Author Bio

GRACE LIVINGSTON HILL (1865–1947) is known as the pioneer of Christian romance. Grace wrote over one hundred faith-inspired books during her lifetime. When her first husband died, leaving her with two daughters to raise, writing became a way to make a living, but she always recognized storytelling as a way to share her faith in God. She has touched countless lives through the years and continues to touch lives today. Her books feature moving stories, delightful characters, and love in its purest form.
 
Grace Livingston Hill began writing stories in 1877 at the tender age of twelve and didn’t stop until her death in 1947. But what may be more amazing is that she has sold over 84 million copies and is still loved by young and old alike.

    Grace Livingston Hill was a wonderful author, and this particular printing has lovely paper. I enjoy her story-telling, especially when she witnesses for Christ in her stories.

    This review was written for The Treasured Brides Collection.
    The Treasured Brides Collection by Grace Livingston Hill is a three-in-one collection. I was very impressed with all three stories.

    The stories included are The Big Blue Soldier, Found Treasure, and The Patch of Blue. Each individual story stands alone and are very well written. The one common thread throughout all of these stories is that the one source of our finding happiness, healing, redemption, peace and love is God. These stories will truly move you.

    If you enjoy inspirational fiction--stories of timeless romance, from an amazing author, then this is a book you must this add to your collection.

    I was given this book by bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.

    The Treasured Brides Collection by Grace Livingston Hill is a three-in- one volume. The stories are The Big Blue Soldier(set just after WWI), Found Treasure(set in 1928), and The Patch of Blue(set in 1932). All three are enjoyable and entertaining.

    The Big Blue Soldier involves a woman named Marilla who is expecting her nephew to visit her after he is discharged from the Army. Due to circumstances out of her control, her nephew is replaced with the soldier. She has the soldier for dinner and introduces him to her neighbor. Relationships develop.

    Found Treasure involves the Martin sisters and their relationships, especially Effie. She has been labeled a tomboy and made fun of by the girls growing up. This story shows that being yourself is the best way to be.

    A Patch Blue is the last story and the one I enjoyed the most. Chris Walton has come from a wealthy family and that changes when his father's bank fails. He loses his friends and has to get a job. But throughout it all his family remains positive and happy.

    This collection is inspirational and enjoyable. It is light-reading.

    I recieved this book from the publisher and the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    The Treasured Brides Collection

    By Grace Livingston Hill

    Three Timeless Romances

    from a Beloved Author

    I've always loved the simple beauty found in Grace Livingston Hill's books. So when The Book Club Network offered a chance to read and review this just released collection from Barbour I jumped at the chance. After all these were 3 stories from Grace Livingston Hill that I had never read before.

    The first story is The Big Blue Soldier. The First World War has ended and Sergeant Lyman Gage has just received word that his business has failed, his fiancee has become engaged to another man, and he is in debt to his former fiancee's father. Lyman is understandably dejected when he is approached by an unusual woman who invites him to dinner and to pretend that he is her nephew.

    What follows is a delightful and sweet story about seeing past the outer person and seeing the heart. The kindness of strangers heals a broken heart and brings happiness to a hurting lonely heart.

    The second story is Found Treasure. Effie Martin is a despised young woman - her youthful, tomboyish habits are felt to be an embarrassment to anyone unfortunate to be caught in her company. Her mother despairs of ever turning this selfish, self-centered girl into a lady and her sister Eleanor loathes her little sister who tries to get her part in Eleanor's activities. But Effie is searching for something, she feels unwanted by anyone and wonders if there is even a purpose to her very being.

    But when Effie steps forward and saves a life she comes to the attention of several people, including Lawrence Earle. Lawrence helps Effie to become more than she ever saw herself becoming. She became Euphemia a "woman of good repute" all because someone was willing to give her a chance.

    This story finds the worth and treasure of a person within their heart. Outward appearance and monetary worth mean nothing if one cannot find peace and comfort in a relationship with God.

    The third story is The Patch of Blue. Chris Walton had everything. A father of good standing who was the bank president. He lived in a spacious house in an elegant well-to-do neighborhood. He was heading for his final year of college, played football, and was making the most of his life when everything changed. When his family's life of privilege was suddenly over Chris learns who his true friends are. And he learns who he truly is thanks to Natalie Halsey.

    This story shows that one's happiness need not be tied to wealth, position, and possessions but rather in a daily walk with God and contentment with what we do have. This is shown in the changes of Chris's demeanor and attitude from the opening until the closing of the story.

    One item of note concerning this book it is not large print, but the print is larger than most books that are regular print - so if you like large print books this maybe one you want to check-out.

    Thanks to The Book Club Network and Barbour for offering me this book in exchange for my honest review.
