This is the most inspirational book I've read thus far! This is not only a book for other pastors' wives, it is a book for any and everyone that attends a church that has a first lady. It gives the congregation a better perspective of the struggles pastors and their wives have to endure. This is definitely a good read and is a tear jerker! I encourage every one to check it out!
