A "forgotten" book so wonderful it is like finding buried treasure. This novel about a family in a small, eastern Montana town overflows with memorable, well-developed characters. The author, who never wrote another novel, surprises the reader with profound insights into human emotions and behavior. Published in 1938 and not reprinted until now, an excellent novel to simply enjoy.
