Read full description of the books:



This is the first of Grace Livingston Hill's books that I have read that has a contemporary setting. Published in 1919, this story of Hilda Lessing and her adventures foiling German spies, is set against the backdrop of World War I. I enjoyed the author's depiction of wartime America and how she shows that some people believed there were German spies everywhere while others believed quite the opposite. At first, the heroine is unaffected by the war, but as she realizes that she has landed in a nest of German spies, and meets the hero who is preparing to go overseas to fight, her patriotic spirit and love of country is awakened. This book reminded me of Emilie Loring's wartime romances, even though Ms. Loring's stories were set against a World War II backdrop, and I enjoyed it very much because of that. Ms. Loring's heroines were always as fervently patriotic and determined to be of use as Hilda Lessing is in this story. I appreciated also, that this isn't a book of nuances. The author had no doubt where she stood: the enemy is described as cruel, beastly, fiendish, etc., while Hilda and her soldier hero are brave, true and strong, and even, in Hilda's case, a "holy vision." It's interesting, too, to see how much more willing the author is to admit the existence of class distinctions in America than we are comfortable with today. The fact that the hero's family owns railroads while Hilda has hired herself out as a maid makes Hilda doubt whether she is good enough for Daniel. Naturally, no one else who sees her is in any doubt of her character, beauty, and worth--she is a GLH heroine, after all--but it is enjoyable to read the hero's reassurances to her as he sweeps her into his strong arms. A very enjoyable read.
