"A Vine-Clad Porch"

"She led him to a vine-clad porch where easy willow chairs and tables, a few books and a bit of sewing made it seem almost like an open-air living room.

'How cosy this is!' he said, as he settled down in a big willow armchair and put his head back against a convenient cushion.

'We like it,' said the girl with a quick glance around to see if the little sister who was supposed to put this room in order the first thing in the morning had done her work."

--Grace Livingston Hill, Daphne Deane

This makes me want to pick up a GLH volumne before bed tonight.

That sounds so inviting! The other day at the library someone dropped off "The Girl in the Woods" - I grabbed it. I hope it's one of the good ones.

How lovely! You've inspired me to read a book by this author I've seen in the bookstores, but never actually read.

Very inviting indeed. Through you Anna, I have discovered Grace Livingston Hill and have been very blessed reading her books. Thanks for the inspiration!

Have a wonderful day!

It's a stormy day here. What a nice read to fill in the gloom.

What a great quote! I enjoyed GLH in my girlhood years.
