I really think the writing the characters were delightful and exciting!!! You just cannot relay their conversations without delight. I loved it! Hard to put down writing. Funny. Very touching and tear full at some parts. And totally inspiring all over
blogspot.com - Cindi Burleson

I would recommend that any young girl, or any woman for that matter, read all of her books.

Miss Pippi Reads - Miss Pippi

It's a tale of how each of the Reeds overcome their new lifestyle - a move to a neglected neighborhood and entering employment. They question God and find He is with them in their new life. Even with pain in their lives, they learn to lean on the Lord and find joy in their circumstances.

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.

This is my favorite Grace Livingston Hill book. I read this book as a teenager and still love it today....20+ years later. The hope and beauty of the story are truly inspiring.

Hott Synopsis: The Reed family is down on it’s luck. First, father died. Then the bank closed it’s doors. Then a small mortgage turned into a big problem. Now, they’re stuck with no jobs, not hope of returning to college, and no place to live. Until mother remembers a small house that she’d forgotten they own. It’s in one of the worst districts but it’s their only chance to make it. What is God’s plan for this loving family? Hott Review: I devoured this book! Honestly, the only thing that reminded me that it wasn’t happening now was the mention of money. Reading this book is like going home and relaxing. April Gold is very much intended for one who already has faith in God and wants to strengthen it instead of one who knows nothing.

Grace Livingston Hill is at her best in this novel. More than a boy girl romance, the story told is about a family whose father has recently died. Until his death, their circumstances were comfortable; a beautiful home in a nice neighborhood, and Marilla's brother attending college. Unfortunately, unscrupulous businessmen attempt to swindle the family and the family must struggle without the father who had provided so well for them. Reading about the way they pull together, the mother taking a stronger role in her children's lives, and the brother and sister each working out a future so different from the one they had taken for granted, is very inspiring. Almost a century since it's first publication, the story and it's circumstances still have relevance today. If you are a fan of Grace Livingston Hill, please know, this is one of her best.
