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!
