Overview

Grace Livingston Hill (1865-1947) was an early 20th Century "Christian Romance" novelist. She was immensely popular in the time that she wrote, contributing hundreds of novels and short stories during her lifetime. Her characters were most often young female ingénues, frequently strong Christian women or those who become so within the confines of the story. Grace's messages are quite simplistic in nature: good versus evil. As Grace believed the Bible was very clear about what was good and what was evil in life, she reflected that cut-and-dried design in her own works. She touched on subjects such as infidelity, defiance, hard-heartedness towards God, and deception, to name just a few. Grace wrote about them all and could manage a happy, or at least satisfactory, ending to any situation. Jesus, the ever-present (though unseen) reoccurring character, manages to heal or mend any situation Grace imagined. It was no wonder that in her days she was known as the "Queen of Christian Romance. " Her works include: The Girl from Montana (1908), The Mystery of Mary (1911) and Lo, Michael! (1913)

    Powerful book!

    This is my absolute favorite book by Grace Livingston Hill. Michael was raised on the streets of New York. As a young boy, he takes a bullet meant for the toddler daughter of a wealthy New York Banker. For saving his child's life, the father sends him to school for an education. The boy does not want to leave his friends behind, but agrees to go so that he can someday return and better the lives of his friends. As an adult, he returns to New York to find his friends and is startled to find out what they have become. But he is eager to help them and his old neighborhood by educating and bettering the lives of the poor. He works a day job and uses all his money to help the poor. And the people begin to change for the better due to education and putting them in touch with nature, through working the soil on the farm. Through it all, he struggles with his feelings for the girl her saved as a girl. It was a very wonderful book about social problems in the early 1900's and the influence of one's faith and loyalty which compelled people to step out of their comfort zones and reach out to others.
