Like his father before him, Arthur Winthrop is the Headmaster of Vermont’s elite Lancaster School. It is the place he feels has given him his life, but is also the site of his undoing as events spiral out of his control. Found wandering naked in Central Park, he begins to tell his story to the police, but his memories collide into one another, and the true nature of things, a narrative of love, of marriage, of family and of a tragedy Arthur does not know how to address emerges.

The Senator's Wife (Vintage Contemporaries) by Sue Miller, http://www.amazon.com/dp/0307276694/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_wcqJtb0JHDVJM
Sue Miller takes us deep into the private lives of women. And once again, what she discovers is both explosive and transcendent.
The Senator's Wife by Sue Miller- Read this last summer. Great book for the beach. I hear it's not her best book, and I'd be interested to read others by this author
It's a well-known fact that you can't possibly know what goes on within someone else's marriage - or what the unseen glue is that holds certain relationships together. In this carefully delineated novel, Sue Miller gives us a magnifying glass with which to view two seemingly different marriages, and the shocking betrayals that lie within both.
The Senator's Wife - Sue Miller: another brilliant novel from the master of women's literary fiction ...
Another good book by Sue Miller. I enjoy how she describes her characters justifications of their actions.
The Senator's Wife by Sue Miller is the story of two women -- one at the beginning of her marriage, one in her later years -- who live next door to each other. The Senator's Wife is a relatively simple story, but a compelling one nonetheless. Miller proves herself an excellent writer. The Senator's Wife is not groundbreaking, but it is a page turner that is light enough for the beach bag but thought provoking enough for book club.

How To Be a Good Wife - Emma Chapman. But now, something is changing. Small things seem off. A flash of movement in the corner of her eye, elapsed moments that she can’t recall.

How To Be a Good Wife by Emma Chapman http://www.amazon.com/dp/1250018196/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_Wtz0sb1RGMQQCFYC
Review - How to Be A Good Wife by Emma Chapman When I first saw the book title, "How to be A Good Wife" written by Emma Chapman, I was curious and as a wife of 23 years, I knew I had to read it. After all, I consider myself to be a very good wife so I had see how I compared to whoever the wife in this book would be.
The title of Emma Chapman’s first novel, “How to Be a Good Wife,” is beyond ironic. What we encounter here in Marta Bjornstad is a woman clinging to domesticity as though to a flimsy plank in a turbulent sea. Marta is going under, and the power of this extraordinary book resides in large part in its unwavering focus on her deepening dislocation from the world around her, from her adult son and in particular from her husband.
How to be a good wife by Emma Chapman. Marta's husband has always taken care of her, and she has always done everything she can to be a good wife--as advised by a dog-eared manual given to her by Hector's aloof mother on their wedding day. But now, something is changing. Small things seem off...As Marta's visions persist and her reality grows more disjointed, it's unclear if the danger lies in the world around her, or in Marta herself.

Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, GA - Statue of the Bird Girl. With the popularity of the book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt, the statue had to be moved to the Telfair Museum of Art. Originally sculpted for a family in Massachusetts.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil-- another pinner says: The movie scarcely did this brilliant book justice. It's the true story of a murder that became the scandal of Savannah, Georgia. It's worth reading for the descriptions of Savannah alone (which also happens to be one of my favorite cities) add murder, intrigue and colorful characters and it makes a great read.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil - enjoyed reading this after a visit to Savannah. Now I'll watch the movie.

The Headmasters Wife by Thomas Christopher Greene. Quick read; was somewhat disturbing through the first half and then got more interesting in the second half once you start reading it through a different lens. (Finished 6/10/15)
The Headmaster's Wife ~ by: Thomas Christopher Greene - Greene's haunting tale tracks the unraveling of a marriage. It starts eerily, with a naked man's arrest in New York City's Central Park, then twists back in time through love, grief, betrayal, and love again.
The Headmaster's Wife: Thomas Christopher Greene Luminous and atmospheric, bringing to life the tight-knit enclave of a quintessential New England boarding school, the novel is part mystery, part love story and an exploration of the ties of place and family. Beautifully written and compulsively readable, The Headmaster’s Wife stands as a moving elegy to the power of love as an antidote to grief.
The Headmaster's Wife, by Thomas Christopher Greene - Arthur Winthrop, headmaster Lancaster School, is found wandering around naked in snow-covered Central Park in New York City, and as he explains to the authorities what brought him to this disturbing situation you'll think the book is about his affair with a female student named Betsy Pappas. Nothing is as it appears. It's unpredictable and well written. Recommend

Aunt Dimity's Death, by Nancy Atherton. Although written with the framework of a cozy mystery, this cute book is really about grief and how people don't always line up with your perceptions of them. This book is a new favorite of Caroline's. Check it out at Argenta!
The Aunt Dimity series is just good fun, and exactly the kind of book to curl up with on a cold evening.
I love this series of mysteries. Just simply entertaining and they all include recipes, which I have actually made and they are great.
I'm not sure if I liked this or not - I listened to the audiobook and so disliked the reader that it was hard for me to tell if the books are written as silly as it sounded. Might give the second book in the series a try at some point.
Aunt Dimity's Death by Nancy Atherton. Lori Shepherd thought Aunt Dimity was just a character in a bedtime story, until she learns that she has been named in the woman's will. A cozy, gentle mystery that has enchanted readers for years!
Aunt Dimity's Death (Aunt Dimity Mystery, #1) by Nancy Atherton. Wonderful series but this first book is just beautifully plotted. Not just a mystery, but a reconstruction of events in World War II that helps the heroine, Lori Shepherd, understand her past and move on to a different life. It sounds corny but it's really not. Beautiful British local color and magical touches like the ghost and Reg the Bunny. Charming but with a realistic edge that keeps readers aware of Lori's struggles.
Lori Shepherd thought Aunt Dimity was just a character in a bedtime story...Until the law firm of Willis Willis summons her to a reading of the woman's will. Down-on-her-luck Lori learns she's about to inherit a sizable estate--if she can discover the secret hidden in a treasure trove of letters in Dimity's English country cottage. What begins as a fairy tale becomes a mystery as Aunt Dimity's spirit leads Lori on an otherworldly quest to discover how, in this life, true love can conquer all.
