Silver Bow Belles

If you can get your hands on a remaining copy, The Sisters by Myron Brinig is a book sistersworth reading. Published in 1937, and made into a movie by the same name, this wonderful novel is about three attractive sisters who grew up in a small town in Montana during the early 20th century. Their father is a pharmacist and mother, a housewife. Together, they live in a small apartment over the drugstore.

The story is told by a young man who knew the family as a boy after an unexpected visit with the sisters many years later. Even though they are cut from the same cloth, the Elliott sisters are different individuals. They are strong women whose lives take dissimilar paths.

This is a wonderful book which captures more than the story of three lives; it immortalizes the life of a country at the turn of the century planting and expanding its roots in the soil of a growing nation. I hope you will be able to read it and enjoy it as much as I did.  Oh how I love resurrecting old books!

      I am glad you enjoy the old books as much as do! This is a long one, almost 600 pages. If you have seen the movie, you will note the book is so much better! Please share your thoughts after reading this if possible. Thanks!
