The Rector’s Wife (Black Swan, 1999)

When her husband fails to win promotion in the church, Anna Bouverle, a vicar’s wife of 20 years, turns her back on her spouse’s isolated bitterness and takes a job in the local supermarket, bringing Anna anew lease on life and a string of admirers. The Rector’s Wife was written by English author Joanna Trollope whose novels often center on the domestic nuances and dilemmas of life in present-day England.
