Married for 20 years to the Reverend Benjamin Lynch, a handsome, ambitious minister of the prestigious Methodist church, 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 with a secret past whose good looks and extravagant habits immediately entrance Dean, much to Ben's disgust.

Augusta encourages Dean to perform publicly on her treasured dulcimer, a passion that Ben has always smirked at; and pushes her to break out of the confining strictures that Ben has laid down over the years. As their relationship evolves, Dean begins to break free from her traditional role as the preacher's wife, shocking some of the more staid members of the congregation. 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.

    " I read this quite a long time ago (audio book actually) and enjoyed it. That's about what I can remember, other than the dulcimer and a few themes of a woman coming into her own, leaving her husband, etc. I do think I should give another of C. Kings audio books a try again since I liked it. It's out of my typical genre but I'm glad I read it. May have even been 4 stars but not sure. Ah if only my memory was better! "

    " Not my usual choice, but this book suprised me. I enjoyed seeing the main character grow a backbone, and cheered for her right to the end of the book. "

    " She was stuck in a marriage where her spouse wanted things and did not seem to care what she wanted. He did not think anyone would like her dulcimer music but found that a lot of people did. Through the death of her best friend, she discovered love and knew she did not have that with her husband. "

    " There should be 1/2 stars! I LOVED this book! I really wasn't sure what to expect with it, but the writing style was excellent, the characters were for the most part very real, and the story went places I didn't expect. I was deeply involved and moved by this one, and it is a reflective piece of fiction that is very much appealing. "
