When Alan Monteith decides to help a friend in need by delivering a bottle of medicine to a sick woman, he never imagined being stranded in a blizzard. And he never imagined climbing a mountain on foot. But when his car breaks down in front of the Devereaux’s home, that’s just what he ends up doing. Daryl Devereaux was looking forward to a peaceful holiday until Alan Monteith arrives. As the young stranger and her brother trudge into the storm, Daryl is left to pray for their safe return, never realizing that night will change their lives forever.
Momnana5 Stars Out Of 5Grace Livingston Hill BookJanuary 28, 2015MomnanaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I was a young teenager my Aunt Lou introduced me to Grace Livingston Hill books by passing them on to me. I fell in love with this author right from the start. This book "The Substitute Guest was my favorite of all times. CBC had a good sell on this book at the time of purchase. And I love the new update of the book too. The cover was changed to make the book look more appealing and it was bigger too then a normal small paper back. If you want a good read....this is the book....The Substitute Guest. You will fall in love with this authors's writing. She has so many to read and they are all good. I just happened to love this story the best and remember it as a teenager. I just ordered several more of her books. When you find a good author and a good price.....they are worth reading again and again.

My grandmother loved scouring flea markets and book barns for copies of her books. Before my grandma died, I believe she collected FIVE full sets of GLH books!
I have read many of them, but not all, and I have enjoyed seeing them becoming available for my Kindle.
Thanks to NetGalley, I was able to read The Substitute Guest, a tender story set around Christmastime, making for a warm, cozy read in these fall and winter months. The Substitute Guest clearly shows the difference between a family who loves and follows the Lord and the lost and lonely world. Their shining testimony is what makes a seeking young lawyer, stranded in the snow on Christmas, see his own need for Christ and the change He makes in our life when we receive Him.
Although The Substitute Guest was written over 60 years ago and some of the language, convictions, and Biblical truth will be considered 'dated' and 'old-fashioned' by some, I found the story refreshingly honest and sweet.
*I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was given, and all thoughts are 100% mine.*
