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, "The White Flower" Book Twelve in the Love Endures series published by Barbour Publishing, Inc. takes us into the life of Rachel Rainsford. From the back cover: "It was her last chance. She must cast all caution to the winds and get away." Following the death of her beloved father, Rachel Rainsford hastily accepts a position as companion to an elderly lady and boards a train headed west. But as high hopes mix with growing fear, Rachel receives a startling note from a fellow passenger... When Chan Prescott, a former student of Rachel's father, overhears a boastful conversation between two men, he knows he must do something-everything-to help Rachel. She is part of a dastardly scheme to sell her as a companion to a corrupt Chicago businessman. So Chan takes a chance and hopes Rachel will follow his lead. Her destiny sealed, Rachel isn't sure she can trust a stranger but has nowhere else to turn. With the criminals in close pursuit, the two begin a daring escape-one that will take more than each other to see them through. 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. Ms. Hill also knew how to write very exciting adventure thrillers. Originally written in 1927 "The White Flower" is a wonderful story of how God can take our circumstances and change them to the better. Rachel Rainsford is taking a train across country to take a job to support herself. While she is sitting on the train she is given a note that there is a plot to abduct her and sell her as a slave to a wealthy businessman. She doesn't know her abductors nor does she know her rescuer but she needs to trust herself to a complete stranger to come out of this dangerous situation. How this story is all going to work out is what makes for really delightful reading. I think "The White Flower" is a suspenseful thriller and a wonderful romance that will keep you flipping pages as fast as you can read them to find out what happens next. Ms. Hill knows how to tell a great story and this may be her best yet. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Barbour Publishing, Inc.

It starts out interestingly enough but then it just goes on and on and on and it isn' t believable. Why wouldn't they just go to the police. There just is no reason that they would keep running and running when they could just go to the police. It wasn't believable

Her eyes are blue with gold streaks in them. Her feeth and claws are deathly sharp, and her claws are gold. Powers...Can turn herself or things into fire Mother...? Father...? Siblings...Raven~brother, dead Mate...Really? Im a pup! Pups...Are you stupid? History...Well, ill try to tell you... Vally was just born. She lay quietly on a bed of moss, batting at her mother. Then someone snarled at the door. Their mother stood up and went to the entrance. "Stay here Vally and Raven, ill be right back." The two pups waited patiently for hours, then days, then weeks. Vally stayed in while Raven went out. When she went out, she saw her mothers and Ravens bodies on the ground, covered in blood. A strong wolf came up to her and tried to bite her. But Vally, out of rage and anger, bit his neck while clawing his stomach. The wolf pulled back, and she darted back and forth, nipping his sides. Then she jumped on his back and sank her teeth into his skin. The wolf fell, while Vally was left alone. Then she felt heat. The whole area was on fire! Vally tried to run, but couldnt. She was consumed by the flames. But she felt herself rising. She walked out of the fire, unharmed. She stumbled along until she found this place... Other...Hmmm...well...nothing much
