I wasn't too sure about this book when I read the overview but it was offered for free so I decided to give it a try. What a pleasant surprise it turned out to be. A wonderful story of forgiveness, second chances and finding the talents that God blessed you with. Highly recommend this.

What a breath of fresh air.To read a Christian book that keeps you wanting to get to the end to see how these two people can trust in God and know it will be OK.

If you're like me, and have a close friend going through a marriage crisis, this book would be a very nice gift. Isn't it hard to forgive? And when you think that you have reconciled, spats end up bringing the past back to the table. Relationships are hard, especially being a Pastor's wife, and this book really hits home on several important notes, and I highly recommend it.

Interesting and well written. Sometimes we put people in leadership roles on pedastals, and we forget they are human also, and make mistakes, just like everyone else. This story, is about reconciliation from misunderstandings years old.

How true for pastor's wives. We really do become second sometimes. This is a very heartwarming story of how the pastor and his wife can become alienated without even realizing it. Forgiveness comes in various forms, and this book reminds us how to forgive.

This was a fast read for any frequent reader. The story was enjoyable and completely realistic. At times it was a little emotional towards the end but it also had a way of bringing a sad chapter round to a light and funny chapter. I recommend this book for any one, but especially for those who are part of a family involved in ministry. Enjoy!

I love the romance genre but sometimes feel the heroes and heroines of today's fiction have been dressed in Barbie and Ken clothes and live in Monopoly houses. Romance spiced with multicultural issues, tension, and edgy subjects reaches out from novel pages and grabs me tight. Romance like AlLee's new novel, The Pastor's Wife. Maura Sullivan, a California girl waitressing in Da's restaurant, thought she'd found all she ever wanted in pastoral student Nick Shepherd, who rescues her from a bully and in the process steals her heart. Nick and Maura say, "I do," and move to Granger, Ohio, and the judgmental eyes of a small-town congregation. When Maura slips and falls in her pastor's wife high-heels, Nick doesn't help her up-in fact, he doesn't even realize she's on the floor. With guilt, hurt, and disappointment sitting in the passenger seat of her car, Maura says good-bye to Granger.without saying goodbye to Nick. An eccentric parishioner changes everything when the terms of her will summon Maura back to Granger, Nick, and the mutterings of more than a few local characters. Maura struggles to survive, but God offers her a chance to thrive. Can Maura-and Nick-let go of themselves and others' expectations and let God unite the two in blissful matrimony? With wistful yet tightly woven prose, Jennifer Al Lee pulls back the drapes in Christian pastorages and lets us see the aching and very real humans who caretake our souls. You will laugh and cry your way through The Pastor's Wife, an amazing book of romance, social issues, and faith.

When I first started reading this book, I didn't care for the pastor's wayward wife. I thought her rather selfish and didn't understand how she could marry a minister and not understand that he was at the mercy of his congregation--- it was his calling, after all... Anyhow, as I got to know her, I began to understand, and I began to cheer her on. Being a minister's wife and having to navigate all the many personalities in the church can be daunting. She wasn't prepared for it when she first married, but coming back after 6 years, she knew more what to expect. Anyhow, I loved this story and would love to see a sequel, perhaps Lainie or Pastor Chris???

This was a pleasant read and does hold true for first-time pastor's ambitions and fears. The early-on anxiety to be all things to all parishioners. However, maturity in any job takes time. Some momentary insights into "the life", however, whenever the plot is shakey, is not the time to play the God card. It's always present and first.

Traditionally in romance, marriage is either the climax of a story, or it is left out of the story altogether. In this romance, the story begins six years AFTER marriage, when a woman returns to town and meets up with her estranged husband, who she hasn't spoken to in a long time. Naturally, the plot thrusts them together, and how it ends (being a romance story) is pretty predictable. That being said, I really enjoyed HOW Jennifer AlLee gets the story to that ending. It's handled with sensitivity, simplicity, and love, and along the way both characters learn things about themselves, each other, and how God works. There's also something very unpredictable that happens AFTER the inevitable reunion. It's something that I definitely didn't see coming, although the author does a wonderful job of foreshadowing it and keeping the reader guessing. Having grown up in church myself, a lot of the circumstances and situations described in this story felt very familiar to me, and pleasantly so. Of course, being an American story, many of the Americanisms were glaringly obvious and a little disjarring to me. I'm still not entirely sure what chowder is, and I chuckled at the spelling of aluminum (that's aluminium to you and me!). And my favourite: a baked dish consisting of a sweet filling, and served as a dessert, is a TART. A PIE is served piping hot with gravy or chips (French Fries to the American readers), and most often contains meat, unless you're a vegetarian! Still, all these little idiosyncrasies added to the charm of the story, which I think was quite well written and very well told. I would recommend it to anyone in a relationship, or who would like to know more about God. And no, there's no sex in it... although it's alluded to a couple times!
