Book Excerpt: 
. . .int that it was eating time for healthy men, he slowed down and turned his head toward the tonneau. There they were, hunched down under the robe, their heads drawn into their collars like two turtles half asleep on a mud bank.

"Say, how about some lunch?" he demanded. "Maybe you fellows can get along on whisky and sandwiches, but I'm doing the work; and if you notice, I've been doing it for about twelve hours now without any let-up. There's a town ahead here a ways—"

"Drive around it, then," growled Foster, lifting his chin to stare ahead through the fogged windshield. "We've got hot coffee here, and there's plenty to eat. Enough for two meals. How far have we come since we started?"

"Far enough to be called crazy if we go much farther without a square meal," Bud snapped. Then he glanced at the rumpled newspaper and added carelessly, "Anything new in the paper?"

"No!" Mert spoke up sharply. "Go on. You're doing all right . . . Read More

This is not the kind of book that I would normally pick up. It seems like that has been said about most of my more recent book selections, but its true. I probably would have skipped it entirely if it hadn't been part of my "100 Books To Read Before You Die" list, and now that I've finished it, I...more

I stumbled across this work while browsing the table of contents in the anthology of 50 Masterpieces You Have to Read Before You Die, nestled in among writers like Mark Twain, Jane Austin, Daniel DeFoe, and the like. I had never heard of B.M. Bower (pen name of Bertha Muzzy Sinclair, 1871-1940) b...more

Old-fashioned, but entertaining, with a twist I didn’t see coming.

I enjoyed but not necessarily loved this book. The ending was one that I did not see coming. When a writer can pull that off, I respect how well the book was crafted.

Do not understand how this gets to be packaged as one of 50 masterpieces you have to read before you die. It was pleasant enough but on the twee side to me.

Bud used to be a cowboy but when we first meet him he is a driver/mechanic and has been married for a year to Marie, one of the passengers he once drove into the mountains. They knew each other for three weeks before they married, and now they have a one-month old baby.

Whew!

Neither of them were...more

First book I've read by B.M Bower but I'm hooked. I really enjoyed Cabin Fever. Some really interesting twists and good character development.

Overall a nice little tale about a young couple in 1918 who experienced an unrecognized bout of cabin fever. This caused a prideful split which neither really wanted, but were blinded by this common winter malady. The travels of the young man who took to the road went through some surprising and...more

Such a warm story! Well, at first things go wrong, but with the turn of events, it all turns out wonderfully well.
The story is much like a fairy tale, I dare argue, with the cabin fever as its villain.

I loved the characters which were very human and quite detailed. The writing style also complime...more

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...more
