This is a book for and about people who love books. By turns hopeful and heartbreaking, this stunning historical fiction kept me up well past my bedtime. I couldn't bear to finish it, but I couldn't put it down.

I love books where I keep saying to myself, “I didn’t know that!”.   What is the connection between Siamese twins Chang and Eng and Andy Griffith?  And Political Firsts Who Didn’t Make Your High School History Book. And The Graveyard Of Disappeared and Dead Sitcom Stars.  The death of Thomas Paine.  And so….much…history.  I love this book!


Poetry Open Mic

Join us for an afternoon of poetry hosted by Phoenix Books Rutland’s own Bianca Amira Zanella. Come to read, come to listen, or come for both! Those interested in reading can sign up at the door.

In Pride and Prejudice, Charlotte Lucas chooses with her eyes wide open to marry Mr. Collins, the unctuous clergyman who has nothing to recommend him but the ability to provide her with a household of her own.  In The Clergyman's Wife, Molly Greeley pauses to consider the backstory and consequences of this choice.  The is a gentle story, notable for the author's clear, lyrical writing and consideration of the real financial challenges facing women in Jane Austen's day, as well as her empathy for the characters - especially, and perhaps surprisingly, Mr. Collins - without letting them off the hook for their moral choices.  With a light touch, wisdom, and care, Greely explores questions that provide a richer understanding of history and of our own lives.
