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.

Hott Synopsis: Bitter and disillusioned Rodney Graeme returns home from war to spend some much needed time with his family. War is a funny thing. It caused Rodney to have a wonderful fully trusting relationship with the Father. It also caused Rodney to become bitter about the one he thought he loved. The one who decided to find a husband worth more money while Rodney was serving our country. Now he’s back and she wants to pick up where they left off. But is it only memories she’s hoping to unearth or is it something more devious? Hott Review: Oddly enough this is the first time I’ve read this book. I’ve owned it for more than ten years but never actually read it. In some ways I’m glad that I waited. This book has a very strong message and is extremely pointed. I love Mrs. Hill’s writing style and felt like I was part of the story so I sometimes took things more to heart. It amazing to me (and proves that Mrs. Hill was a Godly writer) that each thing that was in that book felt like it could be happening as I was reading. I believe that this is a good book for someone who is at a precipice in their faith or anyone who would like to be closer to The Lord.

Possibly my favorite Hill book. I love stories about WWII & having a family trusting in God & handling their problems in such graceful ways during that trying time is wonderful. A family & setting I like to visit often!

As unethical or unorthodox as many Grace Livingston Hill books were perceived as in her early days, they were actually books to teach a lesson, and 'Girl To Come Home To' was no different. It's a book of morals, virtues, wanton greed and selfishness, but in the end, good comes out of it since good mostly, like truth, prevails.
