Simply because the romantic element of the story is lacking. Yes, the young man gains a respect and esteem for "the honor girl", but there is no strong romantic attachment that develops as in most GLH books.

I've often compared the women in Grace Livingston Hill's books to the women in Agatha Christie's as they both had books published during the same time period. While Grace Livingston Hill is no theologian or some great novelist, her stories are timeless. They remind you of a simpler time when life focused around family and love. Honor Girl is no different.

The Honor Girl - Grace Livingston Hill. She studies early and late, takes little or no time for recreation, and is as sweet and kindly with it all as you ever saw a girl. There was an audible hush, even above the tinkling notes of the piano, as Elsie stepped out onto the floor of the gymnasium and bowed to her audience. This was the pièce de résistance of the program, and every eye was fastened upon the girl who had received more honors than any other girl in school. She was working so hard her health was breaking under it, and we insisted upon her giving some time to the development of her body.

Elsie Hathaway is the best student at her high school, she is a leading scholar, musician and now she has extended her dominance to dance and athletics at he end of year performance Elsie dances for the audience and is of course the best and most honored student. When she overhears a former student comment that he wonders what she would do if she was "tried by fire".

Elsie is offended by the remark but ignores him and basks in the comments from others. Elsie lives with her Aunts family, her mother passed away years ago and although she has two brothers and a father, her Aunt felt she needed to be in a family where she would have a woman's influence. Elsie has gotten to the point where she doesn't really know her real family.

When she visits her fathers home to pick up a book she left, she walks in on absolute squalor, the house is dirty, clothes are scattered everywhere, the kitchen is full of dirty dishes and left over food. Elsie is appalled and feeling sorry for a house where men don't know what to do, decides to clean her youngest brother room, but that changes to the entire house and finally to leaving a home cooked meal for them. Over the next few weeks, she returns to cook and clean for her family and finally decides that she needs to step up and move back home so that they will have the influence of a woman's touch in their home.

This story is a chronicle of the changing world of the1920's and what the expectations were for women, even those who were well educated and planned to attend college. They were still expected to know how to run a house, albeit with help. As one reviewer commented, this is not a love story. Its a story of family love and how we feel about helping our family remain stable and productive. And how the influence of a women on men is always better.

This is one of my favorite Grace Livingston Hill books. Old fashioned, with definite ideas as to how a young godly woman should act and be, Hill writes wholesome, right-triumphing-over-wrong books. And I love it! Elsie, the main character, finds she must make a decision between living the life of a cushy, carefree student and social butterfly in her uncle's home or being the help and womanly presence to her father and two brothers in their dilapidated house. My favorite parts of this book is watching Elsie transform a place into a home, and how a loving touch can make a difference in a person's outlook on life. Romance for Elsie really takes the back burner in this novel, and I don't mind. A young woman's love for her family is important, too. And you just see if you get as happy as I do when you read and watch Elsie make herself invaluable as a sister and daughter!

I read this book as an ebook on my Kindle so I can't rate the quality of the printing. This is one of GLH's better stories. A girl who wins the school's junior accolades is redirected away from the world and society to her estranged father and brothers. She proves to both herself and a critic that she is indeed an Honor Girl in not only academics but the home & life. I enjoy when GLH writes about home life rather than her later sensationalized stories (suggested by newspapers, I believe.) The love realized between the main character and her brothers is especially sweet.

Firstly, this book classifies itself as a romance. I'm not into reading romances, but read this one because it was so strongly recommended by a friend. Despite the romance classification, this book is not very romantic at all. Anyone looking for a love story will be mostly dissapointed.

This story is about love, just not romantic love. It's about a girl who learns to love a father and brothers whom she has been estranged from. It's about doing the honorable thing even when there will be no reward. It's about choosing to do the right thing even when it hurts. This is why my friend so strongly recommended the book to me, and why I gave it five stars. I really enjoyed this inspiring book; the author does an excellent job holding the reader's attention with the many choices her characters make.

I think all of Grace Livingston Hill's writings have a lesson. I also think her stories are more for older teen girls, but I like to read themm, too, and I'm a senior citizen. How I wish I'd known about her books when I was a teenager!
Her books are always clean and although they are romance novels, the lessons can be applied to everyday life. This particular book shows what happens when a young girl does something good for her father and brothers.

This is one of the books that GLH wrote for a younger audience, thus there isn't much "romance" in it. There is a potential love interest, but their feelings do not get too intense. In that generation, it was believed that a young woman shouldn't have a "serious boyfriend until she was out of school and ready for possible marriage. It's one of my favorite books. Elsie does her duty without being too preachy and her brothers and father have their life transformed by her love and care. A nice read.
For those looking for "romance" as modern writers see it, this book won't work. This book is one of true romance. Of learning to share one`s life not one`s bed.
I wish t h e typos tree s would take more care though. Simple errors are sad. Gold links instead of golf and changing a character`s name is just bad form. Professionals should be better.

I hope Barbour keeps on reprinting these books. I want every one!
