The book takes a sometimes uncomfortable look at the reality of living the life of a church wife - the expectations of a needy and judgemental parish, the frustration of putting your own needs and ambitions aside to make way for your husband's and what happens when you suddenly realise you've made a terrible mistake and you want your life back.
A really thoughtfully written book which I couldn't put down.
My one concern is that it's all frightfully upper middle class; people "lower in the social scale" appear in this book only as shallow caricatures of "ordinary folk".
That said, I will certainly read more of Joanna Trollope.
