Product Description

Maura Sullivan never intended to set foot in Granger, Ohio, again. But when circumstances force her to return, she must face all the disappointments she tried so hard to leave behind: a husband who ignored her, a congregation she couldn't please, and a God who took away everything she ever loved.Nick Shepherd thought he had put the past behind him, until the day his estranged wife walked back into town. Intending only to help Maura through her crisis of faith, Nick finds his feelings for her never died. Now, he must admit the mistakes he made, how he hurt his wife, and find a way to give and receive forgiveness.As God works in both of their lives, Nick and Maura start to believe they can repair their broken relationship and reunite as man and wife. But Maura has one more secret to tell Nick before they can move forward. It's what ultimately drove her to leave him three years earlier, and the one thing that can destroy the fragile trust they've built.

    As a rule, I read very few books in the Romance genre. However, I enjoyed The Pastor's Wife, by Jennifer AlLee. The story was fresh and appealing, the characters were well developed, and the plot flowed smoothly from beginning to end.

    The author drew me in with her crisp and believable dialogue and fast-paced first chapter. I love the way she gradually unveilled the little community of Granger, Ohio. As Maura became reacquainted with the town, after years of absence, I felt drawn to the people, places, and activities that gave it life. Having lived in a close-knit community, centered around a small church, I could appreciate both the joys and challenges that are part and parcel of being a small-town resident.

    In addition, the love story was well developed and believable. I found myself rooting for Maura and Nick along with their friends and acquaintances in Granger. AlLee, kept me in suspense by withholding one of the the reasons that Maura fled Granger, leaving her husband without offering any apology or explanation.

    The author also does a good job of presenting Maura and Nick's realational struggle to choose forgiveness over bitterness. In the end, truth does set them free, but not without a lot of prayer and humble submission to the Lord on each of their parts.

    I enjoyed reading this book, and will seek to read others by this author.

    This was a nice literary snack. The characters were not well developed, and the plot wasn't filled with twists and turns, but it has a good message. It was simplistic in delivery, likely better for a teen or tween.

    I enjoyed this book. It was very interesting to see the other side of a pastors wife and what they deal with.

    Easy reading but very true in the life and feelings as a Pastor's wife or any wife when the job of the husband seems more important that she does. Study questions good for self analysis as well as group discussion.

    The author did an outstanding job of showing the effects of church, not God, the church (programs, functions, etc.) becoming more important than the family. This does happen too often and it was refreshing to have an author take on this subject.

    And yes! The bathroom scene! :)

    Enjoy!
