"Marcia Schuyler" by Grace Livingston Hill

Grace Livingston Hill's "Marcia Schuyler" was based on a family story. It became her first big success as an author and began a career that lasted a lifetime.

While we present several of these Edward Lamson Henry images in color, they originally appeared in tinted monochrome. The web doesn't do Henry's vivid colors justice. There's nothing more amazing than standing in front of a real E. L. Henry masterpiece—the colors are breathtaking!
