Read full description of the books:I needed a quiet, easy to focus on book and this one, the sixth in my list of B. M. Bower titles, fit perfectly. Another Eastern girl goes west to Montana, but this time she is accompanied by her beau, an Englishman who is very much in love and expects to convince our Miss Beatrice to marry him. She is not sure she wants to do that, despite (or maybe because of) the pressure from Mom to snag that Lord's title before it gets away.
But Beatrice's brother Dick has invited the whole clan out to the ranch for the summer and you just never know what might happen in all those wide open spaces in Big Sky Country. Well, if you have read a few Bower books, you actually do know what will happen, but it is still great fun to see everything come out just the way it should!
I was a bit annoyed by some aspects of this book, though. There was a young boy here who was so spoiled I wanted to smack him myself, since no one else seemed able to do it. And he talked quite a bit. I don't like reading 'child speak' more than is absolutely necessary. But it was cute for him to say he wanted 'little wheels' for his feet like all the cowboys had.
I also wanted more focus on the cowboy hero Keith. In the other Bower titles I've read, the cowboy was king of the story. Here Miss Beatrice was queen, and frankly she was a bit stuck-up and snooty at first. Keith was around, but sort of in the background except for a few dramatic moments here and there. But he definitely made up for it later. I loved the way he declared himself at last. So romantic....sigh....I fell a little bit in love with him myself just then.
Read information about the authorBertha Muzzy Sinclair or Sinclair-Cowan, née Muzzy, best known by her pseudonym B. M. Bower, was an American author who wrote novels, fictional short stories, and screenplays about the American Old West. Her works, featuring cowboys and cows of the Flying R Ranch in Montana, reflected "an interest in ranch life, the use of working cowboys as main characters (even in romantic plots), the occasional appearance of eastern types for the sake of contrast, a sense of western geography as simultaneously harsh and grand, and a good deal of factual attention to such matters as cattle branding and bronc busting.
Born Bertha Muzzy in Otter Tail County, MN and living her early years in Big Sandy, Montana, she was married three times: to Clayton Bower, in 1890; to Bertrand William Sinclair,(also a Western author) in 1912; and to Robert Elsworth Cowan, in 1921. Bower's 1912 novel Lonesome Land was praised in The Bookman magazine for its characterization. She wrote 57 Western novels, several of which were turned into films.
