Grace Livingston Hill was a well-established 20th Century author, who wrote books using her real names and her pseudonym, Marcia Macdonald. As an accomplished author, Grace Hill has penned more than 100 novels and several other short stories. Most of the characters that Grace Livingston Hill creates are normally Christian women or women who are raised within the confines of religion. Grace Livingston Hill was born on April 16, 1865, in Wellsville, New York to Charles Montgomery, a Presbyterian minister, and Marcia MacDonald. Both of her parents and her sister were writers as well. Marcia’s sister was a renowned author who penned using her pseudonym name, Pansy. The first novel that Grace Livingston Hill wrote raised more than enough money for author Hill to go on a vacation to Chautauqua. The death of her first husband and lack of funds were Grace Livingston Hill’s greatest life motivators.

Because Grace Livingston Hill did not have any other source of income, she was prompted to write on a frequent basis. After the death of her husband, Grace Livingston got married to Flavius Josephus Lutz, who served as a church organist. However, after ten years, her marriage got sour, and the two broke up.

Grace Livingston Hill Best Books
The Enchanted Barn
The Enchanted Barn is one of the best performing books by author Grace Livingston. Many reviewers have likened the Enchanted Barn to a fairy tale, where hard work, love, faith, and courage outweigh the forces of despair. In Enchanted Barn, a destitute family manages to turn an extremely old stone barn into a family home. Shirley, the protagonist, is the eldest child and serves as a stenographer. Due to the fact that Shirley’s father passed away and her mother is not fit to work, Shirley must push herself beyond her limits, to ensure that she provides for her family at all times. While going with her day-to-day work, Shirley finds herself at the center of espionage and fraud attempts. Shirley’s quick thinking and courage save the day.

Despite the fact that Shirley had no option, but to bear the burden herself, she does not become bitter. Instead, Shirley becomes optimistic, irrespective of the various challenges that her family faces. Nonetheless, it does not take long before the small house that they had lived in for quite some time is to be demolished. Within the same month, Shirley must be able to find a new house for the family. If she fails, then her family will not have a home. The book begins as the Hollister’s find themselves in an extremely difficult situation. Their father has recently passed away, while their mother is seriously ill. The family has a total of five children that need to be taken care of and from the look of things the apartment that they have been living on, will be closed in a few months’ time.

Shirley is the oldest girl in the family and is employed as a secretary. One fine day, Shirley decided to leave work early and decided to take a trolley, while looking for affordable apartments or houses to rent. Shirley spends her entire day looking for an affordable apartment. From the look of things, luck is not on Shirley’s side. Just when she was about to retire, Shirley is informed about an old barn that was sitting empty. Shirley decides to inquire more about the barn. The first person that Shirley met was the owner of the barn. After a lengthy conversation, Shirley and the owner of the barn strike a deal. The owner of the barn is not only tall and handsome but also extremely rich.

Once the owner of the barn, met with Shirley, there was something about Shirley’s eyes and manner that intrigued him. Shirley was very different from all the other girls that he had previously met. Because Sydney Graham developed a liking for Shirley, he decided to help her by adding a few things to the barn and lowering the expected rent. With that said, the Enchanted Barn is an excellent summer read, which will definitely make the readers look forward for Grace Livingston Hill’s future novel.

Marcia Schuyler
Marcia Schuyler is the first installment in the Miranda book series by author Grace Livingston Hill. In Marcia Schuyler, Marcia was expected to be the bridesmaid; however, she ended up becoming the bride. Marcia married the groom who was initially expected to marry her sister. Nonetheless, the marriage took place with the permission of her parents and the groom as well. On the morning of the wedding, Marcia’s sister decided that she was getting married to the wrong man and thus, she decided to run away with someone else. This was an extremely awkward situation with the awkwardness being postponed by the sudden switching of brides. Most people were not aware of what had happened until the middle of the ceremony. After the wedding, Marcia finds herself in a new home, new town, and new life.

Marcia still has her sister’s cloth on and is busy trying to be someone that she is not. Apart from being a happy marriage, it is also a safe marriage for the most of it. Marcia and David are quite friendly with one another and quite respectful as well. Marcia Schuyler is a romance novel, where the protagonists fall in love after the marriage ceremony and not before. There are places in Marcia Schuyler that can be quite dramatic, and the readers have not seen the last of Kate, Marcia’s sister. Apart from Kate, there is also another villain, Harry, who just like Kate has his role to play in the narrative. Marcia Schuyler features numerous memorable characters such as Miranda, David’s three aunts and Anna, a woman who is more than determined to catch David.

With that said, Marcia Schuyler is a novel that takes place several years ago, before feminism meant that women could be unwomanly or rude. Marcia Schuyler is a gracious woman, who not only loves, but also obeys honors and finds herself falling in love with the man who was supposed to be her sister’s husband. Marcia Schuyler is undeniably a page-turner that is filled with numerous unexpected twists and turns. All the characters in Marcia Schuyler portrayed emotions that readers may have experienced at one point in their lives.

    Thanks for this! I love that you listed the books so now I can read each of them on Internet Archive.

  2. Isabelle: 3 months ago

    As a young woman myself, I would find myself completely engulfed in the story! I love the fact that she has no vulgar thoughts or actions in it and I can read on without feeling guilty of impure thoughts!

  3. Marcia Johnson: 2 years ago

    I have read them a few times, to me, they are the best love stories, Love of God and fellowship with other believers. I have often wanted to know Grace or someone like here, I would love to have Christian fellowship like that. right now I am reading a strange proposal. Love how she puts interest in things of the Lord, right into every day life, another similar author I like is Gilbert Morris.
    God Bless you all, Marcia

    • Isabelle Sanchez: 3 months ago

      I have to agree with you! Gilbert is a great author as well and I enjoy his sweet romances!

    • Isabelle: 3 months ago

      Yes, Gilbert Morris is another great author! You should look at Lamplighter books as well. They’re kinda pricy, but well worth it!!

    I have loved Grace Livingston Hill books ever since I was a young teenager in the 50’s. In fact, I have read every one of them a number of times, and through the years have been able to purchase almost all of them – most in paperback, but a few first editions. I appreciate the fact that there is no objectional language, no sexual innuendos, just clean, wholesome stories of love, commitment, pursuit of God. Thank you for including her in your website!

  5. Susan Coffey: 3 years ago

    Dear Graeme,
    “According to the Pattern” is exactly what I am looking for. I’ve already ordered a copy. Thank you so much!!!

  6. Susan Coffey: 3 years ago

    I read “In Tune With Wedding Bells” by Grace Livingston Hill when I was twelve and thought it was the best book I had ever read in my short reading career. Fifty years later I still think her books are the best ever. I’m looking now for one of her books that teaches a young wife how to hang on to her husband, how to correct a slipping marriage, how to be a successful wife in all areas of marriage. Can you provide me with a title? Thank you!

    • Graeme: 3 years ago

      Would that be “According to the Pattern”?

  7. Kimberly Johnson: 6 years ago

    I am thrilled to find a list of the numerous books written by Grace Livingston Hill. I deeply enjoy her writing, the thoughtfulness she puts into her characters and how even 100+ yrs later the same situations are still going on in our world today – only the décor around us has changed. I love the redemption and how she simply and truly shows how God does come into our lives lovingly, to forgive, cleanse, renew and wants to provide a better future for us in Him!
