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 sees David's worth and rejoices in her sister's good fortune, but Kate herself finds David too staid and moralising. As a result, she

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, easy

An enjoyable story about a young wife in the early 1800s. It was a clean marriage-of-convenience tale set on the early days of rail travel.

There were so many antagonists that I grew weary of conflict after conflict. I felt like it really overshadowed a sweet little romance and made it hard

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 of t

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 everyone

Written in about 1920. Set in 1830, when New York got its first steam engine train. I didn’t much enjoy this book. It felt long, slow, and boring. The hero was just too engrossed in his own wounded heartbreak and the heroine was too long suffering. The sister, Kate, was just over-the-top evil. I did

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

Ehhhh, too many evil women.

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