Every author dreams of earning good reviews for his or her books. Isabella’s niece Grace Livingston Hill wrote stories that always seemed to win critics’ praises.
Eighty-nine years ago, Grace’s novel Ladybird was released, and became an instant favorite. Critics described it as “charming,” “wholesome,” and “adventuresome.”
On April 6, 1930 this review of Ladybird appeared in newspapers across the country.
That’s a nice review that Grace certainly would have appreciated!
And the interesting thing is that Ladybird is still widely read today. Reader sites like Goodreads.com give Ladybird 4 stars out of 5—Not bad for a book written almost 90 years ago!
Have you read Grace Livingston Hill’s novel Ladybird? What did you think of it? Do you agree with the reviewer?

I’ve never read this book. But then I haven’t read many GLH books yet. It sounds like one I should find and read. 🙂
I hope you enjoy it. It reminded me of Isabella’s Lost on the Trail, but with GLH’s flair. 🙂
That’s what I thought of when I read the review. 🙂
So glad to have found this site. Avid fan of GLH and Isabella Alden. Just want to connect with others who enjoy them as much as I do.
Welcome, Hattie! I’m glad you found us! —Jenny
