A Reliable Wife

A Reliable Wife - Robert Goolrick This is a very dark book about three very unhappy people. And yet . . . the last few pages almost make the whole, dark journey worth it. Almost, I say. It truly was difficult reading this book; there were many times I put it down, loathe to pick it up again. But, I kept coming back. Goolrick writes such wonderful character studies; you feel the anguish, the malaise, the disdain, the hurt with each character. While I can't recommend this book for someone who wants a light read, it is recommended for anyone who enjoys character-driven stories.
