GHott5 Stars Out Of 5Great set of romances for all ages!September 5, 2015GHottQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Marigold
What I love most about Marigold is the things her mother tells her about life, falling in love, and about Gods love for us.
I believe this book is perfect for Christian teens. The romance they desire is shown within Marigolds pages while still reminding readers that we need to be patient for Gods gifts they cant be forced.
What I liked: I thoroughly enjoyed Mystery Flowers! It was completely about trusting the Lord with our lives and letting go of pride and worldly things.
Diana is one of my favorite characters in all of the Grace Livingston Hill books Ive read. Shes a strong person who, even when shes not familiar with God, has a strong knowledge of right and wrong, and who refuses to compromise even for someone she loves.
What I didnt like: Its a great lesson, but may be misinterpreted
What I liked: I believe this is my favorite. Even though Ive read White Orchids previously, I loved every word. There is so much in this book to make you feel like Gods speaking to your heart that you just cant put it down. Plus, its just a great story & romance!
What I didnt like: Im sorry that I cant make all young ladies read this!
Robin Willson5 Stars Out Of 5Timeless romance!August 12, 2015Robin WillsonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As a teenager, Grace Livingston Hill was one of my first favorite authors. I started collecting her books where ever I could find them. I remembered reading one of the books in this set, but not the other two, so reading this was like coming home to me.
I just love the grace of the characters in her books (no pun intended). There is always one character who has a strong Christian background, and usually their mothers are involved one way or another. Something that she felt very strongly about was the mode of dress and wayward way of life of the "modern" society, and those things are still very much true today. One thing is for sure, you will feel comforting love come through in each story. I highly recommend this book set for women of all ages, but especially for young adults.

Stephanieupstate NYAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Dated? Language, perhaps, but lessons are timeless!June 30, 2015Stephanieupstate NYAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This collection tells about three different woman: Marigold wants to fit in with 'in' crowd; Diana struggles when her father marries her manipulative, wicked cousin; and Camilla accepts the help of a handsome stranger for her sick mother.
Though some may think GLH's books are dated, the lessons are timeless and biblical. Each moral conundrum that the main character faces is presented with truth from God's Word. The salvation message is almost always woven throughout her books, as well as clear verses on Christian living.
I enjoy almost every GLH book I read...and, though each 'flower bride' was engaging and entertaining, I liked Camilla's story best!
