Throwback Thursdays-Grace Livingston Hill

Ok, so I opted to continue with my throwback theme, even during Christmas. I can honestly say that without Joanne Long, I never would have known about Grace Livingston Hill. Joanne introduced me to her when I was first a believer, probably trying to help me fill my mind with good stuff and not V.C. Andrews.
I can remember riding my bike to Joanne's house and borrowing almost every book she had by Grace. It was so much fun to sit and read and get lost in a sweet story. And believe me, her stories were really sweet! I loved each and every one I read.
I may very well have read every book every published by this amazing author. I don't know. Joanne had quite a collection going. Whatever she had, I read!
Joanne, thanks for introducing me to good reading material! I am very grateful to you for showing me how to fill my mind with good, Godly fiction! It's really helped me as I write!
So, in honor of Grace Livingston Hill, here's a blurb about The Christmas Bride:

Now a wealthy man, Greg Sterling heads back east to make a name for himself. But on his first day home, he stumbles on a down-and-out young woman in desperate need of his help. Then just as quickly as she appeared, Margaret McLaren vanishes without a trace. As several days of searching come up empty-handed, old flame Alice Blair saunters into Greg’s world, vying to win his heart—and his pocketbook. But will her coquettishness keep Greg from finding his true love?

  1. I haven't read anything by this author, but I must, I see. Your memory of this is wonderful. When I first made my commitment as a Christian to stop reading secular fiction and instead only read books written by Christian authors with the kind of messages and stories that would be uplifting, I too had one special author I found and read everything I could. Now, thankfully I've found so many wonderful Christian authors. Blessings & Merry Christmas, Susan Fryman
