I've read several of the Grace Livingston Hill books for Kindle and have had mixed results from them. Some I have enjoyed very much--others have been more of a slog. This one falls more in the slog category. It's not a bad book and it mostly held my attention, but I found the characters and their stories more ridiculous than involving and I was ready for it to be over long before it was.

My biggest issue with this story is that the heroine is too absurdly perfect to be interesting. I understand that Hill was trying to bring readers to Christianity and these books were her way of doing that, but in making Margaret so impossibly good, Hill is guilty of overselling. No one could possibly be as saintly, accomplished, beautiful, and poised as Margaret is. She never puts a foot wrong, never is mean to anyone, never fails to dazzle everyone she meets ("Margaret, using all the charm of her lovely personality to uphold standards of right, truth, purity, high living, and earnest thinking"). Perfect characters do not make for interesting reading. And even though the hero, Gardley, has some changing to do--for some never-to-be-defined sin in his past--it only takes meeting Margaret in all her glowing perfection for him to instantly turn his life around. It's particularly nauseating that all the lower-class people Margaret comes into contact with are miraculously changed for the better by her, simply by shaking her hand or having her sing to them ("they all sat...and marveled at her. A woman like that condescending to come visit them!"). There's always a bit of snobbery in these novels, but in this case it was truly over the top.

Of course, subtlety was never Hill's strong suit, so you always know whether someone is good or bad simply by the way she describes them. Hero: "broad shoulders, well-set heard, close-cropped curls, handsome contour even in the darkness." Bad guy: "slight, with a putty complexion; cold, pale-blue eyes; pale, straw-colored hair, and a look of self-indulgence around his rather weak mouth." That latter description is for a minister Margaret meets who is in Arizona to rest and recuperate. He falls for her--naturally!--but she wants nothing to do with him, especially after she learns that he doesn't believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible. For that sin, he is eventually shanghaied and basically tortured by a group of wranglers who force him to recant his heresy and extract a promise that he will henceforth stick with Bible teaching. Bizarrely, Hill presents this event as if it is something the reader should find admirable or at least entertaining.

All in all, this wasn't a bad book, but it wasn't a particularly good one either. As far as Arizona stories go, I much preferred Hill's The Man of the Desert and liked that the hero and heroine of that story also make an appearance in this book.

One of the longer, more involved stories. I love reading about life during that period, written by a contemporary. How many young people today would a) set off all alone to a strange place to teach (no social media to give them info about where they were headed), b) pack trunks to include scrim (which I learned was a fabric used to make curtains) c)cut down the packing box to make bookcases! The main reason I didn't give this a 5 was because after significant detail about Rosa (the 'bad' girl) and what she did to Margaret, her story abruptly stops after she runs off to be with her "lover" - not very clear what happened after that. Certainly the depiction of Indians and others wouldn't pass "PC" muster these days. And some familiar words no longer mean quite what they did back then (e.g. gay)

Whoever "translated" this book apparently didnt know the difference in words.. EX":used 'teach" for coach and automobile for "train" This particular download was horrible. the story is awesome, but whoever transcribed clearly used autocorrect incorrectly. Be sure to read a sample before you buy it!!

I have read most of GLH's books, and this one and The Girl From Montana are somewhat different from her usual settings. These are a little more "western," and I enjoyed them both, though GLH's stories always seem to have a poor character inherit a fortune, or the rich character will marry the poor person after he or she learns the proper place of money, or will have righted wrongs. The couple then has unlimited funds to do what they like to help others. Though this doesn't seem to be the case in real life, it is a satisfactory ending to her stories. Reading her stories gives me insight into Hill's perspective and values. Her voice is heard in certain parts of the narration.

The story moves along briskly, with plenty of twists and interesting characters. Some of the outdoor scenes are memorable, though the surroundings are never painted in as much detail as I would like. It is simplistic. The characters are too perfect. And the concluding section is downright syrupy. Still -- at this price, who can complain? The formatting is first rate (on my Kindle Paperwhite).

Knights from Bernin
I loved this book but then I also am a huge fan of the writer. I loved how the main character was such a great example of Christian living and how she changed the children in her classroom as a result. Yes, love was woven through the story for her as well and yet a villain or two were also. Well written I felt and with a different start to this book than usual. This book had a awesome stand on what religion is and relationship with God isn't in the form of a "so called" minister and how God saw he was dealt with for his misleading people. Great read!

This book is about a young woman that travels to Arizona from the east where life is more civilised,she is a christian lady with a loving heart and great wit that just seems to change the people she meets and makes them want to do better.The story has many pitfalls for her but because of her faith in the Lord and her love for others she always makes it through.I would have to say this is one of the top five books that that I have ever read,the author also wrote another book titled The City of Fire and it was just as great a read as this one,so if you have never read one her books do yourself a favor and read one you will just love her style of writing and the wonderful characters she puts in her story.
