Product Description

Chester Thornton still sees his oldest daughter as young and sweet. While Betty Thornton is still young, her sweetness is tainted by a rebellious spirit against the traditional values of her father on family and religion. Chester's solution--moving the family to a remote Vermont farm--seems to be the best decision, until Betty runs away with Dudley Weston, the reckless young boyfriend she left behind. Will her decision cost her life? Or will the efforts of a kind and handsome stranger help her to discover the value of family and faith before it's too late?

Publisher's Description

Teenager Betty Thornton is devastated when she learns that her father will be uprooting his family and moving to a remote Vermont farm far away from her social circle of friends. Rather than passively accepting, Betty takes matters into her own hands and makes plans to elope with Dudley Weston, the reckless young boyfriend she left behind. When her dreams of a breathtaking, whirlwind wedding turn into a disastrous situation, will a handsome stranger be able to restore Betty’s faith and lead the prodigal girl back home? Or will one hasty decision cost more than she bargained?

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

Grace Livingston Hill weaves a timeless tale that any parent would find helpful in assessing where their own family stands and the need for the teaching of Biblical truths to our children. The characters leap from the book with such strength that I literally found myself speaking to them about their behavior, or chiding them for their blindness to the truth.

The author’s setting descriptions are so vivid you could feel the cold wrapping around you, dragging you into the world of wintry Vermont in the 1920’s. Her character descriptions through the dialogue and their actions really brought them to life. All in all, the writing in this book is better than any other book I’ve read by Grace Livingston Hill.

    This review was written for The Prodigal Girl - eBook.
    Although written over 80 years ago, this book is relevant today. Betty is a typical rebellious teenager whose parents realize they have failed to instill traditional values in their children and decide to rectify this by moving to the country. While she starts to enjoy some aspects of the slower pace of life, Betty is still determined to escape and runs off with her boyfriend. She finds herself in a situation she can't control, much as a young person today would find herself in similar circumstances.

    Unlike many modern people, Betty has been exposed to traditional Christian values. After realizing the hopelessness of her situation, she realizes she must turn to the ultimate authority and power, God. The results are far beyond anything she expected or hoped for.

    This well-written story may be an inspiration to readers of all ages with its timeless theme of hope and redemption.

    For me, It's difficult to understand how a lovely person like Grace Livingston Hill could give us the rebellious words of Betty and the two other older Thornton young people in this book. At times, I wondered if I could continue reading of such rebellion! However, I came to wonder if the setting of this book isn't pretty much a reflection of current society. I'm glad I read the book. The wisdom of the father can't be easily forgotten. GLH had a lot to get across in this book, and she did it successfully!
