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.

    " This book had a number of problems. The editing was terrible: typos, contradictions, wrong words used. Very bizarre!!! The plot was an odd mixture -- seemed like the author wrote two different stories then tried to mash them together: one about a burnt out pastor's wife, the other about a retired baseball player who has serious father-in-law problems. And how about that act of God that just happened to fix all the problems of the baseball player? And the pastor's wife immediately turns to the ball player, and says, basically, "well that problem is solved for you!"? Two people, possibly 4, just died, and that is her response? And how about the adopted son... pretty convenient how that all plays out. The whole thing was almost laughable. "

    " Though there are a few parts of this book that seem a bit corny at first, the way the author weaves the story together keeps you reading. In the end, I enjoyed it very much and was quite surprised. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 1/17/2014

    " Oh my! This ebook was so hard to put down. At first I wasn't sure where the author was going with the story line when she kept going back and forth from different people that I thought had nothing to do with one another. Not too far into the book I was hooked though. About the time you thought you knew what was going on the plot changed. Yes, the plot. There as definately a 'who done it' mystery. I loved the way the author showed the humaness of all her characters and the faith and dedication many had to God. THe ending was definaeley a surprise to me but then again it showed how God was and is in control even through the rough times in our lifes. He has the way of putting people right where they need to be to make all things turn out better then we can imagine. A must read and a must read again book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dorothy Via | 1/16/2014

    " This book was ok. It's hard to find realistic Christian fiction, that isn't sappy. The story took a plunge near the end with things coming together too quickly. Left too many issues unresolved. Too many stereotypes with the "bad" characters just too over the top. Many situations were unbelievable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy Poyner | 1/15/2014

    " It was fast-paced. The ending had too many coincidences. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angel | 1/15/2014

    " This book is a good read. I just wish it would have ended a little different, it seemed a bit rushed. I would have liked to see Micheal reconnect with his wife. Other than that this is a good read and I would recommend it to a friend. Good clean fiction! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 1/11/2014

    " I really was surprised that I liked this book so much, since many reviews were on the low side. I was expecting it to be droll, and even though some may think some of the story was silly, I just appreciated how clean , decent and with a Christian message this was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dianne | 12/29/2013

    " This was a good book, although had some directions that seemed too unbelievable. Not that fiction should be totally believable but with a story like this that is based on what could be any pastor's wife's life, I prefer more realistic story lines. That being said, it was good and kept my interest for the most part. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lydia Nkutha | 12/28/2013

    " This was an eye opener in terms of how we as a church take up so much of the pastor's time that he ends up neglecting his family. Now I understand why my previous pastor's children resent the church so much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margo | 12/19/2013

    " A decent read and a pretty good plot, with some unexpected twists and turns. The "bad" guys were bad, but I appreciated that the protagonist and the "good" guys weren't just one-dimensional. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca May | 12/15/2013

    " somewhat close to home =\ "

    " I loved the story, had some mystery, showed that no problem is to big for God. Thid writer is one of my favorites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Georgia | 11/29/2013

    " the book kept my interest and certainly made me think about some of the issues facing pastoral families. "

    " This was a a great blend of mystery and love story "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chelle Protzman | 11/27/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book throughout but the ending was a tad on the cheesy side. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mandy Hannah | 11/27/2013

    " Great Book!! Slow at first but def a page turner!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 10/17/2013

    " Maybe I was reading this one at just the right time in my life. It sent me many messages and made me consider some things in my life. The ending was a little corny, but most of it was a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Val Hanson | 9/11/2013

    " I have to say that I enjoyed reading this book. I can imagine how difficult it must be for a Pastor and his Wife to shepherd a congregation. I thought the ending was good although a bit unbelievable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renee | 6/4/2013

    " Really loved this book. I recommend it highly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 5/28/2013

    " Nice, clean story which I like. I kept getting annoyed by the fact that they had no caller ID so whenever Anne would call, the family was frustrated by not knowing where she was calling from. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kwhelan | 4/8/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book until the last quarter, and then things sounded a little too contrived and unbelievable. That said, I will look for more from this author as I did enjoy her writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anino | 4/6/2013

    " As a persnickety reader, I am very particular about what I read... I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book & I highly recommend it... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Hanks | 3/10/2013

    " Parts of this book were very exciting. I liked the daring conclusion. I struggled with the idea of a mom up and leaving her kids and going off on her own like this pastor's wife did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 2/21/2013
