CITY OF FIRE is a different kind of novel. Much of the story is about Billy Gaston, a boy on the brink of manhood. Billy is basically good, but he gets mixed up with some kidnappers and works hard to make everything come out right.

Billy's two favorite people are Marilyn (Lynn) Severn, the minister's daughter, and Mark Carter. They were childhood friends who fell in love, but, when Mark hears someone say he isn't good enough for her, he turns cold to her and goes off to prove them right. Marilyn accepts all this without an explanation and stoically goes on with her life of playing the organ and helping others. I thought this was a weak link in the plot.

I found the characters very interesting, even Laurie Shafton, the rich, spoiled, lady's man, who had never been told "no," until Marilyn. The plot had some parts that didn't seem quite believable, like when the doctor at a hospital impulsively left his job and took all day to drive Billy home. I still found the story intereresting. I even thought the archaic slang some reviewers mentioned to be chaming and add to the early 20th century feel of the book. Some of the dialect (I guess it was supposed to be New York state) was a little difficult and didn't ring true to me, but, in the end, I was glad I read the novel.

This is about a young man who, upon overhearing that he's not considered good enough for the girl he loves, sets out to prove them right and then has to deal with the guilt and shame. In a time when there is very little shame anymore, it's hard to relate to the torture the people in this story put themselves through. Much of the story is told through the eyes of a young boy who observes, and is involved in, many of the twists and turns the story takes, from a kidnapping, to jealousy, to thwarting villains, to surviving being shot, to surviving a tenement fire, to a murder trial - it all happens in this story. Throughout, all the characters come face to face with faith, God, forgiveness, and grace. I like these books, even though they tend to be schmalzy and very old fashioned and sometimes even not particularly well written, but they're charming all the same and always contain some uplifting truth about Christ.

i am now reading the city of fire and i have to tell you that after reading the earlier revewsi was expecting a very boring and uninteresting book ,but i have to say that this book is great.the way she describes scenes are wonderful and the way she puts little gems of scripture in the story just adds more to the story.the characters are so believable and the moral fiber of the book makes it a great read.so dont always believe every reveiw that you read because you just might miss a great book

Sometimes we are told "You may be the only Bible a person ever reads". They are going by what they see in our lives as a witness to the saving grace of God. The City of Fire by Grace Livingston Hill is another testimony that God's forgiveness is for everyone.

I love all of Grace Livingston Hill’s books. I hadn’t read this book for many years and I’m always so touched by the way she weaves the Gospel message into the thread of exciting adventures.

the general synopsis of the story is that this is a story about a mill worker and her romance, which does not begin to describe Grace Livingston Hill's way with words. That turns ho hum into a fascinating read you wont want to put down.

I love all of Grace Livingston Hill 's books. I read them with my grandma 60 years ago and I find it a refreshing break from today's world as I am rereading then at age 73.

No insight into real people; the main characters were so predictable, the good just ridiculous as were the 'bad' characters. I know this isn't a great author, though she wrote many books! But this was my least favorite, as far as I remember.
