A friend gave me my first Grace Livingston Hill (GLH) books when I was in graduate school. Somewhere along the way, I set out to own all the titles that had been published. This book was one I found at a rare book store. It does have a signature (purportedly the author's) on the flyleaf, though I haven't had it verified. The inscription is dated 1926.

The tale is about justice and mercy. Evan is determined to see Rowena's relatives brought to justice even if it means losing her love. Justice is important, but so are fairness, grace, and mercy.

The stories are written in a different style than contemporary romances. (GLH was one of the first Christian romance writers if what I have read is true.) It's a good story, but today's audiences may find it different than what they are used to. ( )
