Silverhill - Phyllis A. Whitney

Aunt Arvilla says:


Though of course it was beginning to sound old-fashioned even in the Twenties.  Perhaps that was the last of the sentimental, romantic shows everyone used to love.  All those dreadful young novelists were beginning to appear and influence everything -- Hemingway and Fitzgerald and Dos Passos and Dreiser.  I never liked them, really.  I liked George Barr McCutcheon much better.
