A hardcover fictional novel by Sara Ware Bassett. It is entitled Head Winds. This is a 1947 First Edition and has its dust cover. The book's hardcover is blue cloth with white title on the spine.

Miss Phoebe Ann was Belleport's Miss Fixit, and, as the local dressmaker, there was no problem too little or too big that she couldn't cope with. She manages to iron out the difficulties of Joan Jepson's love for Clive Weldon, a wealthy summer transient, capably assisted by Selma, Phoebe Ann's good companion, and proves Joan's heart belongs somewhere else. Miss Bassett's perennial themes of happiness and unselfishness, her happy-ending romances have an established audience.

Sara Ware Bassett (1872 – 1968) was an American author of fiction and nonfiction. Her novels primarily deal with New England characters, and most of them are set in two fictional Cape Cod villages she created, Belleport and Wilton. Her first novel, "Mrs. Christy's Bridge Party", was published in 1907. She subsequently wrote more than 40 additional novels, continuing to write and publish into the late 1950s. Many of her novels focus on love stories and humorously eccentric characters.
