CRIMSON ROSES by Grace Livingston Hill
There is just something about Grace Livingston Hill's stories that I find refreshing to read. Maybe it is the obvious good versus evil theme in her books. This story was about Marion Warren, a lonely but brave young woman who has lost her father and the inheritance and is living on her own. She has a secret admirer and is becoming friends with a handsome young man, but there are always those who want to put you down and make you feel unworthy. But God is faithful and loving and kind and takes care of Marion in ways only He can. There is good in the world and Marion tries to see it in every aspect of her life and it was good to see how she reaches out to everyone, and tries to befriend them. I came away from reading this story uplifted and wanting to be more like the character Marion!
