Alone in the city without money—without friends. Mother and father gone, her home sold over her head, deserted by her only brother—for Marion Warren the world seemed to have stopped. But her long years of nursing an uncomplaining father had taught her a great lesson. And she stepped bravely into a new life. Things seemed pretty black until those roses came, each week a cool velvety bud—a red rose for courage—but never a hint of the giver. For it never entered Marion’s head that rich, handsome Jeff Lyman would even notice a poor unobtrusive working girl. This is one of Mrs. Hill’s most beautifully written romances, a story of a girl whose courage in the face of adversity was finally rewarded beyond her wildest dreams.—jacket.

Author Bio for Hill, Grace Livingston
Grace Livingston Hill (1865-1947) was the daughter of a clergyman. Writing novels was considered an acceptable way for a woman to earn money, so at the age of twenty-two she wrote her first novel, A Chautauqua Idyl and continued to write after her marriage to a clergyman—mostly short stories; articles for magazines; and Sunday School lessons. Novels became her focus after she was widowed. The original target audience was those of the Christian faith, however her later writings were aimed wider afield. She wrote prolifically under both her own name and using the pseudonym Marcia MacDonald.
