grace of God and the happiness and joy he promises if we will only give our lives to Him.

    Constance Courtland is a rich college girl more interested in her social calendar than her relationship with God. What she does want though is her grandmother's heirloom matched pearls. In order to get them, she just has to attend church and be confirmed into the membership. This she does and gains the pearls.

    At church during her confirmation, Constance meets Seagave. He's new in town and joining the church too. He is like a delightful breath of fresh air to Constance and yet she doesn't quite know what to think of him. Graham Seagave is a Christian young man with high ideals who initially believes Constance shares his faith. When he realizes, the discrepancy he so willingly and beautifully witnesses to her. He's such an honest sincere person from day one and nothing like the men Connie knows as he proclaims Gods great promises.

    This was so much more a story of Constance finding The Lord than finding a mate. It was lovely to see the dynamic of Constance's character. She changed from a spoiled rich girl to a lovely young woman with a heart opening to God until she does finally ask him in.

    Seagrave is an example of how all Christians should endeavor to be. He doesn't just claim to know Christ; he has a personal relationship and the ability to share Christ for any who will listen. It is beautiful how much Bible he has memorized so that he can pull out a passage as needed. Quite inspiring.

    How beautiful it was to see how Constance's introduction to Seagrave opens her eyes to what a sinner she is. Like so many who are lost, they can't see their sin as though they are blind until someone points it out to them. Then it becomes so obvious they can't neglect to see it. Constance first realizes it when she gets back to college and even more so after she returns home after graduation and she begins reading Seagrave's Bible. She knows now more than ever what a sinner and a hypocrite she is.

    The book includes beautiful descriptions of nature: weather, breezes, flowers, etc. GLH is akin to L.M. Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables) in the beautiful, flowery descriptions that flow masterfully and succinctly over the page creating visual pictures in the mind of the reader.

    This is one of those books to enjoy and savor. The plot carries you swiftly from chapter to chapter and is quite emotional. The gospel is simply revealed in the author's beautiful prose through the minster of the hero.

    The romantic finale develops into a gift to our characters from The Lord above. Some readers might find the story old-fashioned from its sentimentality to the style of prose with more telling than showing, but the message in this book is just as strong and just as poignant as it was back in 1933. I do wish there had been more interaction of hero and heroine in the middle of the book. Of course, this is when Constance went through the introspection and growth she needed to do on her own. By the time Seagrave does return, Constance was finally ready to make a commitment to Christ and to Seagrave.

    Highly Recommended!

    What a precious testimony! Id love to think it was a true story maybe there is a person to whom, maybe not in all details, but it is a true testimony.

    Connie is a playful girl who knows her limits of course but still is a bad sinner and even worse after she mocks God's vows for a string of matched pearls. The way the events run in this book like a perfect string of pearls makes me think of the verse in Romans 8:28 and realize that nothing happens by chance in life. People we meet, some carelessly thrown words or some well thought out discussions. We think they just pass on a wind never realizing that our words may well haunt someone's dreams.

    The power of a prayer for an unbeliever is amazingly described. I have seen that power at work in our family and it touched me how she described in detail the turmoil it has caused to poor Connie.

    Of course its a romance novel and they --perfect strangers-- fall madly in love. And it was beautiful. But Connie's Dories' and Frank's conversion to christianity so in contrast to what they were thought in school was a highlight of this book and made me rethink my path with the Lord. Enjoy! I really did.
