I’ve been reading romance novels since my middle school years, but it has only been in the last five years that I’ve really become a fan of the Inspirational market. Part of that was due to changes in the market itself; the books that are coming out now in the genre have a fresher, friendlier approach that encourages entertainment along with edification. The ten books listed below are not all my personal favorites (some are) but they are all books that have had an impact on the genre.
10. Grace Livingston Hill, A Girl to Come Home To
Why? Hill has great name recognition when it comes to Inspirational romance. During her life time (1865-1947) she wrote over a hundred books, many of which are still in print. If the modern Inspirational romance novel has a starting point it is probably one of Hill’s books. I choose this particular novel because it is a personal favorite.
