This novel is set in 1907 against the back drop of a dreary Wisconsin winter. This is a story of a widower who places an ad in the paper for a “reliable wife” and a woman who responds to the posting. Catherine Land, the woman has an agenda but the convoluted plot slowly unravels through the reading of the book. It is filled with suspense and intrigue and is sure to keep you captivated.
This book was a real page turner. The tone reminded me a little of Daphne Du Maurier’s Rebecca. You fly through it just because you want to know what happens to the characters in the book.
