About Book

From the Publisher
In this sequel to Wright's bestselling Shepherd of the Hills, Dan Matthews, son of Sammy and Young Matt, becomes the new minister of the Midwestern town of Corinth. The peaceful town is turned askew when the town's new nurse, the minister's romantic interest, comes to the aid of an outcast woman after her suicide attempt. Dan battles his conscience between his role as the spiritual puppet of the church elders and his strong desire to prescribe a dose of heavy ministry to his ailing congregation.

Book Description
Harold Bell Wright, (May 4, 1872 - May 24, 1944), was a best-selling American writer of fiction, essays, and non-fiction during the first half of the 20th century. Although mostly forgotten or ignored after the middle of the 20th century, he is said to have been the first American writer to sell a million copies of a novel and the first to make $1 million from writing fiction. Between 1902 and 1942 Wright wrote 19 books, several stage plays, and many magazine articles. More than 21 movies were made from Wright's stories, or claimed to be, including Gary Cooper's first major movie, The Winning of Barbara Worth (1926) and the John Wayne film, The Shepherd of the Hills (1941).

It was as though she had flung wide open the door to that sacred, inner chamber at which only the most intimate of her friends were privileged to knock. He had come into the field of her life in the most commonplace manner--through the natural incident of their meeting. He should have stopped there, or should have been halted by her. The hour should have been spent in conversation on such trivial and commonplace topics as usually occupy strangers upon such occasions, and they should have parted strangers still. She felt that after this exhibition of herself, as she termed it in her mind, she at least was no stranger to him.

About the Author
Harold Bell Wright, born in Rome, New York, in 1872, did not lead a life of luxury. He was a self-taught man who had to overcome many challenges, including his constant fight against tuberculosis. While still young, Wright traveled extensively. Being a religious man, he decided to spend his time as a traveling minister, eventually settling down with permanent churches in Missouri, California, and Kansas. His religious practices led him to write the first of many books, all of which address particular problems. His main goal for writing lay within his desire to write about the goodness of mankind.
