It’s interesting that the story is set in Germany.
Librivox recording of a public-domain text. It’s interesting that the story is set in Germany. Books written around this period tend to be formulaic-valiant, doomed heroes and heroines about to be shattered by the brutality of war. This story portrays an aspect of pre-war Germany that’s more nuanced and interesting. There are no caricatures in this story. Even the villains have relatable feelings. Maryann does an outstanding job of conveying themes that are more complex than the usual Rinehart plots. Her reading adds a dimension to the story that makes it more meaningful. Thank you very much Maryann.

In 1911, after the publication of five successful books and two plays, the Rineharts moved to Glen Osborne, Pennsylvania, where they purchased a large home at the corner of Orchard and Linden Streets called "Cassella. Before they moved into the house, however, Mrs. Rinehart had to have the house completely rebuilt because it had fallen into disrepair.
Atypical of Mary Roberts Rinehart's books, this is not a mystery. Rinehart herself was quite familiar with financial struggle. Her mother took in boarders to make ends meet, and money was always short. It's a slice of life among young Americans in Vienna just before the Great War. And it's a love story very much of the period.
Mary Roberts Rinehart: Adventurous Journalist, Writer of Romantic Fiction & Crime Novels. This is a very remarkable novel. Siebensterngasse, the Seven Star Street of the title, is today a lively shopping street - but it still has some Gothic charm. and a riveting good story, too!
Mary Roberts Rinehart: Adventurous Journalist, Writer of Romantic Fiction & Crime Novels. Mary Roberts Rinehart is often referred to as the American Agatha Christie, but that is doing an injustice to Rinehart as well as to Christie. As enjoyable as Rinehart’s crime novels are, they never reach the mastery and cunning of Christie’s polished gems. On the other hand, Rinehart wrote so much more besides crime novels, that it would be a crime to reduce her to those. and a riveting good story, too!
