Let me live in a house by the side of the road Where the race of men go by- The men who are good and the men who . I know there are brook-gladdened meadows ahead, And mountains of wearisome height; That the road passes on through the long afternoon And stretches away to the night.

Let me live in a house by the side of the road Where the race of men go by- The men who are good and the men who are bad, As good and as bad as I. I would not sit in the scorner's seat Nor hurl the cynic's ban- Let me live in a house by the side of the. road And be a friend to ma. And still I rejoice when the travelers rejoice And weep with the strangers that moan, Nor live in my house by the side of the road Like a man who dwells alone.

The sound of barking in the early afternoon drew her out into the backyard. Two dogs were racing toward the trees, Warren G. Harding hot in pursuit of the ugly brown dog. Even with his longer legs, he stood no chance of overtaking her, but she whirled and came toward him, and they met in a tumbling pile of cream and brown

The mystery was decent, there are a lot of references to baseball, there are dogs, there are children who act like normal children (not geniuses or super sleuths), and the side characters are interesting.

Uaha
This mystery is a pleasant, quick read which keeps you guessing. Cogently written in spare, lean prose, the author expertly moves the plot along, though she falls prey to creating certain situations which strain belief. This is a fault of characterization, however, and not of plot. It does not diminish the mystery.
The book is about a young woman , Meg Kessinger, who inherits her great aunt's house in a rural area of Pennsylvania. The house is every thing she has ever wanted and then some. Were it not for the sense that someone is entering her house and moving her things around, as if they were looking for something, she would be perfectly happy.
As it turns out, the mysterious events in her home are tied in to the death of an elderly next door neighbor, who appears to have been the victim of some skullduggery. Meg's sleuthing takes some interesting twists and turns. It should keep the reader guessing as to who is the culprit responsible for the nefarious doings.

This is the story of a young woman who inherits her aunt's house out in the country. She moves in and begins what she hopes will be a peaceful life. Meanwhile things are moved around in her house in the middle of the night and when she's not home. At first she thinks it's just her imagination, then she realizes there is a more sinister force at work -- who is doing it? You'll have to read to find out.
Meanwhile, enter a cast of diverse characters, one of whom is the murderer who murdered the former renter of her aunt's house ... but no one knows she was murdered, they all think she moved off to Boston (not giving anything away here, the victim is killed at the very beginning of the book).
This book is about the slow unraveling of the mystery, wherein the murder is discovered and the killer is unveiled ... Ah, but not until the very end. Ms. Gleiter keeps you guessing all through the book about who the killer is - you don't find out until your reach the final pages of the book when you find out it wasn't who you expected at all. Her writing style is very much like Barbara Michaels, spunky heroine, all sorts of nice people around her, one of whom is evil. Yet this book isn't predictable in any sense.
Set aside a whole day to read and enjoy - you'll enjoy this book so much you won't want to be interrupted. It will also make you want to find all the books this author has written and devour them as well. What a great read!

Ok, first I want to say that the title is actually "A House by the Side of the Road." There was some confusion about the title when it originally got promoted, but if you are looking to purchase the book or borrow it from a library (you should definitely do one of the two), then be ready to look under either "A House by the Side of the Road" or "The House by the Side of the Road." With that out of the way, I want to add my comments about this book. I really loved it. It is my mom's second novel. After reading her first mystery, "Lie Down with Dogs," I said to her, "Mom, there is no way that you could ever write a book that is better than this. Are you going to be disappointed if your next book isn't as good?" Well, I've got to say, this book is no disappointment! It is a slightly different style from her first, so I can't say which is better. All I can say is that they are both excellent! I'm not just saying that because she's my mom, either. (Afterall, what would she do if I said something bad about her books? Stop paying my tuition?) In case you're curious, Jane, the little girl in the book, is modeled after me when I was her age! It is funny to read about her and think, "So this is what my mom thought of me." "A House by the Side of the Road" is awesome. I've read it two times and would read it more often except for the fact that my college professors think they should give me reading to do. They just won't buy my reasoning: "But I have to read this excellent mystery again!" So, I'm not going to summarize the book, because the other reviews have done a lot of that. If you would like to talk about the book or my mom, you are welcome to e-mail me. Hope you enjoy the book as much as I did.

I loved this book. It is set in Pennsylvania, and revolves about an ordinary young woman who inherits an ordinary little house in an ordinary little community. I could really relate to this nice woman who loves her new house, with a climbing rose growing up the porch and a creek in back. She begins an instant friendship with the woman next door, adopts the ugly dog that has been hanging around, and meets two eligible bachelors who seem interested in her. The only problem is that someone seems to be coming in her house and searching for something, and then things start getting worse. Meg is really great: a very practical, good-natured woman for the heroine of a thriller. The dialogue is a little arch and breezy for real life, but other than that, I consider this the perfect suspense book.
