About Pastors' Wives:

What's it like when the man you married is already married to God? asks Pastors' Wives, an often surprising yet always emotionally true first novel set in a world most of us know only from the outside.
Lisa Takeuchi Cullen's debut novel Pastors' Wives follows three women whose lives converge and intertwine at a Southern evangelical megachurch. Ruthie follows her Wall Street husband from New York to Magnolia, a fictional suburb of Atlanta, when he hears a calling to serve at a megachurch called Greenleaf. Reeling from the death of her mother, Ruthie suffers a crisis of faith---in God, in her marriage, and in herself. Candace is Greenleaf's "First Lady," a force of nature who'll stop at nothing to protect her church and her superstar husband. Ginger, married to Candace's son, struggles to play dutiful wife and mother while burying her calamitous past. All their roads collide in one chaotic event that exposes their true selves. Inspired by Cullen's reporting as a staff writer for Time magazine, Pastors' Wives is a dramatic portrayal of the private lives of pastors' wives, caught between the demands of faith, marriage, duty, and love.

My Review:
This book weaves together three womens' lives around a church.  They each tell a different story.  They each have differences in their marriages, with children, in their personalities and in their walks with God.  We can each relate to one of them or some parts of each of them.  That makes this story so relatable.  There is drama, love, romance, Christianity and life in general.  The way we perceive women to be-having it all together, living the perfect life, etc. is not always or even usually how it is.  This book shows the other sides... the real sides to the story and examples of women who surround us.  This book would make a great "beach read" and is easily put down and picked right back up. 
I recommend this book to any women who enjoy easy reads about the ups and downs of life and the struggles we all face as women in today's world. 
 
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
