Publisher's Summary

What could possibly drive a pastor's wife to run away from home?
After years of frustration from life in a church fishbowl, Annie McGregor walks away from it all and boards a plane for Colorado. She has no way of knowing her college sweetheart is headed to the same cabin in the Rockies, terrified and gravely wounded. Their unexpected reunion couldn't have come at a worse time. Or could it?
Bewildered that God would allow Michael Dean to walk back into her life, Annie pleads with Him to keep her heart true to her husband and her family. God answers her prayer, but in a way she would never expect.
Written by a former pastor's wife, Annie's story provides a rare look inside the family life of those in the ministry, particularly the unique pressures on those who marry men of God.

Poorly narrated and poorly edited

I was disappointed in the quality of the narration of this book. The voices were just weird, and the narration included a lot of pauses where it didn't make sense to have a pause. Also there was one place where there was clearly an editing mishap, when the narrator said, "Let's go back to..."

The story itself was somewhat contrived. I wanted to see a little more growth in the characters. I hated seeing them always at each other's throats. Not everyone deals with anger and frustration the same way and it would have been nice to see a little more variability in the characters. Also There were some loose ends that were just left hanging.

On a positive note, Annie's frustration and loneliness was well portrayed and seemed appropriate for her character.

If you decide to read this book, i highly recommend skipping the audio. You will probably like it much better that way.

Good

This was the first one of this authors books that I have read. It was good with a lot of unexpected twists and turns. There were some places where I felt it was l little bit too dramatic. However, I liked the story and enjoyed listening to it.
