Dirt-poor, sensitive as poets, and proud as kings, the Powell family has lived on a Georgia mountaintop for generations. Then, during the 1960's, young Ursula Powell's father convinces the Tiber family, owners of everything in nearby Tiberville, to commission a huge iron sculpture of a bear for the town. Decades later the strange sculpture - rejected by the townspeople and left to rust on the Powell farm - symbolizes a family's failure and thwarted dreams. But, unknown to Ursula, it is now worth such a huge fortune that the artist's embittered son, Quentin Ricconni, is coming to reclaim it . . . and to change everything Ursula believes about the past, the choices that break a heart, and the redeeming powers of art and love.

About the Author:

Deborah Smith, a sixth-generation Georgia native, is a former newspaper reporter and editor. She has more than 1.5 million copies in print of her previous novels, including the bestselling A Place to Call Home. Deborah is married and lives in the mountains of North Georgia.

From AudioFile:

Chronicling the parallel tales of two seemingly disparate individuals, ON BEAR MOUNTAIN is the most recent novel by Southern writer Deborah Smith. A bizarre sculpture of a bear is created by an eccentric artist and ends up in rural Georgia. The tale details the lives of the artist's son, who lives in New York City, and the daughter of the sculpture's eventual owner, who lives on rich farmland in the hills of Georgia. The relationship of these two individuals is told largely in the first person. Dick Hill narrates the male voices and thoughts while Susie Breck delivers the female. Although the narrators are polished, the sudden shifts in voice, often in the middle of a passage, are distracting. Both readers use subtle vocal changes to designate the different moods and characters. B.J.L. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
