This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1915 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER XIII The candy-platter, which had gone its silent rounds during the afternoon, was now standing empty on the floor by Dick's chair, and the story had reached its first climax when Hiram opened the door and brought in a tray. The boys suddenly drew up alertly, and realized for the first time that they had been listening. The consciousness that they had been off their guard was embarrassing to them; and they sought at once, boy-like, to cover this with a degree of hilarity out of all proportion to what they felt. Only the boy Wayne did not join in. He sat silent, thoughtful, with a softened, yet deeply sad, look on his face, gazing into the fire. Miss Gracen, as she looked at him, longed to ask him to tell her what was the matter. There must be something terribly wrong when a young face could wear a look of anguish such as that. On the tray were delicate sandwiches of brown and white bread with delectable filling, and a pot of hot chocolate with a bowl of whipped cream; Rebecca stepped softly behind Hiram, bearing a plate of little frosted sponge-cakes. Wayne Forrest looked at the tray startled, and arose as though he had inadvertently committed a terrible breach of etiquette. "It's time we beat it," he said in an undertone to Harold, whose end of the couch was near his chair. "I didn't know it was supper-time, did you?" 178 But Tom Atterbury sprang up to help pass the plates, and cried out: "Gee! Isn't this great? I say, Miss Gracen, you're the right stuff!" It required Miss Gracen's gentle, persuasive hand on Wayne's arm, and her earnest insistence, to make him sit down again and partake of the good things. He seemed all too conscious of his shabby suit, his sleeves, which were too short, and his hands, which reached too far out...

An orphaned boy. Long estranged from his father's family. A spinster aunt, still grieving the loss of her brother. The two, brought together by circumstances beyond their control, work together to heal their losses. Miss Vic collects stray boys from all walks of life as they come to know her nephew, Dick. She fills their bellies with food, their hearts with song, and teaches them the love of God. Of course it wouldn't be a good story without a little angst and drama, just enough to make one cheer a little when an obstacle is moved aside. It's a book that will make you smile long after you close the cover.

Most of the books I've read by Ms. Hill have been romances, this is not a romance but a good read in spite of that. Victoria Gracen is a lonely woman with means, she is a good woman with a Christian spirit. When she reads about the death of her sister-in-law, she immediately sends her son a telegram inviting him to visit with her to see if they both need each other. Richard "Dick" Gracen is her brothers son, her parents disowned her brother after he married beneath them. When her brother died, Victoria offered to take the son but his mother refused and they did not contact each other again.

Richard is a troubled young man, he loved his mother but he also wanted to go out and have fun and spend time with his friend, who were not always the best company for him to keep. He had not finished high school and did not have any idea of how he wanted to live his life. After the death of his mother, her brother - who felt he was snobby and had his father's ways brought Richard into his home and informed him that he would be working at the slaughter house starting the next day. Richard runs away and returns to his home where he received the telegram.

The storyline is a good one, the characters are good and well written. I had to suspend belief to get through most of the story. The way Victoria handled "her boys" was well done and I liked that she listened and encouraged them. My only issues were, why she never thought to have her sister-in-law live with her or to help them after the death of her parents. And while I "felt" the other boys who did not have much would eventually get help in one form or another, it would have been great to know that.

I've read many Grace Livingston Hill novels, so I pretty well know what to expect, usually. This one was different for sure. Not a lock of romance whatsoever. And yet it was actually a pretty fascinating story. My only complaint is that it ended too abruptly. I would have liked to follow these characters for a great deal longer. Possibly some of her best drawn characters, I think. And, as usual with GLH, quite inspirational.

Here is another story of goodness. A son, abandoned by his father's family because they didn't like his mom, then left orphaned at 16 when his mom passes, finds a very special home with his dad's sister, his Aunt Victoria Gracen. The story is told at that point from Miss Gracen's view of "her boy" and his new friends who also quickly become "her" boys. This is a love story, a story of grace, and a story of redemption- all because someone cared enough to say "I love you, no matter what." There is a fine- ness in these books of Ms. Hill that will make you want to be finer, nobler somehow in your own assessment of the things you see around you. The characters in her stories aren't the only ones who ultimately have their lives affected. Ms Hill's stories were written when the language was more formal, and society a bit more restricted, but her subject matter crosses the ages with its wisdom.

Just like life today, in 2018 . A good book seems to defy the passage of time. If people are given a chance, more times than not, they surprise you, and surpass great odds that have been laid to their charge. Many times, all it takes is the faith of just, one person, to change their lives for ever.

Few typos throughout this kindle version. Otherwise, its a nice story. For those unaccustomed to ms hill, you might find it a bit slow. The books are generally always happy-ending, no drama, no major conflict types but always heavy on Christian living and teach a valuable lesson that still applies to Christians today. They are generally sweet, easy reads. This one has been one of my favorites, since i work with kids and find myself partial to boys. Through victoria's eyes and story, she really shows the hurt and tough lives that a kid can face. I love how she so willingly served the Lord by reaching out to these unloveable boys that society has written off. A light, charming read which will suit you, especially if you love working with kids or have a heart for reaching others

Needed more stars to give! This story was awesome. A lot of subtle lessons taught. So hear warming that she touched the lives in such an outstanding way. Love, can heal in so many ways. A story that left me lifted up, happy, and peaceful when the last of the story came.
It has an old bitty that has nothing good to say about anyone, and causes trouble every way she can. A lady who has the heart of gold, and servants that love what she is doing.
So it has a tad of suspense, fun, heart touching, ends up better than imagined, isn't dull for one moment, and had me wishing I would have had something like that when I was that age.
An interesting story dealing with US society before the age of welfare and established rules for child custody. Relatives unable to care for themselves through age or lack of finances were simply taken by the closest relatives and often treated as unwelcome "poor relations". This story follows a familiar theme in Livingston's stories as it traces the changes in Miss Vic and in her nephew Dick. Each becomes a different person because of Miss Vic's choice to take in this difficult teen-age boy. It illustrates the writer's conviction that love, trust, and God's grace can work miracles in lives.
