This is the first GLH book I ever read and it remains my favorite, after having read most of the others. Again, we have a poor family--father deceased, mother very ill, numerous children--being taken care of by the oldest daughter on her small stenographer's salary. The dilemma is that their cheap rented house is about to be torn down so they must move in a few weeks. But how can they do this without money? Taking her only savings (10 cents), the oldest daughter takes advantage of an unexpected afternoon off from work to ride the train out to the country in the faint hope of finding something suitable and affordable. Once well out in the country, she overhears a conversation between other travelers about a barn in sight from the train tracks, and decides to get a closer look. Impossible though it seems to her at first, the lovely setting seems to be just what is needed to regain her mother's health and provide the children with space to play outdoors. Quickly tracking down the owner, she meets with his handsome son and timidly proposes the rental of the barn for their home. He is immediately sensitive to her dignity and hesitancy and need, and goes out of his way to help her and her family. The description of the barn remodeling is fun, with several side stories and characters. The romance is slow in developing, but results in the usual GLH happy ending.

This is not a true copyrighted version of The Enchanted Barn. It is scanned and copied. There are many, many missing pages and the last several pages of the book are not included!!! How does it end? If you care, don't buy from this supplier.
Absolutely appalling that this lousy copy would make its way to Amazon!

I love the Grace Livingston Hill books. The woman says things in books that I've never ever heard anyone talking about. I love her boldness. I own two shelves of her books. If I heard of any more of them, I'd buy them in a heartbeat. But not this edition. I was so disappointed with all the rotten work that whoever put into it to get it into digital shape. I even wrote a letter to Amazon to complain. They sent me back a letter telling me to write them a letter, noting each page and line position telling them what the type actually said, and what it should be changed to. (I may not be remembering accurately here...but it was something "like" that. So I began to read the enchanted barn story all over again. I made many notations. But then I suddenly realized that my job is not as an editor. I am not a typesetter. All I am is a customer. Phooey on them!

I thought by putting it on my Kindle that I was in seventh heaven. Putting my favorite author into a format that was easy to read and to have always in good condition without having to be concerned with the pages coming out of the spine. Or old paper being fragile.

But this book? Lousy. thank you. It is not the author. I repeat: it is not the author. It just makes me super sad that whoever did such a bad job on the book actually got paid good money for doing it. Amazon, you took an excellent book and allowed somebody to really do a very poor job of making it digital.

I suggest that you go ahead and spend the money and buy an actual paper book. Then when it gets old, and the pages start falling out, just buy another paper book. I am quite tolerant of bad typesetting. But when it happens up to several times a page....I'm done with it. This is bad.

I have read every book Grace Livingston Hill has written, more than once. I always enjoy The Enchanted Barn and it is one of my favorite GLH books for it's lovely imagery, character development and Cinderella story charm.

This book is one of my all-time favorites. I've lost count of how many times I have read it over the years. Yes, it's a little corny in places, but it's also surprisingly educational, giving a look into what the world was like a century-plus ago. And a very different world it was. This time I caught that our young heroine worked six full days a week. I didn't realize that was how it was. How much we take for granted.

I still find this book a relaxing escape. The people are good to know, and I admit freely the great stone barn plays out one of my long time fantasies. The proselytizing is palatable, less tediously preachy than many of Mrs. Hill's other works.

It's a time and place I enjoy visiting every time. For a relaxing escape from the modern rush and a happy ending, you can't beat it. It's a mini-vacation and it's free. Who could ask for more?

The Enchanted Barn is one of the best books ever written by G.L.H.. She covers everything from a girls responsiblity to family with a sick mother and no father to her job loyality. In trying to find a better home to live out of the city she also finds the love of her life. A must read and I'll bet you'll want to read it more than once. I have.

This is my favorite GHL bookI have read it five times ormore the story is just as fresh as it was the first timeI read it. It is a wonderful story of family life and how they stick together in the time of adversity, even if they have to live in a barn. Their faith in God and each other makes it a very heartwarming story in the style that GHL is famous for.
