The Honor Girl by Grace Livingston Hill

Meet Elsie Hathaway, a girl on the cusp of adulthood in the 1920s, who begins to question the direction of her life when she compares the privileges she received being raised by her aunt to the struggles her widowed father and motherless brothers have had to endure in her absence. Then the words of a handsome stranger compel Elsie to make changes that will earn his respect. Can she find herself worthy of honor?

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.

The main character, Elsie, has been living a life of privilege with her aunt and uncle since the death of her mother. Her father and brothers are virtual strangers. Popular and accomplished, Elise is shocked to overhear a criticism of herself. The implication being that yes, she's a nice person, but who would she really be if the cares of life had not already been smoothed away for her. The next day on a long overdue visit to her father and brothers' home, which she has deliberately timed to avoid seeing them, she discovers that the family home has become dirty and unkempt; her family living in squalor. Rumors of her father's drinking and her brothers rough lifestyle can no longer be ignored. The heart of the story centers on what will Elsie do? Can she go back to her perfect life with her aunt and uncle, or will she take on the responsibility of her family? It's a fascinating read that has lost nothing since it was first published decades ago. Personally, I find Grace Livingston Hill's characters inspiring and a real comfort.

After her mother's death, Elsie is living the good life at her aunt and uncle's house without so much as a thought about the father and brothers she left behind. While making a visit home to retrieve an item she left behind, she is struck by the disorder in the household and suddenly realizes how much she is needed as a sister and a daughter. A true makeover story full of hope and faith, but saccharine sweet by today's standards.
