Book Excerpt: 
. . .the cattle, the sound of night-birds, came now and again from the distance; but still the girl slept on. The moon rose full and round, shining with flickering light through the cottonwoods; and the girl stirred in a dream and thought some one was pursuing her, but slept on again. Then out through the night rang a vivid human voice, "Hello! Hello!" The horse roused from his sleep, and stamped his feet nervously, twitching at his bridle; but the relaxed hand that lay across the leather strap did not quicken, and the girl slept on. The horse listened, and thought he heard a sound good to his ear. He neighed, and neighed again; but the girl slept on.

The first ray of the rising sun at last shot through the gray of dawning, and touched the girl full in the face as it slid under the branches of her sheltering tree. The light brought her acutely to her senses. Before she opened her eyes she seemed to be keenly and painfully aware of much that had gone on during her slee. . . Read More

Way heavier on the moralizing and religion than The Enchanted Barn, but there's a happy ending so let's be honest, I liked it.

The Girl from Montana by Grace Livingston Hill (1908) was bought at an Amish bookstore in Berlin, OH. I picked it up while my husband was browsing in an Amish furniture store, and literally did not want to put it down, so I bought itand finished it in the same day.
It is a refreshing, well-writt...more

Pulp fiction of a very high order. Once you accept the premise that "the girl," whose name isn't revealed until about halfway through the book, has lost all five members of her immediate family one-by-one, that she has no friends, and that she's currently under threat of rape by four of her late...more

Greatest Read for Living

I've been reading Grace Livingston Hill for over 50 years. This book is refreshing and beautifully written, spreading the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Her books are a testament on how you should live you you life whether you are 15 or 65. Her books influenced my life...more

A great re-read ... although it's probably altogether a preposterous story, the "fairy-tale" in it is enough to keep my interest. Being a very easy read made it a good one for an especially hectic time in my life.

Elizabeth Bailey has lost everyone she loves. Her parents and siblings have all died, and now her last brother has been murdered. When the murderer wants to claim Elizabeth for himself, she goes on the run from Montana to the East to find her long-lost relatives. Along the way, she runs into Geor...more

A highly improbable yet enjoyable story

Poor little mountain girl, in her mid to late teens, gradually loses her whole family to tragic deaths, and is compelled to run for her life from the shady gang of men responsible for her last remaining brother's murder. They track her through the wilderness of Montana, as she and her horse hide...more

This book pulled me in from the start. It's a girl on an adventure and becomes a bit of a missionary story (fair warning given, to those of you who don't like such.). The adventure is epic in scope, but yet downplayed at the same time; Elizabeth does not think much of riding horseback from Montan...more

The book that got me hooked on reading.

This is the first book that grabbed my imagination at age of 9 and from this book my love of reading was found. God is our refuge and His mercy and love abound in this story.
