User Review  - GTTexas - LibraryThing

A saccharine sweet WWI romance without a hint of mystery. Everyone is either long suffering, self sacrificing or a total "cad". It was enjoyable to me for a change of pace. Read full review

With a backdrop of an impending first world war, Dangerous Days deals with the effect of what war has on an individual. Character's developments are good. As usual, war story always has a flip side of it's gory casualties. Thank God this book doesn't loose any characters due to the war except for Joey who died at homeland, nevertheless. The end is a happy one, as one would expect from from this kind of story.

About the author (2000)

Mary Roberts Rinehart was born in the City of Allegheny, Pennsylvania on August 12, 1876. While attending Allegheny High School, she received $1 each for three short stories from a Pittsburgh newspaper. After receiving inspiration from a town doctor who happened to be a woman, she developed a curiosity for medicine. She went on to study nursing at the Pittsburgh Training School for Nurses at Homeopathic Hospital. After graduating in 1896, she began her writing career. The first of her many mystery stories, The Circular Staircase (1908), established her as a leading writer of the genre; Rinehart and Avery Hopwood successfully dramatized the novel as The Bat (1920). Her other mystery novels include The Man in Lower Ten (1909), The Case of Jennie Brice (1914), The Red Lamp (1925), The Door (1930), The Yellow Room (1945), and The Swimming Pool (1952). Stories about Tish, a self-reliant spinster, first appeared in the Saturday Evening Post and were collected into The Best of Tish (1955). She wrote more than 50 books, eight plays, hundreds of short stories, poems, travelogues and special articles. Three of her plays were running on Broadway at one time. During World War I, she was the first woman war correspondent at the Belgian front. She died September 22, 1958 at the age of 82.
