Come Join Us for the Colbern Road Evening Book Club
September 21, 2012
This month, the Colbern Road Evening Book Club will be discussing A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick. Join us Wednesday, September 26th at 7:00 p.m. to discuss this New York Times Bestseller.
In 1907, Ralph Truitt places a notice in a Chicago paper looking for a "reliable wife." He’s lonely, wealthy, and needs someone to love, someone he can grow old with and take care of. The woman who answers the ad, Catherine Land, responds as an honest missionary’s daughter who has no other prospects and promises to be a good wife. But she’s anything but authentic. She has a past, but so does he. When they meet, they have no idea what they’ve gotten themselves into.
She’s got a plan to get rid of Ralph and keep his money, but he’s got a plan, too. Who will be successful and who will lose everything? Read Goolrick’s historical, juicy novel and tell us what you think.
