hat sort of thing."

Clayton's eyes roamed about the room, where portly Mrs. Haverford was still knitting placidly, where the Chris Valentines were quarreling under pretense of raillery, where Toots Hayden was smoking a cigaret in a corner and smiling up at Graham, and where Natalie, exquisite and precise, was supervising the laying out of a bridge table.

"She would, of course," he observed, rather curtly, and, moving through a French window, went out onto a small balcony into the night.

He was irritated with himself. What had come over him? He shook himself, and drew a long breath of the sweet night air. His tall, boyishly straight figure dominated the little place. In the half-light he looked, indeed, like an overgrown boy. He always looked like Graham's brother, anyhow; it was one of Natalie's complaints against him.

When Roberts is good she can be very good. Dangerous Days comes close, a sentimental novel with enough conflict to perk it up. The heroes and heroines are a bit too fine, and it would profit by losing some thousands of words, but still a pretty good read.


i think its a interesting novel

Simone Simonetti

This book makes a very good read. It will engross you and keep you thinking about it for several days.

The characters are well worked out and their different stories and viewpoints are convincing. The moral struggles they go through make you think about what your own position would have been had you lived during World War I, or any war for that matter.

Throughout the book there are many spelling mistakes, but that doesn't take away the joy of reading.

Leah A. Zeldes

A complex, multi-generational story set at the start of World War I, full of tense families, difficult marriages, thwarted loves and political intrigue.

As America prepares for war, steel magnate Clayton Spencer becomes increasingly aware of the shallowness of his wife and his widening distance from his son, Graham. Meanwhile, Graham struggles to overcome his mother's selfish love and his own weak nature.

A little soap-operaish, but fairly engrossing.




An interesting story of how an American family deals with our country's entry into World War I--the shallow & selfish mother, the silent & proud father, the wastrel son. It is a fascinating character study, and a good read!
