    If you have never read any of MsHill'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 read a nice break when one is needed

    35 starsAn 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 to really focus on the DavidMarcia romance and a lot of that ended up rushed as a result So I couldn’t call it than good but I still enjoyed it

    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 how to do everything For entertainment we would drive around to check on how the corn was doing or out to the old farm in Paxton or down to Vincennes to see the new prison When the drive was over there would still be 6 12 days of visit left to fill and all that was left was walking to the Walmart and reading through her bookcase She had the most moral selection of literature including dozens of novels by Grace Livingston Hill that had belonged to her mother I used to average about three a day lying on the floor in the study while the air conditioner blasted and my great aunt told my mother the best way to do laundryThis novel was always one of my favorites because it wasn't a contemporary kind of hysterical since even her contemporary novels now read like the fustiest of period pieces Anyway being set in the early 1830s seemed like a reasonable excuse for being so unbelieveably wholesomeAs usual my favorite parts are the details clothes food houses The characters are over the top dastardly cad Harry Temple saintly younger sister Marcia brazen hussy Kate you get the idea My favorite line describes our hero His hands were white and firm the fingers long and shapely the hands of a brain worker Which has to be the least attractive compliment ever But the book reminds me of my great aunt who made the best mashed potatoes and my mother who used to say that if the hero wanted his marriage to succeed he would stop calling his wife child not her idea of a successful endearment and who had read through my great aunt's bookcase during the summers when she was a girl

    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 she elopes with another man the night before the wedding On the morning of the wedding the Schuyler family discovers Kate's note explaining what she has done and Mr Schuyler disgraced by his daughter's betrayal offers his younger daughter Marcia to David as recompense Marcia seeing David's heartbreak and eager to help him avoid the embarrassment of returning home without the bride he came to fetch agrees as does David Marcia is seventeen but described as a child just approaching womanhood David is twenty seven so the difference in their ages is a little uncomfortable although that kind of age difference was common in romances of oldMarcia and David are married by chapter six and the rest of the book chronicles the trials of their marriage Marcia moving away and dealing with David's interfering aunts David dealing with his broken heart and both dealing with the fallout of swapping one bride for another and the romance as they eventually find each other It's not a story that contains many surprises it's a romance after all and we know where it's headed but the journey is an enjoyable one My biggest criticisms of the book would be the one dimensional characters the good characters Marcia and David are impossibly good; Marcia especially never puts a foot wrong is admired by all who see her and practically has woodland characters following her and singing to her like some animated Disney heroine; and the bad characters are saturated with evil Kate for instance and her cohort Harry Temple who plot to ruin Marcia to revenge themselves on David and the overwrought prose I also felt there were certain class distinctions that grated on my modern sensibilities for instance lower class characters are given dialect even in written letters and the third act drags a bit as characters achieve realizations we thought they'd reached long ago or reach the same conclusion over and overThe story takes place in the 1830s and one subplot revolves around the development of a steam railway in Albany NY David is a journalist with his own small town newspaper but somehow is involved in making the dream of a steam railway a reality Hill is rather vague on how a journalist is involved in making the railway happen but it is a convenient plot device to get David out of town about halfway through the novel I enjoyed the historical aspects of the story Hill does a good job of recreating the era and some details were fascinating For instance at an evening gathering to celebrate David and Marcia's wedding we're told They served cake and raspberry vinegar then and a little while after everybody went home Do you suppose they drank the vinegar? Or dipped the cake in it? And was that a well known signal for everyone to go home? It's an intriguing uestionOverall I liked the book It held my attention and I wanted to keep reading it I never felt like I was slogging through it and I definitely want to read the remaining two books in the Miranda trilogy Phoebe Deane and Miranda

    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 without exposing the main theme of the story the main problem to be dealt with I found it very captivating It's not necessarily a happy read for a good chunk of the book It can be uite heartbreaking and emotionally taxing as you long to see right prevail and redemption and happiness and true love win It is so beautiful to watch that unfold but a little heartbreaking at the same time There are scoundrels in the book who plot mischievous things and serve to keep you on the edge of your seat holding your breath for the outcome In the end though it was very sad at times I found the story to be uite beautiful and satisfying I would definitely read it again

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

    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 And in this book she puts our poor heroine in a pretty outlandish situation due to the actions of one of those nasty people which at first strikes you as somewhat absurd But once you get past that it turns into a fascinating read she manages to get to the happy ending that at first you feel like is basically impossible I will be reading of GLH's books there is than meets the eye when it comes to her writing
