Biology for the non biologist, interesting, & informative, New views.

Outstanding book. Makes biology & the study of life very interesting. Great detail, but not overwhelming. Many illustrations that are first class & very instructive. Highly recommend.

The Obsession of Victoria Gracen

An implausible plot in which the teenage boys in town are drawn to know the Lord and better behavior as the result of Ms. Gracen's picnics, elegant dinners at her mansion, classical and spiritual music, followed by her reading books and the Bible to them. Highly implausible, but a beautifully written book -- and oh, that it were so!

Christian Love Shines Through In This Book

This is one of the best Grace Livingston Hill books I have ever read and that is saying a mouthful! Dick Gracen, after being orphaned, has a cruel life until his aunt, Victoria Gracen, sends for him. She shows love not only to him but to other boys who are friends of his. For her efforts, she is spitefully gossiped about by Lydia Bypath, who is like the Pharisees who persecuted Jesus. In spite of the gossip, Victoria Gracen teaches the young men about Christ and shows that Christianity should show love and not be spiteful like the Pharisee, Lydia Bypath, thinks it should be.

You're never to young or old to have fun and learn of life

Victoria Gracen shocks the local gossips when she befriends the bad boys of town. What could a single woman know about raising teenage boys? How she handles their exuberance and their solemn moments makes for a book that is both touching and humorous. The boys teach her about rag time and she teaches them about the classics. They discover adventures together and help stop a meddlesome old woman from spreading false news from her poisoned words. Good deeds triumph in the end over vindictive thoughts.
