I am so glad I found Grace's book when I was first saved 1973. she has characters who are committed to the Lord.
They have trails and don't do everything right but they always go back to living to glory God. I love the song she quotes. The house hold hints (cooking, clothing and decorating and the insight into having a daily relationship with God. They are old fashioned in some ways but the core of the conflict is still faced by Christians today. Treat yourself to a Grace Livingston Hill book!
This book is somewhat different from most of Grace Livingston Hill's books, in my opinion, but it is still good. The characters are all very interesting--including Athalie!--and it is certainly different and worthwhile to read about a male scientist who has ignored obligations to his daughters and who has lost his belief in God. In addition to Patterson Greeves, some of the characters are certainly memorable: the minister, the older daughter, Barry, the maid Anne. Longing to know what happened to Mr. Greeves, I didn't want to lay the book down. The author didn't tie up the loose ends tidily at the end, as she usually did. But it's easy for the reader to do so, with very satisfying results!
