A Reliable Wife, by Robert Goolrick

A first novel of suspense, passion, obsession, and secrets–and also of forgiveness, A Reliable Wife unfolds over one very long rural Wisconsin winter.  Ralph Truitt, a wealthy businessman and widower, advertises for a wife, and Catherine Land, who calls herself “a simple, honest woman,” answers.  But nothing is simple about either one of them; both have hidden agendas and histories, neither is what they seem, and both end up with something different than they expected.  Full of twists and lies told and believed; raw, dark and gothic, this one is a page-turner.
