Meet the Author


Harold Bell Wright (1872–1944) was a preacher whose first novel was so popular he gave up the pulpit to write novels. He claimed that his stories were simply thinly veiled sermons. Many of his books were made into movies, including The Winning of Barbara Worth and The Shepherd of the Hills.
