About 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.

Good Christian romance written way before political correctness. Made me smile made me pray to be a better person and witness. Sweet yet no compromising of values.

I liked this one, especially having read it around Christmas. It was wonderful to read about the relationship between two people who are Christians. It contains a bit of mystery along with adventure and romance. All in all, a good read.

Completely unrealistic.

The story is perhaps a bit too sweet for my taste, as it's unrealistic. How is Gregory going to keep up his mission with out any way to generate new income? It was also dated in that it occurred in a time period when only fallen women wore any make-up at all. If you can get past that, the story is compelling and sweet in an old fashioned way. It's also interesting from a historical perspective to see how upstanding christians behaved in the past. (Or at least how the author thought they behaved). I would hope current christians would be a bit less judgemental and more loving toward Alice, as she could certainly never be drawn closer to God with those attitudes which caused others in the story to reject her on sight in the way that the characters in this story did. Yes, Alice brings some of it on herself with her selfish and out of line behavior. We even learn that she was raised right and with religious instruction, so some of it is her own willful behavior causing problems. Yet, Gregory received the same Sunday school instruction as Alice as a child, but he doesn't truly come to follow the way until after he has private conversation with his new friend, Steele. Alice hasn't had that advantage yet, and listening to Steele read one bible story is not the same. Perhaps in time the passage she heard will work on her heart, with God's help. I felt more kindness and less treating her like pariah would have touched Alice's heart quicker, as just inviting someone in the building is not the same as inviting them truly in to share the joy of God you have in your heart. It's not just the message; it's how the message is delivered. Love is the key. The message would be rejected less often if love that meets the recipient where they are in life, and not where you think they should be, was the motivating factor behind the witnessing.

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a Grace Livingston Hill book! I am so glad they are making a comeback. I really enjoyed this wonderful Christmas story. The head nurse on the hospital floor was a bit arrogant and took things into her own hands a bit too soon. Greg brought Margaret into the hospital and paid her entire bill, setting her room up as a memorial to give poor people a nice room for free while in the hospital. When Margaret found out, she really made an idiot of herself. But Greg soon set her straight! This well written story is full of realistic characters that you will grow to love, and Grace Livingston Hill gives readers a heartwarming story to read during the Christmas Holidays. Pick up your copy now, so you will have it when the holiday season gets here! I received this book from the publisher Barbour Books to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review.
