Marcia Schuyler

Grace Livingston Hill

Book Overview: 

A compelling love triangle. Marcia is young & sweet. Her older sister Kate is vain & selfish. Marcia deeply admires the man that Kate is to marry: handsome & respected David Spafford. But on the eve of the wedding, Kate elopes with another man. Marcia is there when the note is found...the note that effectively breaks David's heart. Out of pity for his situation, Marcia offers to take Kate's place, in order to save David from humiliation. She grows in love for him, all the while aware that he's still grieving for his lost Kate. What will happen when Kate returns, fully intending to get David back? Will Marcia have the strength to fight for the man she now loves?

Book Excerpt: 
. . ., stood upon the broad low step ready to fling posies before the bride as she stepped into the coach.

The little boys, to whom a wedding merely meant a delightful increase of opportunities, stood behind a pillar munching cake, more of which protruded from their bulging pockets.

Marcia, with a lump in her throat that threatened tears, slipped behind the people, caught the two little step-brothers in her arms and smothered them with kisses, amid their loud protestations and the laughter of those who stood about. But [pg 76] the little skirmish had served to hide the tears, and the bride came back most decorously to where her stepmother stood awaiting her with a smile of complacent—almost completed—duty upon her face. She wore the sense of having carried off a trying situation in a most creditable manner, and she knew she had won the respect and awe of every matron present thereby. That was a great deal to Madam Schuyler.

Marcia Schuyler revolves around Marcia and her sister Kate and their relationship with David Spafford. The story begins a few days before Kate is to wed David. Marcia sees David's worth and rejoices in her sister's good fortune, but Kate herself finds David too staid and moralising. As a result,...more

If you have never read any of Ms.Hill's novels, I would like to recommend this one as a good start. She wrote over 100 novels along the lines of Louisa May Alcott, Lucy Maud Montgomery, and Laura Ingalls Wilder. Simple stories, romantic, heart warming. What's not to like? They provide a short, ea...more

This is my third time to read Marcia Schuyler. The first time, I loved it. The second time, I merely liked it. The third time around, I just loved it again. The plot is unusual in a way. Marcia Schuyler was supposed to be a bridesmaid for her sister, instead she became the bride and married her s...more

This book was so fascinating that I could hardly put it down or stop thinking about it. I read it as fast as I could because I just *had* to know the ending! The story revolves around 3 people whose lives are forever changed the day of a wedding. I can't say more without exposing the main theme o...more

When I was younger, we would go visit my great-aunt during the summers. She lived in this bitty town in nowhere-southern Indiana. She talked non-stop, called everyone by their first and middle names together, set her thermostat at 60 degrees, and cooked with real butter and cream. She told everyo...more

This book, written in 1908, was a surprise to me concerning the "soap opera" content. Jealous women, beguiled men...more

I cannot begin to explain how much I loved reading this book. I will confess, the title seemed so boring and unromantic, but I like Grace's writing style so I decided to go ahead with it. Also, I wanted to read Miranda, but it's the third book in the trilogy and this is the first. I was very plea...more

Different than usual for this author...but still enjoyable.

When you come across Grace Livingston Hill for the first time, you get the impression that she is a writer of sweet, romantic, old fashioned fiction - which is true on one level. But she has a surprising talent for creating nasty characters! I mean she comes up with some real pieces of work... An...more

I probably would not re-visit this author; the writing style meanders along with many ponderings and descriptions and I was always ready to get back to the story. It's quite romantic (not my favorite) but a nice story of Marcia finding love without Kate. There's deception and twists but still wit...more
