Book Description

30 Jun 2011
After fifteen years, Eva Randall-Collier must end her marriage to her abusive minister husband. But, as a graduate student in New York City, her resources are limited and housing is at a premium. Her situation is further complicated when at a faculty mixer, she meets Daniel Etheridge-Porter, a handsome British journalist and writing instructor, with whom she forges a friendship and eventually falls in love. When her husband's abuse escalates into physical violence, Eva flees her home, and, with Dan's help, takes refuge in a quiet Long Island suburb. Incensed by her desertion and a confrontation with Dan, Eva's husband begins maligning her in their close-knit church community, all in an effort to cover the abuse while furthering his own ambitions. Ironically, she becomes the hapless "wayward wife," not unlike the biblical Sotah who is the topic of her dissertation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shining a light into dark places 24 Feb 2013
By Tangle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This story is an exploration of one woman's journey to healing as she struggles to escape an abusive marriage. The story faces the tragedy of domestic abuse head-on, while remaining firmly grounded in hope, faith, and the joy of new beginnings. I enjoyed the cast of many unique and interesting characters, especially the group that coalesces to provide support and encouragement to Eva as she grows through this difficult time in her life. But the most interesting part of the story, for me, was the exploration of the varying reactions on the part of both clergy and lay people within the church, as they face the allegations of domestic abuse made against one of their leaders. Ms. Dunlop's writing style is entertaining, flowing easily, and she writes about human nature and personal relationships, about the church and the community, in a penetrating and insightful way. Once I had read about half-way through, I could not put the book down until I had finished. I look forward to reading more from the pen of Ms. Dunlop!

This is a excellent book. It's original and creative. It makes you take a moment and pause. The characters have their own voices and it moves at a nice past that keeps you wanting more. Need something spiritual to read here it is. Read it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for People in or Preparing for Ministry 6 Oct 2011
By JMR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Law of Jealousy is an important book in a number of ways. The author does a wonderful job of presenting some of the real life challenges of ministry, marriage, adultery, abuse, sin, forgiveness and so much more. In reading this book I am reminded of the challenges of balancing ministry and family and the importance of spousal equality as a couple encourages one another and partners together in ministry and in the home life. At times we are all faced with the realities of our own egos and although we cringe at the way that Peter treats Eva there are time that will become more like Peter than we care to admit, concerned only for the self and not for the other. It serves as both a reality check and as opportunity to celebrate a redeemed life. The Law of Jealousy is an excellent book and should be a required reading in classes for students preparing for ministry.
