The Pastor's Wife by Jennifer AlLee

The Pastor's Wifeby Jennifer AlLee is about Maura and her estranged husband Nick.  Both of them made mistakes in the first few months of their marriage, sending Maura back to California and leaving Nick in Ohio where he was pastoring a church.

Six years later, Maura is called back to Ohio for the reading of a will.  An unusual circumstance has Maura moving back to Ohio, back into the parsonage with Nick, even though their relationship hasn't been restored.

This was a sweet book that told the story of what it took to break a marriage apart and the struggle to restore and even improve upon it.

I like that it considered issues that were specific to a ministry marriage.  Some of the issues Nick and Maura deal with are ones that could come about in almost any marriage, but other issues were specifically because Nick was a pastor.

I really enjoyed the story.  It was realistic, and they tried to rely on God to help them through, although sometimes it took them a while to come around.

The book ended with several thoughtful questions for the reader to answer rather than just putting away the book without taking a few moments to consider its implications.

I read the Kindle version, which had a few formatting issues, but they were minor, and only mildly distracting.

If you're looking for an easy read that makes you feel good at the end, this might be a good choice for you.

  1. Sounds like a good read! Stopping by from "quite the blog's" linkup!!

  2. That's interesting that you like the genre even though you're outside of it, though I guess that's not so unusual. I might read a mystery book even though I don't go sleuthing things out myself. If you get the book, let me know what you think. Thanks for coming by!

  3. How would you compare this to Francine Rivers' take on the subject (if you've read her work)? Though I like much of her historical biblical fiction (filling in the gaps for contextual learning), I've found myself not as drawn to her take on the husband-wife dynamic according to her personal beliefs. The average church-goer doesn't realize all the issues that confront a pastoral family and I've found her take to be lacking in some key relational areas.

  8. Thank you for coming by, Pamela. My husband and I did youth ministry for a couple years before he started graduate school, and while we didn't have much trouble with balance since we did it together, I can easily see how it would become a problem.
