Overview

Set in a small and quaint New England town in the late nineteenth century, Bylow Hill tells of the complex web of relationships between a number of inhabitants.

The focus is on two families in particular--the Byingtons and the Winslows. The young people of these families, including Ruth and Leonard Byington and Arthur and Godfrey Winslow, must all face the realities of love, loyalty, and loss.

Isabel Morrow, a winsome maiden, is pursued by both Leonard and Arthur and eventually marries the latter, an up-and-coming clergyman. The whole town believes their life must be flawless, but Isabel's contentment and devotion are seriously challenged when Arthur's mental state dangerously falters.

George W. Cable strikes a personal chord with his touching writing style. Bylow Hill artfully expresses the impermanence of happiness and seeming perfection. Tragedy and misfortune lurk even below majestic elms and in harmonious homes, next to lovely frozen rivers and behind picturesque New England charm.

Meet the Author

One of the greatest and most celebrated Southern writers of his day, George Washington Cable (1844-1925) helped lead the local-color movement of the late 1800s with his pioneering use of dialect and his skill in the short-story form. After serving in the Confederate army, he began to write for the New Orleans Picayune. Cable has been called the most important Southern artist working in the late-nineteenth century, as well as the first modern Southern writer. A complete listing of his books published by Pelican is available by request.
