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!
Ann is the Rector's wife. She scrimps to get by on the pittance the Church pays while keeping up appearances for the gossipy villagers. She rarely complains and rarely rebels. But now--as she watches her children suffer for lack of funds, as her husband turns cold and withdraws further into his work, her frustration mounts into fury and she comes to realize she's willing to do whatever it tkes to save herself.
