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.

An exposition of a marriage worn threadbare by the grind of daily living and unfulfilled expectation.
