This short story by Isabella’s niece, Grace Livingston Hill, first appeared in a Christian magazine in 1917.
In “A Journey of Discovery” Louise Hasbrouck knows what everyone expects of her. She just received an offer of marriage from Halsey Carstairs, one of the city’s most eligible bachelors. Louise should feel honored and happy; instead she feels restless and anxious to talk to her old friend, Cecilia, who became a bride herself just two years before.
But when Louise arrives at Cecilia’s sweet little cottage in the country, and sees the life she leads away from the city’s whirling social scene, Louise begins to question the path society has plotted for her. Should Louise accept Halsey’s proposal, or will she find the strength to follow her heart?

Thanks for this. *That* was a quick romance! Had to be short for the magazine I’m sure. I wonder if Aunt Isabella would have written it differently.
I’m sure Isabella would have put her own unique stamp on that story. Thanks for commenting, Barbara! —Jenny

Thank you so much for sharing this Grace Livingston Hill story that I couldn’t have gotten anywhere else. Mother started me off reading these wonderful Christian works when I was very young, and they have been a lifelong blessing.

One of my favorite GLH short stories. As much as I love her books, I think she wrote short stories the best. Thank you for sharing so I could re-read it!
Glad you liked it! —Jenny
