Thoroughly Entertaining

I really enjoyed this book, far more than I thought I would. It is very predictable in places, and it took some time to get used to the writing style, but overall it was a good listen. The Bishop's Wife of the title is the main narrator and she tells us about life in her small Mormon community. A woman is missing, the Bishop's Wife is grieving from a lost child and throws herself into helping the child of the missing woman. I felt I learnt a lot about the Church and it only occasionally came across as preachy. Told in the first person, there is a lot of internal reflection, so the writer describes an event and this is followed by the Bishop's Wife thinking and reflecting on what that means, what she should do and what she thinks happened. This style was irritating at times, but it did allow her character to be well defined. Overall recommended easy listen.

Good read

This was a thought provoking work -well written and beautifully narrated. I found Kirsten quite soothing to listen to. Great.
