Editorial Reviews

Book Bargains and Previews - Allie B.

This book is part of Grace Livingston Hill's classic "Love Endures" series, updated to each today's women. The storyline is interesting and takes many twists and turns. The author draws you into the story and keeps you there waiting for the next twist. But as with all of Hills, books, there is more. She writes her books with a deep message and many life lessons so we have much to learn here and apply to our own lives. It is a little book, but packs a big punch.
Kingdom Airwaves - Victor Gentile

“Not Under the Law” is a suspenseful thriller 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.

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.

    A Crime Witness On The Run From The Criminals

    Grace Livingston Hill in her new book, “Not Under The Law” Book Eleven in the Love Endures series published by Barbour Publishing, Inc. takes us into the life of Joyce Radway.

    From the back cover: “She was paralyzed with fear…Who knew what desperate criminals these might be? Grave robbers would not hesitate to dig a new grave.”

    In a moment of frustration, Joyce Radway walks out on her cousins, determined never to return and give into their selfish demands that she serve them rather than follow her dream of becoming a teacher. But in her haste to leave town, Joyce unwittingly stumbles on some men out to cover up their actions in a cemetery plot.

    Joyce is both stunned and afraid—especially when she recognizes her childhood friend among the men—but she narrowly escapes, unaware that as she builds her new life she’s being followed.

    Ruthless and swarthy, Tyke is out to silence the only witness to his crime. His partner, Darcy, is out to silence the guilt that plagues his heart. As their determined searches bring them closer and closer to Joyce, will God’s law protect her against men who are a law unto themselves?

    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 just anything she wanted to write stories of faith. Nothing blows up, there are no car chases and the future of the world is not in jeopardy yet “Not Under the Law” is very exciting. Originally written in 1934 “Not Under the Law” is a wonderful story of how God can take our circumstances and change them to the better. Joyce Radway has very bad luck. Not only does she witness a crime but the they see her and know who she is. Now they are out to hunt her down and eliminate her as the only witness even though she is trying to start a new life for herself. The only one who is really going to help her get out of this is God. How this story is all going to work out is what makes for really delightful reading. I think “Not Under the Law” is a suspenseful thriller 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.

    A good story that rings true despite the distance in time from when it was first written. Themes of greed, sloth, loyalty, and truth in a face paced story that keeps your attention throughout.

    Joyce's beloved aunt has died, leaving her with her cousin &

    Joyce's beloved aunt has died, leaving her with her cousin & his wife who treat her as little more than a maid. When they refuse to let her have some time during the day to take her examinations to become a teacher, over-worked and gentle Joyce has reached her limits -- and walks out, with nothing but her purse and the clothes on her back. And then her adventures begin, including eluding bootleggers at work in a local graveyard. She catches trains to a new town, finds a place to live. I can't help loving the description of her little house and how she fixes it up. Joyce cannot bring herself to be in contact with her cousins or her old town, until she learns an old friend is being charged with a crime that only she can prove him innocent of. Through the story of Joyce's new life, are stories of how she visits local churches, and finds churches that preach salvation through works & humanism, and a simple church that preaches the simple faith of the Bible, that she learned as a girl from her Aunt. I just love the ending -- but you will have to read it yourself to find out what happens. This is a wonderful story, and highly recommended.
