Overview

The sun was already up and the grass blades were twinkling with sparkles of dew, as Marcia stepped from the kitchen door.
She wore a chocolate calico with little sprigs of red and white scattered over it, her hair was in smooth brown braids down her back, and there was a flush on her round cheeks that might have been but the reflection of the rosy light in the East. Her face was as untroubled as the summer morning, in its freshness, and her eyes as dreamy as the soft clouds that hovered upon the horizon uncertain where they were to be sent for the day.
Marcia walked lightly through the grass, and the way behind her sparkled again like that of the girl in the fairy-tale who left jewels wherever she passed.
A rail fence stopped her, which she mounted as though it had been a steed to carry her onward, and sat a moment looking at the beauty of the morning, her eyes taking on that far-away look that annoyed her stepmother when she wanted her to hurry with the dishes, or finish a long seam before it was time to get supper.
She loitered but a moment, for her mind was full of business, and she wished to accomplish much before the day was done. Swinging easily down to the other side of the fence she moved on through the meadow, over another fence, and another meadow, skirting the edge of a cool little strip of woods which lured her with its green mysterious shadows, its whispering leaves, and twittering birds. One wistful glance she gave into the sweet silence, seeing a clump of maiden-hair ferns rippling their feathery locks in the breeze. Then resolutely turning away she sped on to the slope of Blackberry Hill.
It was not a long climb to where the blackberries grew, and she was soon at work, the great luscious berries dropping into her pail almost with a touch. But while she worked the vision of the hills, the sheep meadow below, the river winding between the neighboring farms, melted away, and she did not even see the ripe fruit before her, because she was planning the new frock she was to buy with these berries she had come to pick.
Pink and white it was to be; she had seen it in the store the last time she went for sugar and spice. There were dainty sprigs of pink over the white ground, and every berry that dropped into her bright pail was no longer a berry but a sprig of pink chintz. While she worked she went over her plans for the day.

    Sweet classic story

    This was a sweet Christian romance - but the spelling was atrocious. Whoever handled writing the story-text did not put a lot of care or consideration into it. I was very disappointed.

    Awful spelling

    Almost impossible to read. Paragraphs full of grammatical characters. Had to quit reading, it was giving me a headache. What happened to spell check? A one sstar is more then this deserves.

    I Also Recommend:

    Awful

    Sorry for being so offensive but I was attracted to the premise, and all the time I thought the book would get better, and I want to spare others the agony.

    The book was unrealistic, underdeveloped, and excruciating. Even for a book that is obviously for escapism and the 'fantasy/ideal' alone, it was awful. Truly, truly, terrible. As a woman and a human being I was offended by all of the characters and their uninteresting, sheltered-people problems. Read Jane Austen instead.

    Sweet story - hard to read

    The conversion to the nook was not good. Had to guess at a lot of words.

    Great story

    Would have given this 4 stars but some parts of the book are hard to read because of spelling and other mistakes. What ever happened to reading what you typed?... The mistakes are really easy to see if you would have scaned the typed page. I dont know how this many mistakes could have happened gee use spell check.

    My favorite Grace Livingston Hill.!!!

    I also love Crimson Roses, Duskin, and The Girl From Montana. Lone Point, Not Under the Law, The Red Signal, The Mystery of Mary, The Obsession of Victoria Gracen, and Because of Syephen are also very good books.

    One of Hill's best!!!

    I read this book when I was much younger. It inspired me then and it does now. A sweet romance with adventure thrown in. Not a boring read!

    EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I read this years ago and have a library full of her books. My Mom and I read them all the time. The Enchanted Barn and Marcia Schyler were 2 of my favorites!! It's a great clean story! It is very predictable; but so enjoyable!! I was so glad to find so many of them for my Nook and for either free or for a dollar or less!!

    Highly Recommend

    This is a wonderful book. Kate is awful and leaves David alone on their wedding day. Marcia is Kate's younger sister and their father & step-mother give Marcia as a stand in bride. David tells her he will treat her as his sister. But throughout the book Marcia's self-sacrificing ways come to light and in the end David realizes Kate is awful, self-absorbed and he and Marcia fall in love and "live happily ever after".
