Reviews of : A Poor Wise Man by Mary Roberts Rinehart PDF Book
Inside this Book – For the first few chapters, A Poor Wise Man seems to be shaping up as a star-crossed romance between the daughter of wealthy industrialists and a middle-class drugstore clerk. It turns out to be an alternate-history imagining of what a Bolshevik revolution in a post-WWI America would look like. Well. Lily Cardew, returning home from doing Red Cross work during the war, finds herself feeling restless and unable to fit back into the familiar but rather empty social life of her wealthy family. Looking to occupy herself and to assert her independence from her harsh grandfather, she decides to visit an estranged family member, and ends up falling unwittingly into dangerous company among the leaders of an anarchist group—and also into an extremely unwise romance with a man who is patently The Wrong Man. Meanwhile, William Wallace Cameron, the young man who became Lily’s good friend during their war work together and is secretly in love with her, is drawn into the burgeoning political upheaval from the other end, so to speak, and eventually becomes a key figure in the movement working to stem the planned revolt.
Inside this book –A Poor Wise Man PDF Book by Mary Roberts Rinehart – I’m not sure how much of a “thriller” this is, but it’s definitely political. This novel is set in 1919 USA, just after the end of WWI and following on the heels of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. As I find so frequently represented in literature, the U.S. in actuality has come full circle politically over the course of 100 years. The more conservative “old guard” is struggling to stave off Communism/Socialism, while the “newcomers” (including a massive influx of foreigners) tries to overthrow the status quo and share the wealth! In so many respects, this novel reflects the United States today.
