Bliss


(5 stars)

Yet another wonderful novel by Grace Livingston Hill, probably my favourite. I can't get enough of her books - this is the third in 2 weeks. I particularly love the references to God, and the encouraging testimony throughout. The Bible verses were so comforting. It makes me long for a godly romance too. Gail did a great job, again, at reading. I love her voice - wish she did more readings! All in all, it was perfect. I wish it was many, many hours longer.

This was an adventurous romance novel for Christian women to enjoy as it is flowery in speech. It was a bit difficult at times to get around the Brooklyn accent of the reader. Over all, the story was good and demonstrated strength of character.

Nice story

I listened to this twice and enjoyed it both times. God can hide us in times of need.

Wonderful


(4.5 stars)

I really enjoyed listening to this. I love the how the main character is different to most women being portrayed in that time period. I do love classic stories with more simple characters. But Elizabeth’s personality was so fun. I also love the dialogue between Elizabeth and George. It was very personal and you got to learn a lot more about the characters for who they really are. Gail Mattern did a great job at capturing the different characters’ voices. Elizabeth’s journey with God and her new outlook on faith was one of my favorite parts.This is definitely one of my favorite books now.

(5 stars)

"The Girl from Montana" is one of those books i have downloaded so that I may "drop in to visit old friends." Gail Mattern's voice lends 🥰 perfectly! Elizabeth's Rector, "The Doctor" wrote a book which changed her life. She in turn gives it to Richard in hopes that he too will meet, "My Best Friend". I found the book! It's on Gutebooks- I'll edit this of I can find the audio book as well: "My Best Friend: Being Six Meditations for the Quiet Hour" Floyd Williams 1850-1932 Tomkins His Bio: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floyd_W._Tomkins The Book: https://books.google.com/books/about/My_Best_Friend.html?id=598VAAAAYAAJ#v=onepage&q&f=false


(3 stars)

The Girl from Montana is filled with adventure, love, and time tested truths. This is one of my favorite books written by Grace Livingston Hill. Although I can see a similarity between Grace’s books and her Aunt Isabella Alden’s books, I feel as if Grace’s writing style is superior. Grace’s and Isabella’s family were also hard-core temperance people, and so Isabella’s books are highly instilled with those beliefs whereas in Grace’s books you can still find those ideas but in a less irritating way.

sweet read religious throughout


(4 stars)

very good job done by the volunteer reader, thank you! a clean romance novel. very sweet sounding. you just want to smack the main characters because they just keep getting in there own way for finding love with each other. you find yourself going "oh no! you forgot to tell him____." the book talks a lot about god, faith, and saving power. not as clever a thriller as the authors other books.

loved the narrator...this is the second book I have listened to that she has read. ' The Enchanted Barn' is another one that was read with animated voices of the characters that came alive in the story. The author Grace Livingston Hill fills ones heart with joy of a world that is sadly lacking in the one we live in today
