The Rector's Wife Synopsis

Joanna Trollope has the priceless gift of drawing characters so clearly, and cleanly, that within half a dozen pages, you feel you have known them all your life - and The Rector's Wife is no exception. A thought-provoking, emotionally-charged and, at times, wonderfully witty, read bringing to light the trials and tribulations of marriage - and the struggle when it doesn't give you what you need. Perfect for readers of Elizabeth Noble, Erica James and Amanda Prowse. 'Elegantly written' -- The Sunday Times 'Compulsive reading' -- The Times 'Prepare to be wittily and wisely entertained by an exceptional writer' -- Daily Mail 'A wonderful read, just read it and enjoy' -- ***** Reader review 'Just fabulous - what more can I say?' -- ***** Reader review 'A must-read' -- ***** Reader review ************************************************************************************** IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO FIND YOUR OWN WAY For twenty years, Anna Bouverie, as a priest's wife, has served God and the parish in a variety of ways.

She takes a job in the local supermarket where she earns her own money, her sense of self-worth, the shocked disapproval of the parish and the icy fury of her husband. She also attracts the passionate interest of three very different men, each of whom was to play a significant part in the blossoming of her life...
