Library Book: A Reliable Wife
A Reliable Wife is the story of Catherine Land and Ralph Truitt. Ralph Truitt, sick of being alone, advertises in the paper that he wants a reliable wife. And the woman who answers the ad is Catherine Land. She claims to be a missionary's daughter, but in truth she is far from that. Her plan is to marry Truitt, a wealthy man, and slowly poison him; once he is dead she will leave a wealthy widow.
Of course, things don't go as planned. I won't say more because I don't want to give away any spoilers. But wow, this was an excellent story. A Reliable Wife is well worth the read. :)
