Just because Laura Rider had no children didn't mean her husband was a homosexual, but the people of Hartley, Wisconsin, believed he was, and no babies seemed to them proof.
-- Laura Rider's Masterpiece by Jane Hamilton.
I saw the audio version at the library and found the cover irresistible. Unlike The Book of Ruth, which I thought was brilliant even though it was incredibly depressing, this one is a light and funny romp.
I am really looking forward to your review on this one because I have been wanting to read it.ReplyDelete
