I've only read one other B.M. Bower novel, which I thought was OK, but didn't "wow" me. I decided to give her another try, and I am SO glad I chose Cabin Fever. It's not a romance, well not really, and the characters are so well written that they just suck you right into their lives, and make you care about them. The twist at the end I didn't see coming, which is always nice.

One other thing - B.M. Bower is totally on point with her "turn of phrase" game in this book, which I am a HUGE sucker for

Different from what I expected. Good western with good character development. The pace was slow and much of it bogged down a bit, but some of that was to develop the character personalities. I would probably have given it three stars until it came together at the end with a totally unexpected conclusion.
I'd recommend it.

This was an interesting story about a man who quarrels with his young wife and goes out into the world to try to forget her.

My sister-in-law, who's book recommendations have always proved fruitful in the past, just lent this 1944 edition to me~~I'll rate it when completed!

Ok, it's a delightful read, with a surprising little twist at the end to leave you feeling "happily-ever-after." I'm not a fan, usually, of this period, but still--enjoyed it enough to recommend!

B. M. Bower wrote a lot of books. This one is one of her earliest (1918). It is worth reading if only for the glimpse of life in a certain part of the United States a hundred years ago.
