The Pastor’s Wife: Book Review

Title of Book:  The Pastor’s Wife  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥

Author:Jennifer Allee

My favorite quotes from book:

  • “You and I have gone through a lot in the last few years,”
  • “This was your dream”
  • “Hardly. I gave up silly dreams like that a long time ago.”
  • So much for offering up the appearance of a confident businesswoman.
  • She was her own pilot, copilot and navigator. There was no one to tell her how far to drive, where to stop, or what she could or couldn’t see. And she planned to see all the interesting little tourist traps along the way.
  • “Trust God He’ll fix whatever’s broken”

Characters in book: Maura Sullivan, Pastor Nick Shepherd, Wendell Crowley, Rachel Nelson, Lainie Waters, Pastor Chris Zeeble & Miss Harriet Lenore Granger.

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 six years earlier, and the one thing that can destroy the fragile trust they’ve built. ( from back cover)

My Overview: I’ll have to admit that it was the title of this book that drew me in by curiosity! However, as I read from page one to the very last page, I found myself involved with the characters & the people of the community of Granger.
