About the Author

Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876 - 1958) was an American writer, often called the American Agatha Christie, although her first mystery novel was published 14 years before Christie's first novel in 1920. Rinehart is considered the source of the phrase "The butler did it" from her novel The Door (1930), although the novel does not use the exact phrase. Rinehart is also considered to have invented the "Had-I-But-Known" school of mystery writing, with the publication of The Circular Staircase (1908).

I've enjoyed MRR's novels but this is not a novel. It is historical reporting of the conditions at he war "front". Very, very sad & therefore depressing. I read half of the book & since everywhere she went was the same I finally gave up on it.
