Train travel…Pullman cars…Romance. That’s what I’ve always thought. But Mr. Lawrence Blakely thought differently-he even thought of writing the Pullman Company.
"If they are built to scale, why not take a man of ordinary stature
as your unit?" I 'wrote mentally. "I can not fold together like
the traveling cup with which I drink your abominable water."
There’s a girl (the girl in the blue dress), an auburn haired mystery woman, our “confirmed bachelor” lawyer, an amateur detective, and of course, a great riddle.
Mary Roberts Rinehart shines in this 1906 tale- her very first mystery.. Can you guess who did it? I must confess I really couldn’t…maybe a fleeting suspicion but that was it.
Pleasantly read by MaryAnne, you can download this free audio-book here or the free e-book in pdf or kindle format here.
Here's what the interior of a Pullman Car looked like-the beds have been made up on the right side only.
I just couldn't resist sharing this illustration of what went under those elegant 1906 ladies dresses. :)What more fashion?
I adore Mary Roberts Rinehart - off to download! I don't know if I've ever properly thanked you for doing these reviews, you've given me so many happy hours - thank you!!!
Another wonderful book review. So neat to read about it!
