The Pastor's Wife

Blurb from Goodreads:

Maura Sullivan never intended to set foot in Granger, Ohio, again. But when circumstances force her to return, she must face all the disappointments she tried so hard to leave behind: a husband who ignored her, a congregation she couldn't please, and a God who took away everything she ever loved.Nick Shepherd thought he had put the past behind him, until the day his estranged wife walked back into town. Intending only to help Maura through her crisis of faith, Nick finds his feelings for her never died. Now, he must admit the mistakes he made, how he hurt his wife, and find a way to give and receive forgiveness.As God works in both of their lives, Nick and Maura start to believe they can repair their broken relationship and reunite as man and wife. But Maura has one more secret to tell Nick before they can move forward. It's what ultimately drove her to leave him three years earlier, and the one thing that can destroy the fragile trust they've built.

My Thoughts:

Maura Sullivan is forced to go back to Granger, Ohio, a place she never wanted to see again. She was left beneficiary of an old theater, but in order to gain the deed she must live with her estranged husband for six months.

Pastor Nick Shephard had come to terms that his wife had left him years earlier but then the unthinkable happened. In order for Maura to receive her inheritance she must live with him for six months.

Maura hated the idea of living with her husband, she had left all those years ago because she had felt abandoned by the man she loved. She felt that his church and congregation came first.

Seeing that his wife had lost all faith, he agreed to the living arrangement to help guide her back to the Lord. Along the way he began to fall in love all over again.

This was one book that I couldn't put down. I have a workaholic for a husband and could relate to Maura very well.
