This is a sweet book by G.L. Hill. A college girl is enjoying her time at college learning to be an interior decorator. She feels important to her friends there, and looks forward to an exciting career.

Her dreams are dashed when she gets a lettter from her father, telling her that things have fallen apart financially for him, and the stress has created health problems for her mother. She has to come home because there is no more money for college, and she must also take care of the family while

This book was so much fun. I always love reading the books written by Grace Livingston Hill, and every one of them keep me up till all hours of the night ... the whole time I’m telling myself I need to go to bed, but dying to read more of the story.

What I loved: I loved the way Cornelia grew from being a pouting, self-centered, selfish young lady to a caring, selfless, loving person who cared about family more than anything else. I also enjoyed the way she creatively redecorated their run-down,
I can't discern if I enjoyed this book so much because it was an utter surprise or just because it is that good. I picked it up on a trade shelf at an airport in Centralia, Washington because I thought the cover was beautiful. Sometimes you can judge a book by it's cover I suppose. It did get lengthy at times, but instead of wanting to skip ahead, I found myself enjoying the poetic steady writing. I found it uplifting and inspiring and sweet, old fashioned, romantic, and full of a romp of an adv ...more

An innocent, old-fashioned romance written by my great-great-grandma.
I believe this is one of my favorite of Mrs. Hill's novels. It is less a romance than a sweet tale of a young woman who must give up her last few months at college to help out at home when her mother is ill. At first she is depressed by the run-down home that her family had to move into, but as she realizes her selfishness, she puts her all into improving the place and being a good influence on her siblings. It kept me quite riveted though it is a simple enough story. It made me ashamed of my la ...more

Enjoyable and uplifting. I wonder why so many words are necessary for a review. I would do more reviews if I could just rate it.
I found this book recently, one of my favorite authors, and realized I'd never read it. It didn't look as appealing as the others, but I ended up loving it!

It was pretty old-fashioned, having been written in 1924, but for the most part I sure love the morals of those days, and I appreciated the character development of this story.

The main message of the story was "Love them back." The main character's brother has become seemingly morally lost, and needed the love of his family, and their depend

Sweet story of a girl who leaves college to help her family, interior decorating and romance/protégés.

Love this book! So sweet!
I was given this book by my great-grandmother and I ended up enjoying it much more than I thought I would. The author is fabulous at weaving real-life worries in with lovely imagery and a plot that keeps you turning pages! Would definitely recommend!!
These few books that I have read by Hill are wonderful in seeing just what tremendous influence women can have in the world.
Reminds me somewhat of another favorite for re-reading, EMILY OF DEEP VALLEY by Maud Hart Lovelace.
