The Singing Hill;
Little, Brown & Company: 1939.


        On Sharon’s shoulders rested many of the responsibilities of her family’s Idaho ranch. She was eighteen, pretty, and whenever her work could spare her she wandered off to her secluded hill and found forgetfulness in singing.

        Sharon had a spendthrift artist father in New York who had to be supported; there was a neighboring ranchman who was ruthlessly determined to win her hand. One day –and this makes the grand story –a stranger appeared on the hill. He heard Sharon singing and became interested. Romance? Mystery? Here is plenty of both in a really entertaining novel.

        This is one of B.M. Bower’s best. Bower fans, western story fans, and romantic novel fans know that this is good news.
