Diane Moody follows up her popular "Confessions of a Prayer Slacker" (Journey Press) with her first Novel, "The Runaway Pastor's Wife". Released February 9th on Kindle with the paperback coming March 1st.
One reviewer states:
Diane Moody brings us a story of love, despair, and hope.
The runaway wife - many of us have idealized such a thought; but for Annie, it was a matter of life and death. If she remained in the church fishbowl, she would surely shrivel up and die - whether it be spiritually or emotionally. The words, "Come with Me to a quiet place and rest", draw in Annie but she never expected so much drama in her search for peace, as her past meets up with the present in a remote hideaway.
"The Runaway Pastor's Wife" is not another chick-lit book; it is captivating and intriguing. The book's format allows the reader to get to know the characters, but does not prepare the reader for the unexpected plot twists. Once you pickup this book, block out the world because you won't want to put it down.
What could possibly drive a pastorís 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 couldnít 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 pastorís wife, Annieís 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.
