College girl is called home early to help take care of her family through her mother's extended illness. One brother has fallen in with the wrong crowd, another is embittered, the sister is overworked, and the father depressed. What can a girl do? Get the whole family together to make a pleasant home! A flurry of fireplace building and gingerbread baking begins. I just love it. The romance is nearly an afterthought as the main focus is on love of family. And gingerbread.Edit to add: I REALLY wis [...]

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 [...]
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, d [...]
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 [...]
I've read this book dozens of times. It's one of those relaxing, go to books Every time I read it, I roll my eyes at some of the gender stereotypes and elitism it contains. Yet, I keep going back and reading it again. It's a nice storyI like the parts where she is making over their home. The romance is kind of an afterthought.
Cornelia is just the sort of heroine I like. Strong and self reliant, but not always perfect sometimes selfish, sometimes impatient, sometimes just discouraged, but she picks herself up and tries again.
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!!
Love this book! So sweet!
GoodEnjoyable and uplifting. I wonder why so many words are necessary for a review. I would do more reviews if I could just rate it.
LovelyThis is a book displaying so many human emotions that we have experienced. Love , disappointment, joy, soul searching and fears that we all have had at one time or another.
Reminds me somewhat of another favorite for re-reading, EMILY OF DEEP VALLEY by Maud Hart Lovelace.
These few books that I have read by Hill are wonderful in seeing just what tremendous influence women can have in the world.
Sweet story of a girl who leaves college to help her family, interior decorating and romance/protégés.
One of my all time favorite books.
Hill, Grace Livingston
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 [...]
