Meet the Author


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 in her new book, ¿Coming Through the Rye¿

    Grace Livingston Hill in her new book, “Coming Through the Rye” Book
    Eight in the Love Endures series published by Barbour Publishing, Inc.
    takes us into the life of Romayne Ransom. From the back cover:
    “Another lightning glance went around the circle. She could not tell
    what it was about, that quick motionless look…but it gave her a chill of
    foreboding.” Happy times become the worst of times in a matter of
    moments for Romayne Ransom. After returning home from a canceled
    weekend party, Romayne finds a houseful of officers lying in wait for
    her father and brother. When the chief officer claims her family is part
    of a bootlegging operation, Romayne denies the accusations…until she
    glimpses a hidden underworld and the horrid truth is too plain to deny.
    Now Romayne must rely on her instincts as she desperately tries to clear
    her beloved father’s name–and survive on her own. Evan Sherwood hoped
    to bring down the illegal bootlegging rings that threatened his city,
    never expecting to drag an innocent young woman into harm’s way. But
    now Romayne’s life is in jeopardy. And the willful woman refuses to let
    him offer a helping hand. But as danger lurks close, Romayne’s only
    option is to trust love. 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 anything she wanted to write stories of faith. Originally
    written in 1928 “Coming Through the Rye” is a wonderful story of how God
    can take our circumstances and change them to the better. Bootleggers,
    Prohibition and gangsters, this story has them all. Romayne didn’t know
    that due to the collapse of family funds her father and brother had
    taken to bootlegging. Now with both of them gone Romayne is on her own
    trying to survive all the adventures that face her. Evan is there to
    try to help her but she isn’t accepting his help as he caused this
    trouble for her in the first place. Well, so she thinks. I think
    “Coming Through the Rye” is an exciting story 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. If you would like to listen to interviews with other authors and
