Overview

K is the main character, a respected, famous surgeon who drops out of his profession at the peak of his career because he loses faith in his abilities. He emerges in "Small Town, America" as a non-entity drifter, working as a clerk.

He then proceeds to act like a junior social worker, counseling and trying to "fix" everyone in sight who has mental conflicts, marital problems, un-wanted pregnancies, death in the family, moral issues, and the like.
When he finally emerges from his self-imposed exile, he does get Sidney Page, working to become a nurse who is the woman he loves - but we knew he would from the start.....didn't we??
The joys and troubles of their young love are told with that keen and sympathetic appreciation!

This publication of K. by ARose Books is not a scanned document, but one that has been carefully edited. It includes the original illustrations plus new, custom ones from the publisher. The text has been specially formatted to present a very nice book to public. It also includes a short biography of the author, Mary Roberts Rinehart.

Masterfully-spun tale about the world of human experience -- romance, mystery, service, selfishness, shame, redemption, and the rest -- to be found in one small neighborhood. Rinehart is an expert at slow-burning suspense, and even though you feel sure things must all come out right in the end, enough goes badly wrong to make you doubt it, after all. Some scanned errors, but plenty readable. On another note, what is with the creeps and weirdos who use the review system for personal messages and game-playing? Do you think there's a chance B&N might someday delete that stuff, so that those of us who are actually interested in reading books don't have to wade through all of the idiocy to find an authentic review? So, so annoying...

I believe this book was scanned as there are many many characters and numbers thrown about. This doesn't hinder the readability of the book. I liked the book a lot. I enjoyed it as a period piece that I could reflect upon the beginning of the 1900's with the beginnings of autos, mention of "the canal," road houses, ... it was nice to learn more of the times. I enjoyed the characters greatly and felt like one of the neighborhood. I did not realize that this was suppossed to be a mystery. I though most things were fairly evident. I though this was a very nice novel. As I said, I really enjoyed the book, the time period, the characters, the descriptive view of life at the time, and many of the thoughtful analysis of various subjects matters. I hope others enjoy it as much as I.
