Not Under the Law was the first book I read by Grace Livingston Hill. Since then, I have purchased several more, and will continue to buy them. This book clearly spoke the Gospel. I plan to lend it to some women I know that like to read, however they are not saved. Maybe this will make an impact that my words haven't been able to.
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!
Grace Livingston Hill in her new book, "Not Under The Law" Book Eleven in the Love Endures series published by Barbour Publishing, Inc. takes us into the life of Joyce Radway.
From the back cover: "She was paralyzed with fear_Who knew what desperate criminals these might be? Grave robbers would not hesitate to dig a new grave."
In a moment of frustration, Joyce Radway walks out on her cousins, determined never to return and give into their selfish demands that she serve them rather than follow her dream of becoming a teacher. But in her haste to leave town, Joyce unwittingly stumbles on some men out to cover up their actions in a cemetery plot.
Joyce is both stunned and afraidÃ¢â¬âespecially when she recognizes her childhood friend among the menÃ¢â¬âbut she narrowly escapes, unaware that as she builds her new life she's being followed.
Ruthless and swarthy, Tyke is out to silence the only witness to his crime. His partner, Darcy, is out to silence the guilt that plagues his heart. As their determined searches bring them closer and closer to Joyce, will God's law protect her against men who are a law unto themselves?
When Grace Livingston Hill's first husband died he left her with two young daughters to raise. In an effort to support her family she turned to writing. However, Ms. Hill just didn't want to write just anything she wanted to write stories of faith. Nothing blows up, there are no car chases and the future of the world is not in jeopardy yet "Not Under the Law" is very exciting. Originally written in 1934 "Not Under the Law" is a wonderful story of how God can take our circumstances and change them to the better. Joyce Radway has very bad luck. Not only does she witness a crime but the they see her and know who she is. Now they are out to hunt her down and eliminate her as the only witness even though she is trying to start a new life for herself. The only one who is really going to help her get out of this is God. How this story is all going to work out is what makes for really delightful reading. I think "Not Under the Law" is a suspenseful thriller and a wonderful romance that will keep you reading as to what happens next. Ms. Hill knows how to tell a great story and while it may be old it still is a powerful story.
