    Usually, GLH doesn't get very theological, and, when she does, it doesn't go well. Not so here! She spoke a lot about how we can receive wisdom and guidance from God because of the work of Christ. There was a much greater emphasis on the Gospel than on God-fearing morality. This book also had much to say about choosing a spouse. There was still a bit of a rescue happening, but our heroine actually put thought into it.

    Good...but I've come to expect better from this author.

    Amorelle Dean is a minister’s daughter. She is capable, lovely and strong with a strong faith and a good Christian upbringing. However, she is quite naive about the ways of the world. With the death of her father, she now has to face the world on her own.This book is not so much a romance as a women's fiction. The title of the book is quite fitting. It is all about Amorelle and her life once her father died, her growth personally and spiritually, mistakes she made and the happiness only God can provide in granting her a happily ever after. It is a story of great characters and a plot filled with mild intrigue. Most times Grace Livingston Hill doesn't just write a cute romance about boy and girl. There is something else going on in the external plot that drives the story just as much as the falling in love part.From the moment her father dies, Amorelle is at the mercy of other people whether they aretrying to match her up for marriage or turning her into a servant or forcing her into a horrid engagement. Then enters Russell Garrison and finally she has a protector, someone who understands her and appreciates her. Of course, this merely increases the conflict in other areas of Amorelle's life.It's almost like a Cinderella story. She is the poor orphan girl who comes to live in her uncle’s house with his new wife and her grown daughter. They don't appreciate her and turn her into a servant and later allow an imprudent engagement that Amorelle does not want. When wealthy Garrison arrives, he is like the prince come to rescue her from her trials.There are parts of the book which were slow and at times it was agonizing to read how terribly Amorelle was put upon and preyed upon. Once Garrison came into the picture, the story flowed and it became much more interesting. It was a well written book and as always GLH presents the gospel and God's affirming love. A good book not to be missed.Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from Barbour Publishing through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    AmorelleI love how Grace pays back to the characters that deserve it. Poor George and Mr Pike fell victims to her righteousness. I really liked the Job and Cinderella and kindred-spirits twists in this book. She made them more original of course but it was sweet to have it all bundled up together in one persons life and see God work His miracle and turn it all into His perfect plan for happyly-ever-after.Amorelle's sincerity her meekness her love for the Lord brought her uncle to love her and to find that tangible and precious relationship with the Lord. Lavinia's advises made me miss my grandma who always knew how to give a good advise and lovingly stir me on the right path with our Lord. Again she made amazing work of the deep spirituality and inner battles that make you really think through life. I strongly recommend this book to the girls on the verge of marriage. Are you marrying for love and to your kindered-spirit? Or are marrying a man like George and all those other men that only thought of Amorelle as convenient efficient and beautiful to have for themselves and to boast about??

    Hott Synopsis:Left to fend for herself upon her father’s sudden death, Amorelle is distraught to learn that some the presumptuous but well-meaning members of his congregation have decided to take over by marrying her off to the first bidder and selling her treasures. With little choice Amorelle does what she must. She packs up her house and goes to her uncle’s. But not all roads lead to a happy ending.Will these tumultuous time give Amorelle the faith she desires to lean on the God she so desperately needs?Hott Review:Amorelle is a bit of an odd story. It has all of the elements, but it just wasn’t amazing. Her thoughts and actions, along with the other characters, were very naive. The book, however, has a few very wonderful passages about marriage that I believe will help teens know what not to accept.More…Author: Grace Livingston HillSource: Barbour Books via NetgalleyGrade: BAges: 16+Steam: YASetting: New EnglandSeries: Grace Livingston Hill #4

    Many of GLH's heroines are plagued by unwanted suitor, but, partially due to the actions of a "friend," Amorelle is pursued by a whole pack of them. Most of her dealings with them are amusing, but one of them is a Bad Man, who was somehow involved with her recently deceased father.If anyone who reads GLH worries about spoilers, you should skip the rest of this. Amorelle ends up engaged to the wrong guy, which isn't as common in Hill's books as unwanted suitors but happens fairly often, however this blighted romance starts out much more realistically than most, then ends up complete farce. GLH is clearly a "seat of the pants" kind of writer, who sometimes changes direction halfway through or loses track of what she said before and pretends "that never happened," but this time the transition was smooth enough I just sat back and enjoyed the ride.

    This book offers an interesting, easy read. My heart went out to Amorelle because it reflected similar experiences I have endured as a pastor's daughter. The story reveals how having patience and enduring in difficult circumstances leads to rewards. Lots of heartache but love comes in the end. A good read.

    One of the books I read whilst living abroad on the very quiet island of Dominica. It was a pleasure to read. One of the stories I will never forget.This book holds personal memories for me and became a guide in a sense. Amorelle is such a wonderful story about love, lost and faith. There is a part of her in all of us that believes the world can be beautiful place.

    This book is pretty easy to read and it has some funny parts. I'm only hundred pages into it. I do really like how they respect God, they have some good sayings regaurding faith as well, and the love of God.

    One of GLH's more cohesive novels. Her stories are so refreshing in this modern world. They don't take much brain power to read, but I do enjoy reading about people who strive to live righteously.
