"Writing in his happiest vein, Mr. Lincoln tells in "Blowing Clear" one of the finest stories he has given his readers in his long and highly popular career. And yet, though the salt breezes of Cape Cod blow through its pages, this is not merely a sea story. It is the story of a great-hearted man and a son whose birth was shrouded in mystery. It is the tale of a lovable man, and of the delightful group of Cape Cod folk who surround him. John Heath lived the life of a recluse and was a mystery to the village gossips. Out of the past he strove to forget comes a boy —his son. And John Heath opens his heart to the lad. His whole life begins to center in bringing this boy to fine manhood. But simultaneously two blows fall upon John Heath, one through the son he has come tolove, the other out of that same past that has hung like a shadow in the b ackground. It is a gripping situation that develops and Joseph C. Lincoln makes it all very human. A thread of romance develops in the lives of both the father and son; and among the book' most delightful features are those two genuinely humorous characters—Lorenzo Weeks and Huldy Bascom who strivesto save his soul from perdition. For anyone who wishes enjoyable, cheering reading there is to be recommended this novel wnicn reveals Joseph C. Linc oln at his very best." (from the dj).
