1900s Wisconsin. A small town near Chicago. A dismal winter. A man with a past places a newspaper ad to find “a reliable wife”. A woman answers his ad, a woman with a past... I can’t tell you a single thing more about this book without spoiling it for you. Congruent with the content, the book itself is seductive: full of twists and turns, sex and suspense. It’s a gothic page turner and a wild ride, worth the sleep I lost staying up all night finishing it.

The Rose Bowl is best known for hosting the much anticipated major college football game held every January 1, but to Pasadenans, it is much more than that. It is also an important community center, the stage for many graduations, and the location for numerous concerts, peace rallies, festivals, flea markets, and Fourth of July celebrations. The photographs in this book, many from the archives of the Pasadena Museum of History, highlight the Rose Bowl's memorable sports moments as well as the stadium's unique role in Pasadena's cultural life.
