The Clergyman's Wife

The Clergyman's Wife: A Pride and Prejudice NovelThe Clergyman's Wife: A Pride and Prejudice Novel by Molly Greeley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Head over to Austenprose for my review of Molly Greeley's debut novel, The Clergyman's Wife. The novel takes readers for a visit with Charlotte Collins, nee Lucas, and her highly eligible spouse.

“Behind me on my writing desk, a fresh piece of paper sits ready. The salutation at the top—Dear Elizabeth—has been dry for some time. I never feel the quiet uniformity of my life as fully as when I am trying to compose a letter to my friend…There is always the menu to plan, the accounts to balance, the kitchen garden to tend. I embroider a great deal more than I used to, and my designs have improved, I think. But descriptions of embroidery do not an amusing letter make.” (8)
