Opening Sentence of the Day: Laura Rider's Masterpiece


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.


  1. I am really looking forward to your review on this one because I have been wanting to read it.

  2. i like this cover too. so whimsical. i have it on my shelf to tease me. haven't read it yet.
