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!
Marion's humble attitude about everything in her life cause me to take a look at my own attitude. However, Marion thought everything was her fault. I wanted her to stand up to Jennie and Isabel but she remained the same. This book held me for two days and then the wonderful ending. Marion was truly rewarded for her kindness. I loved this book and will order other books by this author. I have already passed it on to a friend with high recommendation.
I am thrilled to have Grace Livingston Hill books back in print. I love her books and this was just as good as all the rest that I have read. God's love doesn't have social barriers. It is refreshing to read about ladies who have a strong faith in God even in difficult circumstances
It continues to amaze me how Grace Livingston Hill could write so many romance novels and come up with a different approach in each one. This book is no exception.
The idea of the roses and how they were used I consider to be not only clever but very romantic--something which is missing in our world today, as well as a heroine who is not only humble but also has a sensitive, God-given conscience.
