Married for twenty 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 Florida, Dean becomes best friends with Augusta Holderfield, a woman whose good looks and extravagant habits immediately entrance her.
As their friendship evolves, Augusta challenges Dean to break free from her traditional role as the preacher's wife. The constrictions of this world bring Dean to a crossroads when tragedy shatters her life and she learns the truth of Augusta's past.
The Sunday Wife is Cassandra King's captivating debut novel about one woman's journey towards independence and the life-changing friendship that guides her there.
