    1. Thornton Bellingham John Worth Hmm, which is the hero and which is most definitely not Obvious to the reader it may become quite early, but the problem is that it s not so obvious to Amelia Prentiss, the mother of our main character, Miss Patricia Prentiss She encourages she FORCES Patricia to spend time with the son of her best friend, even when she insists that she doesn t want to and tries to explain why not Mrs Prentiss believes that no son of a friend of HERS could ever be objectionable Pat [...]

    2. I think it s clear by these reviews that these books are a not so guilty pleasure of mine But this one totally makes me want to have just a moment of being in high school back then, to play the stupid games they played at her party and have school picnics The little glimpses into her public high school life contrasted with her boring socialite life are marvelous And the little trip to her eventual love interest s parents home, with the delicious meal Oh Grace, you know how to get me any domestic [...]

    3. I read a lot of Grace Livingston Hill when I was young but this book among all of her works is my favourite As a young girl, it gave me a healthy impression of what it was to learn how to be a good person It values hard work, genuine friendship, humility, and deals with what to do when the person you want to be and the person your friends family want you to be are not the same person There are individual hypocrites and organized religious hypocrisy cast as villains in the book which is another t [...]

    4. Patricia grew up a privileged girl, in a well to do family Her mother is a clueless social climber and only wants Patricia to associate with exclusive, upper class sorts Her father is democratic and insists that she be sent to public school but that s the only battle he ever wins he values peace too much to make a stand most of the time.I found this setup and family dynamic the most interesting thing about the book The rest of it goes like this view spoiler Patricia hits a growing up milestone, [...]

    5. This is one of my favorites by this auther She can frequently get carried away with words or preaching but this one had just a beautiful story.

    6. According to this GLH, home should be the antechamber of heaven, which seems to be setting the bar exhaustingly high I have trouble just getting the dishes done.The bete noire in Patricia is private schools which teach girls to be snobs and boys to be sissies Public schools, by contrast, breed virtue and strength of character Brian s new theory is that GLH voted for William Jennings Byran I don t know about that, but she definitely buys into the romance of the working man Boot straps and all tha [...]

    7. Love this bookAs a very young teenager this was one of the first romance books I read, I was thrilled when I found out I could purchase it on my kindle

    8. This is my favorite of her books It seems to have real depth to it, rather than the usual flighty romantic tale.

    9. What an odd story, told almost entirely in flashback We start the story at the ending, with the arrival of a young man at a mansion, where he is out of place The atmosphere is worldly, and so seems the young lady he s come to visit Then we wander back in time and find the sweet Patricia who I m predisposed to not like because she doesn t seem worthy of the young man who came to call early in the book John Worthe NAMES in this one But I do wind up liking her, but I keep waiting waiting for her to [...]

    10. Bravo, Grace Livingston Hill The story of Patricia Prentiss, and what an interesting story My first experience with this author, and I look forward to reading books by her

    11. One of my favorite books Grace Livingston Hill writes sweet stories of romance and an individual s journey to God and how Christ helps them overcome struggles I usually read this once a year just for nostalgia It is part of collection my grandmother owned and we both loved it I even referenced in my own novel, Spring till September.

    12. My grandmother had almost all of Grace Livingstone Hill s novels on her bookshelf I always brought my own books while visiting her, but one time I was there without anything to read so I decided to try this novel I really enjoyed it, so much so that I read it several times I have fond memories of this novel, the only GLH novel I ve ever read.
