Radiant Lit - Bonita Ledzius

Grace Livingston Hill weaves a timeless tale that any parent would find helpful in assessing where their own family stands and the need for the teaching of Biblical truths to our children. The characters leap from the book with such strength that I literally found myself speaking to them about their behavior, or chiding them for their blindness to the truth.

The author’s setting descriptions are so vivid you could feel the cold wrapping around you, dragging you into the world of wintry Vermont in the 1920’s. Her character descriptions through the dialogue and their actions really brought them to life. All in all, the writing in this book is better than any other book I’ve read by Grace Livingston Hill.

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.
