I have a special spot in my heart for Grace Livingston Hill books. My grandmother loved scouring flea markets and book barns for copies of her books. Before my grandma died, I believe she collected FIVE full sets of GLH books!
I have read many of them, but not all, and I have enjoyed seeing them becoming available for my Kindle.
Thanks to NetGalley, I was able to read The Substitute Guest, a tender story set around Christmastime, making for a warm, cozy read in these fall and winter months. The Substitute Guest clearly shows the difference between a family who loves and follows the Lord and the lost and lonely world. Their shining testimony is what makes a seeking young lawyer, stranded in the snow on Christmas, see his own need for Christ and the change He makes in our life when we receive Him.
Although The Substitute Guest was written over 60 years ago and some of the language, convictions, and Biblical truth will be considered 'dated' and 'old-fashioned' by some, I found the story refreshingly honest and sweet.
