Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 4/22/2011

    " A gentle story about sacrifice in WWI that leads to an unexpected (at least to me) but completely believable output. One of my all time favorite stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rena | 1/25/2011

    " I usually prefer my romances to be a bit more steamy, but I still really like this author. Her practical, innocent way of portraying the heroine is really attractive. The hero is usually a serious, steady gentleman who then falls dramatically in love with the naive heroine. So cute! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 1/4/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. I was looking for a story about WWI and found this one wonderful. At the beginning it was a bit hard to get into, but it ended strong. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/26/2010

    " I thought this book was sweet and old fashioned if a little slow (and maybe a tad boring). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 8/2/2010

    " It took me a little while to get into this book. The style of writing is not my favorite, but it was a really good story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 6/21/2010

    " Slow start but worth reading on. Good ending "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Avary | 3/6/2009

    " First published in 1918, this is a sweet romance, set in 1914, early in WWI. I found it by accident as a book on CD at the Library and thoroughly enjoyed reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 10/21/2008

    " This is a tender sweet book. It is written at the turn of the century and gives insights of the Great War or WWI. It is an uplifting love story that is a pleasure to read. It makes me want to read more of Mary Roberts Rinehart. "

About the Author
Author Mary Roberts Rinehart

Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876–1958), born in Pittsburgh, was a novelist and playwright best known for her mystery stories, which combined humor with ingenuity. The success of her novels The Circular Staircase and The Man in Lower Ten established her reputation as an important American mystery writer; at one time she was the highest paid writer in America. In addition to mysteries, she wrote comic tales, plays, romances, and travel books, some of which reflected her experiences as a correspondent during World War I. One critic called her autobiography, My Story, her finest book.
