Overview

Married for 20 years to the Reverend Benjamin Lynch, a handsome, ambitious Methodist minister, Dean Lynch has never quite adjusted her temperament to the demands of the role of a Sunday wife. When her husband is assigned to a larger and more demanding community in the Florida panhandle, Dean becomes fast friends with Augusta Holderfield, a woman whose good looks and extravagant habits immediately entrance her. As their friendship evolves, Augusta challenges Dean to break free from her traditional role as the preacher's wife. Just as Dean is questioning everything she has always valued, a tragedy occurs, providing the catalyst for change in ways she never could have imagined.

At first I was frustrated with the lack of self respect the main character exhibited but as the book developed she finds her true self. This is a great book, the more the listened the more I wanted to stay in the car to follow her journey.
