Rectors Wife - 2/180 Author:Joanna Trollope Anna has been everything a priest's wife should be. But when her husband, Peter, fails to gain promotion to Archdeacon, Anna rebels, and tastes independence for the first time since she left university.
This book gives you insight into the life of a British Rector's wife. I never realized how much they are expected to do for the church without recognition! The heroine is living this restricted life, she comes to realize her unhappiness, and does something about it.
Very interesting novel based on one woman's attempt to find herself while dealing with the assigned role that comes with her husband's career. I was left reflecting on the expectations for a wife that come with a husband's religious or military career. Enjoyable read!
