unwilling guest

(2.5 stars)

Nice story the reader sings well but has an unnatural modulation when reading that is tiring.

This is a very good read!

(5 stars)

This book has a wonderful weaving story that is just the kind of thing that the author is known for! I love the female characters that are so well written and highlighted! It is also a book that every Christian should read. It helps you see your own faith and how you display it to other people in a new light. It has certainly given me food for thought and also helped me make some decisions on different ways I will approach those who do not know Christ. I'm going through all the Grace Livingston Hill books I can find! She is a fabulous author and worth listening to some of the volunteer readers who aren't quite as proficient as people who get paid to do this! I appreciate them all and it hasn't kept me from loving these books!

A beautiful story!

(5 stars)

Stick with this story! Though many may find this book to seem outdated due to the era it was written, or write it off as too pointedly religious, it still captures the inner workings of human behavior, thinking, and moral tendencies. All of this is woven together wonderfully and through many twists and turns to present a love story involving personal redemption and changed outlooks. Very refreshing and inspirational in its timelessness! Like other reviews, I only wish the ending hadn't been so abrupt.

A wonderful story

I can't believe it took me so long to listen to this story. I like stories that interest me right off the start. For some reason this one did not, but I continued to listen and was very glad I did. As the story unfolded, I began to grow fonder of the story and it's characters. The reader did a great job as well. It's definitely a book to listen and see how God speaks to our hearts.

God works in mysterious ways...

(5 stars)

This has been different than any other Grace Livingston Hill book I have read. Generally before the first chapter is over one knows without a doubt who Prince Charming will be but this time I wasn’t quite so sure because he always kept disappearing and never declared his love for her. A nice read!


(5 stars)

This is one of Grace's better books! I enjoyed it so much. The characters thoughts and emotions were so real to life. I loved the young boy that was in Allison's Sunday school class. I was laughing and crying while I listened to this book!

Very enjoyable!

I wonder at the standards displayed by the young people in this book. If their upbringing were repeated today, it would be an astonishing thing. Purity is exalted instead of being derided. A great book for young people, and old ones like me!
