A Reliable Wife (P.S.)
Bargain Book Copy
Set in a small Wisconsin town still crumbling a decade after the great depression of the 1890s, this is the story of Ralph Truitt, a wealthy businessman who advertises for "a reliable wife" in newspapers across America. The woman whom he chooses, Catherine Land, describes herself as "a simple, honest woman," but in truth she is both complex and devious. Her plan in accepting the marriage offer is simple: she will win this man's devotion, and then, over time, poison him and leave Wisconsin a wealthy widow. What she has not counted on, though, is the passion she finds in this seemingly forthright man - a man who harbors secrets of his own . . .
