Crown of Life offers a fictionalization of her life from her decision to go to nursing school despite her parents wishes to her eventual marriage to Dr. Rinehart and her adventure through Glacier National Park. Crown of Life certainly offers an exciting glimpse into the life of Mary Roberts Rinehart. Ages 12 and up
