"Miranda" by Grace Livingston Hill

Grace Livingston Hill's "Miranda"is the last book of the "Marcia Schuyler" trilogy. In this book, we learn about Miranda Griscomb's past as she tries to avoid an unpleasant future.

While we present several of these Edward Lamson Henry images in color, they originally appeared in tinted monochrome (except for the color frontispiece). 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!
