The medical profession is supplying background for first rate novels—and this combines the authenticity of first hand knowledge with the sureness of touch of Mrs. Rinehart at her best....A meaty novel (nary a whiff of mystery) about the two forces in a doctor’s life, his love of his profession at odds with his love of a woman. Always the profession comes to thwart his romance, circumstances drive him into another marriage and it is through the wife he does not love that his career is cut off and through his rehabilitation that he secures the woman he loves. Detailed picture of the steps up the professional ladder, with the battles against politics, financial pressure, etc. Good entertainment, with more of substance than most—and will appeal to those who like the medical background.—Kirkus Reviews.

Like some of the author’s other romances, this one was originally serialized. This particular book appeared in Good Housekeeping magazine which purchased the rights for the sum of $75,000. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Rinehart, Mary Roberts

Author Image

Mary Roberts Rinehart (August 12, 1876–September 22, 1958) was an American writer, often called the American Agatha Christie. Rinehart published her first mystery novel The Circular Staircase in 1908, which introduced the "had I but known" narrative style. Rinehart is also considered the source of "the butler did it" plot device in her novel The Door (1930), although the exact phrase does not appear in her work.
