The Clergyman's Wife

by Molly Greeley

Historical Fiction Modern and Contemporary Fiction Relationship Stories

The Clergyman's Wife Synopsis

She married for her future.

But then she fell in love . . .

Escape into the world of Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet one more time with this charming, poignant story for fans of Miss Austen by Gill Hornby and Longbourn by Jo Baker.

Charlotte Collins is the dutiful wife of Hunsford's vicar. Although it may not be perfect, her marriage allows her security, and so she patiently tolerates Mr Collins' awkward lectures and cares for their young daughter.

But there's more to Charlotte than she'd have you think. Fiercely intelligent and pragmatic, Charlotte yearns for something more.

When she meets Mr Travis, a local farmer, Charlotte starts to feel a spark of something she has never felt before.

Could it be desire? Could it even be love? And will she listen to what her head is telling her or should she follow her heart?

'Ideal for fans of Austen's work, Greeley's strong debut also stands on its own' - Publishers Weekly
