Grace Livingstone Hill books

Recommended Posts

Mom is legally blind so DD or I read to her every night. Her favorites are books by Grace Livingston Hill. We have almost all of the books she wrote and have read them all several times. Mom never gets tired of them but I was just wondering if there were other authors similar to her that wrote during the same time frame? I know there are all the Amish books but that's not really what I'm looking for.  It is said the GLH actually invented the genre of Christian romance. Thanks for any suggestions.

What time frame is she in?

 

Christian-romance-wise, I'm a big fan of Melanie Dickerson (medieval/fairy tale & now Regency) and Shanna Hatfield (all over the map).

Thank for the reply. Hmm..no fairy-tale types for us!

 

GLH wrote from the very late 1800s up to about 1949. Her books were "current" to the times. Mom likes her because she knows there will be no violence, no bad language, no sex, no occult, etc.

Have you tried the series that a father-daughter team writes.  It's an ongoing saga of generations of a Christian family beginning with the Mayflower and coming on into the Great Depression era.  A lot of books.  Usual scenario is a wayward son/daughter who finds their way back to God and family.  A lot of history told within their lives.  My mom enjoyed that series very much.

The daughter, Lynn Morris, co-wrote a series: Cheney Duvall, M.D.  ....young woman doctor, post-Civil War era.
