I told you I’d be back, so…here I am…
to tell you about a great book I just finished last week that you can win a copy of this month by leaving a comment. The book is The Pastor’s Wife
by Jennifer AlLee, published by Abingdon Press.
As a child, Jennifer AlLee lived above a mortuary and had to be very quiet when services were going on downstairs, which solidified her life-long love of books and writing. Jennifer now resides in the grace-filled city of Las Vegas with her husband and teenage son. And I also happen to know from personal experience that she is a fun person to be around and a great actress!
This is Jen’s second published book, and she did a wonderful job of immediately drawing me into the situation of a wife returning to her pastor husband after a six year separation. I felt empathy for both the pastor and the wife as they struggle to adjust. And the way the reunion came about is a unique idea, but I won’t share too many details so you will want to read this book for yourself.
The wife, Maura, also has to learn to adjust to the members of the congregation where her husband still preaches. And she needs to find a way to share her long-kept secret with her husband.
The husband, Nick, is determined not to make the same mistakes he made before. Is it true that love is more wonderful the second time around? You’ll have to read this book to find out. Leave a comment for my ARC copy which the publisher provided for this drawing. Or, if you can’t wait, you can read the first three chapters of The Pastor’s Wife here: http://issuu.com/abingdonpress/docs/pastors_wife
