Grace Livingston Hill's name and her books are probably unknown to most young readers today. She was a prolific writer of over 100 novels in the early 20th century, most with a Christian theme, most involving young women with their struggles and loves through life. Some of her books are more "preach

This wonderful Christian romance takes place in the years surrounding the Boxer Rebellion in China. It starts out with a wealthy young socialite being made to stay at her aunt's house in a small quaint village while her father is away on business. She absolutely does not want to be there, and makes

Another religious romantic novel by Grace Livingston Hill, "An Unwilling Guest" is wonderful hopeful read about love and serving Christ. Two different families in so many ways, can they find love?

Story in short- Evelyn is a rich, spoiled young lady who cares only for her own happiness, this all cha

A very old book (1902)with noticeable "non-politically correct" aspersions cast on Asians, and other "heathens" not yet civilized by becoming Christians. A bit sappy, but I think that comes with the age of the book.

"Fluffy" as her books are, I must admit that I like G.L.H.'s books. They're all simply written, fairly wholesome, just kind of "light" reading.

I don't like that in many, many of her books the couple is composed of one believer and one non-believer with the non-believer being led to Christ by their
