The Bainbridge Library Book Group will talk about “A Reliable Wife” by Robert Goolrick at their gathering at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25.

Set in rural Wisconsin in 1909, Ralph Truitt stands alone on a train platform waiting for the woman who answered his newspaper advertisement for “a reliable wife.” But when Catherine Land steps off the train from Chicago, she’s not the “simple, honest woman” that Ralph is expecting.
