This isn't the edition I read, but I LOVE the cover art. Again, I just needed something relaxing. This was a lot of fun. Our heroine, young schoolmarm-to-be, gets off the train accidentally at a water stop, and is stranded in the middle of the Arizona wilds in the early days of statehood. Only in a Hill novel would such a scenario lead to her discovering God's man, er, God's will for her life. Expected features: A sort of altar call in prose; romance guided by the hand of God; painful use of dia...more
I got this on my Kindle for $0.00 and loved the sweet and wholesome romance. The beginning is priceless as the heroine gets off her train accidently in the middle of the Arizona desert and is rescued by the cowboy hero. The romance is beautiful, patient, and strong. The side characters are well-developed and add such character and warmth to the the whole story. There was neither profanity nor overt sexuality and I appreciated that.

This was another quick read. It was fun reading a book that was published in 1916. The story takes place in Arizona where a young woman has taken her first teaching assignment. She has one student that hates her, another student that is the kind of student a teacher would dream about. At the beginning of the book she is stuck out in the middle of no where at night accidently. Towards the end of the book you think about a story that very little children are told and how the story gets the childre...more
I really enjoyed this book. While this novel isn't epic or anything, it is a truly enjoyable story, great characters and I love how the author can incorporate true Christian faith (and struggle) in a strong but not awkward way. It flows naturally into the story, and into the character's lives as they have their faith journeys alongside one another. The heroine draws people to be more of who they were created to be by her love for them and her desire to see God's glory through them. She draws men...more

Sweet story!

A sweet love story. Full of suspense. Great romance for young children to begin with. Grace Livingston Hill has a way to keep her audience captivated.v
A typical GLH book with a Christian message and a simple plot. Very light reading with a happy ending guaranteed.

Keep in mind, I read this a long time ago, but at the time I thought it was one of the best of Grace L. Hill's novels. I don't remember much about it.
I love the way these books tie together. Some of the characters in this book are the main characters in Man in the Desert. Great!
Sweet book. I like the writing style of GLH. I especially liked her books Story of a Whim and The Witness.
