Married for twenty years to the Reverand Benjamin Lynch, a handsome, ambitious minister of a prestigious Methodist church, Dean Lynch has never quite adjusted her termperament to the demands of the role of a "Sunday Wife." When her husband is assigned to a larger church, Dean becomes fast friends with Augusta Holderfield, a woman with a secret past whose good looks and extravagant habits immediately entrance Dean, much to Ben's disgust.
As their relationship evolves, Dean begins to break free from the traditional role as the preacher's wife, shocking some of the members of the congreation. Just as Dean is questioning everything she has always valued, a tragedy occurs, providing the catalyst for change in ways she never could have imagined, and providing a climactic conclusion that resonates with emotional power.
Filled with unforgettable characters, The Sunday Wife is a captivating novel about one woman's journey towards independence, and the life-changing friendship that guides her there."

I could NOT put this book down! Absolutely LOVED IT!

This book touched my heart; the author very poignantly told the tales of a southern gal's trials and triumphs, what married to a Methodist minister meant and entailed in a small southern town, what living in that small town meant with all the gossips and tongue wagglers; it's a story of friendship and love, romance and resolve, heartbreak and hope. It's a story that I will think about often in the days to come, as I wonder about Dean's choices, were they wrong, if she had done things differently, would the outcome be the same? A book full of complex emotions; an excellent story.
