I love Grace Livingston Hill and this book was true to the others. It is a wonderful book. Very clearly talks about the Lord and being a Christian.

I am so glad I found Grace's book when I was first saved 1973. she has characters who are committed to the Lord.
They have trails and don't do everything right but they always go back to living to glory God. I love the song she quotes. The house hold hints (cooking, clothing and decorating and the insight into having a daily relationship with God. They are old fashioned in some ways but the core of the conflict is still faced by Christians today. Treat yourself to a Grace Livingston Hill book!

Although I did find the story line just a bit too perfect, I do enjoy Grace Livingston Hill's books. I love the way she weaves the gospel message into her books and comes up with a wonderful story to hold your interest and warm your heart. This Christmas book is one you will enjoy!

This story was a complete surprise. Dealing with a young man who after spending time on his own in the wilderness, returns to civilization. He finds that many people around him are destitute as so many are these days. Without revealing the story line, I would just say that it was difficult to put the book down as there were so many hopes for a good outcome. This is a book that will give you a lift and hope for the future.

Grace Livingston Hill in her new book, “The Christmas Bride” Book Nine in the Love Endures series published by Barbour Publishing, Inc. takes us into the life of Greg Sterling.
From the back cover: “His heart sank more and more over the ghastly thought that perhaps he should never find her again…”
Greg Sterling spent the last ten years out West trying to eke out a living on rough, unforgiving land…until he discovered oil and his fortune was made. With his recently acquired wealth to his name, Greg heads back East hoping to prove his worth among those who once doubted his potential.
But only hours after arriving, Greg sees a young woman collapse on a park bench and rushes to her side. There’s no doubt that Margaret McLaren needs someone’s help–his help. But just as quickly and unexpectedly as she appeared in his life, Margaret vanishes without a trace. Now Greg will do anything to find her again.
Just as Greg’s search comes up empty-handed, old flame Alice Blair sets out to rekindle their relationship. Will it keep Greg from finding his true love?
When Grace Livingston Hill’s first husband died he left her with two young daughters to raise. In an effort to support her family she turned to writing. However, Ms. Hill just didn’t want to write anything she wanted to write stories of faith. Nothing blows up, there are no car chases and the future of the world is not in jeopardy yet “The Christmas Bride” is very exciting. Originally written in 1934 “The Christmas Bride” is a wonderful story of how God can take our circumstances and change them to the better. Greg Sterling left town because the townspeople thought he was worthless. Now wealthy he has returned to prove them wrong. Then he meets Margaret, who vanishes on him. As he tries to find her his old flame resurfaces. However his only interest is in Margaret. I think “The Christmas Bride” is an exciting story and a wonderful romance that will keep you reading as to what happens next. Ms. Hill knows how to tell a great story and while it may be old it still is a powerful story.
