    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!
