Comments Christmas Bride

  • Kathleen

    Too much religion in this book, detracting from the story, and the message is somewhat inconsistent with Christ's command to feed the hungry, and to judge not. Otherwise, a sweet holiday romance, written in 1934. Set in New England in the late 1920's during the Great Depression, the story spans Thanksgiving and Christmas. Heartwarming holiday scenes, with the H / h and her kindly old grandparents. Descriptive scenes of the Depression. The author lived through it, so she'd know. Some heartwrenchi [...]

    I have loved Grace Livingstone Hill's books for years, and I'm delighted that they are being reissued now! The Christmas Bride is a gentle story of love, faith and hope and is just a delight to revisit. I highly recommend this charming books!


  • Kristine Hansen

    I started the year on Grace Livingston Hill, and so too I end it on that note. Here a man with newfound wealth finds a girl who is starving to death before his eyes. His efforts to save Margaret are sometimes a little heavy-handed, but the sincerity is there, as it is in his own stumbling newfound walk with Christ. Again, we see the blissful idyll of the family farm, and living simply, held in contrast to the things of the world. At the same time, education and the betterment of one's mind is he [...]


  • Danielle Reily

    I love Grace Livingston Hill's books, but they are a little old fashioned. In a lot of Hill's books the "good people" are very good, giving, caring, they don't smoke, wear make-up, dance, or drink, and they are attractive and intelligent. The "bad people" are very bad, they drink, smoke, drink, gamble, go out all night, they have multiple divoces, are immoddest, and while they can be portrayed as attractive and intelligent they usually end up being considered fake or false. It makes the plot and [...]

    It’s been a long time since I’ve read a Grace Livingston Hill book! I am so glad they are making a comeback. I really enjoyed this wonderful Christmas story.The head nurse on the hospital floor was a bit arrogant and took things into her own hands a bit too soon. Greg brought Margaret into the hospital and paid her entire bill, setting her room up as a memorial to give poor people a nice room for free while in the hospital. When Margaret found out, she really made an idiot of herself. But Gr [...]

    I have loved reading Grace Livingston Hill in the past. She always writes in a bygone era - for the post modern reader. Of course it is her own era and therefore the attitude, language and Christian practice and ideals of the time are authentic. I admit that having recently been ruthlessly schooled on post modern writing styles, I was a bit distracted by her old fashioned writing style of telling, rather than showing. In the past this never bothered me, but I noticed it a lot this time. Still a [...]


  • Jerry

    This is my first experience with classic Christian writer Grace Livingston Hill. I have to say, even though I'm not a huge fan of older literature other than the Bible, I really enjoyed it. It had a timeless appeal and quite a bit of old-school charm. If you're a fan of Christian fiction, you should definitely check Grace Livingston Hill's books out. Though she may have left this world decades ago, she lives on through her writingsd for good reason, too.


  • Kristin

    Not my favorite GLH book, but I did enjoy the story. This particular GLH story has surprisingly little character development--both protagonists are close to perfect from the very beginning, and the one conversion that occurs requires very little persuasion to reach that point. Overall, an enjoyable read but not very memorable.


  • Mollythepirate

    Written in 1934 and reprinted in 1994 with the most ridiculous cover possible. There was sparing use of slang, just the occasional, "Say, she's a crackerjack cook!" which actually tickled me quite a bit. Although I don't know anywhere I can check my bags for ten cents and buy a peanut butter sandwich for five cents anymore I thought this book felt pretty "new." Not too sappy but very cute.


  • Karen

    The Christmas BrideExcellent book about a man who suddenly becomes rich and can not understand how the world has changed in 10 years. After seeing a young lady collapse in the park, he provided for her care. I highly recommend this book!


  • Melissa

    I liked this one, especially having read it around Christmas. It was wonderful to read about the relationship between two people who are Christians. It contains a bit of mystery along with adventure and romance. All in all, a good read.


  • Tausha

    Cute, clean read. This one was a little cheesy for me and very preachy, but still a cute read. The style of writing made more sense to me once I noticed the author actually lived (1865-1947). Glad I read it, but probably wouldn't read again.


  • Magma

    ohmygosh! this is the first Grace Livingston Hill book I read when I was a kid! I still love this one the most probablyor it's tied with The Enchanted Barn.*after reading* I always love it every time I read this book.


  • Dianna

    Not one of her best, but I liked the strong current of Biblical themes. I thought they got a bit extreme at times, but I liked to see how the heroine's grandparents trusted in God through their hard times, and how the newly married couple had strong values and convictions.


  • Rachel

    I like these clean Christian romances by Grace Livingston Hill; however, I will say that her good characters are almost too perfect and her bad ones horribly evil, which can make them amusing although that's not the intent. They are well written though.


  • Carrie Daws

    It's an older book and I had to adjust to the writing style. It's written in the omniscient point of view, which I also had to adapt to since I don't read many of those. But the story is sweet and the main characters charming.


  • Gina Mcandrew

    Pretty goodThis isn't my favorite book by the author, but is a pleasant read. As always, the author includes a strong gospel message.


  • Roberta

    Another Christian love story culminating in a Christmas wedding. Somehow she pulls it off without being too, too sappy. BUT, I don't think I could read GLH any other time of the year.


  • Mkrieg

    A very pure and sweet Christian love story. I was left with a happy feeling.


  • Margaret Boehm

    excellent


  • Graham

    This would be a great movie.


  • Sarah Cearley

    Grace Livingston Hill is my guilty pleasure


  • Annie

    very predictable, but cute.


  • Wilani Wahl

    I love Grace Livingston Hill and this book was true to the others. It is a wonderful book. Very clearly talks about the Lord and being a Christian.


  • Carrie

    I was first introduced to Grace Livingston Hill as a young reader. She was my first foray into Christian or Inspirational Fiction. I enjoy her simplistic writing style, her ability to speak on lifestyle purity in away that is completely foreign today and may have even been foreign in her own time, her ability to bring redemption in a dark world, and for her simplistic preaching within the story lines."The Christmas Bride" is a wonderful story of being in a place for "such a time as this". Greg r [...]

    My former mother-in-law introduced me to Grace Livingston Hill. The Christmas Bride is one of the three Christmas novels that she wrote. This one is my second favorite of the three and I read them every year.


  • Keary Onken

    I really liked the set-up and the first half of this book. But then when he just stumbles upon her, it just killed the narrative tension. After that it felt like Hill just kind of phoned it in. And I seriously could have done w/o the unbiblical Scolfield pre-millenial dispensationalist nonsense.


  • Roberta

    This is a very good christian book. I love the story.
