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.

This is a tale about a good young man and woman who prevail over the evil social forces in the town of “Fairlands”—the thinly disguised town of Redlands, California, where Wright lived. The novel explores what Wright views as the false world of artists, writers, critics, and their wealthy patrons. The author uses the story to express criticism of realism and naturalism in literary expression.
