Review: The Honor Girl

User Review  - Katrina Hosking - Goodreads

Hadn't read this in years but really enjoyed reading it again. Makes me think of my mother's mom (who I never met) that had to go live with an aunt after her mother died. She never went back to live with her father and brother though, as the character Elsie in the story did. Read full review

About the author (1985)

Grace Livingston Hill was born on April 16, 1865 in Wellsville, New York. In 1886, she moved with her family to Winter Park, Florida, where she got a job teaching gymnastics at a local college. She wrote her first book there, in an effort to raise money for a family vacation to Chautauqua Lake. The book was called Chatauqua Idyl and was published in 1887. She eventually married and began a family, but lost her husband to appendicitis. At this point in her life, her writing was the only way she could support her family. During her lifetime, she wrote over 100 novels and numerous short stories of religious and Christian fiction including Blue Ruin and Mary Arden. She died in 1947 at the age of 82.
