    MY REVIEW Okay Ladies, here s the deal about this bookIt is a fun, witty, and charming story of forgiveness and reconciliation between a Pastor and his wife And it has one wonderfully appealing cover, too I enjoyed the simple story line and the unexpected twist it took The characters were likable and the story brought to life the real challenges of a ministry couple It was a fun and touching read that I enjoyed especially since I am a Pastor s wife.However, while I liked the overall book, MY REVIEW Okay Ladies, here s the deal about this bookIt is a fun, witty, and charming story of forgiveness and reconciliation between a Pastor and his wife And it has one wonderfully appealing cover, too I enjoyed the simple story line and the unexpected twist it took The characters were likable and the story brought to life the real challenges of a ministry couple It was a fun and touching read that I enjoyed especially since I am a Pastor s wife.However, while I liked the overall book, there were some details that I didn t appreciate as much I hold to some differing theological beliefs than what where conveyed in this story and I thought that there were some points that could have been stronger Also, I recognize that this book is intended for adult woman, but I know that many teens read adult fiction and so on that note I would caution teen girls not to read this book due to one conversation that takes place It s not that the conversation was wrong, but simply not appropriate for teens.The authors writing is enjoyable and is an entertaining read, but this book may not be for everyone or may be one that you just borrow This review copy was provided courtesy of Abingdon Press, but the opinions expressed our strictly my own

    I found this book interesting but trite.The writing was a little thin and also a little too sweet for me toward the end.I could understand and respect Maura s isssues during the marriage I can also understand how a young person could behave in the rash way that she did I just am not a big fan of novels where people allow a tremendous amount of time to pass before they attempt to bring relationships to some type of resolution Even if that resolution is a dissolution of the relationship.I dont I found this book interesting but trite.The writing was a little thin and also a little too sweet for me toward the end.I could understand and respect Maura s isssues during the marriage I can also understand how a young person could behave in the rash way that she did I just am not a big fan of novels where people allow a tremendous amount of time to pass before they attempt to bring relationships to some type of resolution Even if that resolution is a dissolution of the relationship.I dont feel that I ever really understood Nick as a person in the novel, he seemed just to be there to reflect Maura s feelings and frustrations.I was so excited by the premise of this novel but I have to say, I was a little disappointed and I don t feel that it lived up to it s promise

    A good clean romance reminding us it s important to forgive Christian Fiction at its best This was a great change from my usual genre of murder and mayhem Also needed something light to read to keep my mind occupied during these trying times.

    The book The Pastor s Wife was a simple romantic read The premise of the story is a preacher and his wife who are estranged and have been separated for 6 years, living apart Circumstances bring then back together and into closer contact with each other This was a romance, thus the ending was expected and not at all shocking I probably read this book with a bitof a critical eye than I have read other romance stories Why I am a preachers daughter I know what the inside looks like I t The book The Pastor s Wife was a simple romantic read The premise of the story is a preacher and his wife who are estranged and have been separated for 6 years, living apart Circumstances bring then back together and into closer contact with each other This was a romance, thus the ending was expected and not at all shocking I probably read this book with a bitof a critical eye than I have read other romance stories Why I am a preachers daughter I know what the inside looks like I think that the author did a great job with depicting the life of a preacher, the calls that come at any time of the day, the unending demand for the preachers attention, the fear that you will offend the parishoners She did a fabulous job, weaving these demands into the story as the estranged wife chafed under the restrictions placed upon her She did a great job with showing that being yourself is how you fit in The problem that I have with the book, in my experience, I m not sure that any church would be just peachy ok with having a preacher who s wife up and left him The reprocussions would have been much greater in my humble opinon

    This was a free read and I probably wouldn t have picked it up otherwise I am glad I did though While a Christian romance, the religious references are light and not overpowering There is a lot there that I think any wife of a clergy member or child of someone in a prominent place in the community can relate to People in those positions have a lot of unfair projections based on them The plot is a bit odd but the character development is decent Nothing sexier than a kiss and not a super lig This was a free read and I probably wouldn t have picked it up otherwise I am glad I did though While a Christian romance, the religious references are light and not overpowering There is a lot there that I think any wife of a clergy member or child of someone in a prominent place in the community can relate to People in those positions have a lot of unfair projections based on them The plot is a bit odd but the character development is decent Nothing sexier than a kiss and not a super light read for a variety of reasons
