What’s it like when the man you married is already married
to God? asks Pastors’ Wives, an often surprising yet always
emotionally true first novel set in a world most of us know
only from the outside.
Lisa Takeuchi Cullen’s debut novel Pastors’ Wives follows
three women whose lives converge and intertwine at a
Southern evangelical megachurch. Ruthie follows her Wall
Street husband from New York to Magnolia, a fictional suburb
of Atlanta, when he hears a calling to serve at a megachurch
called Greenleaf. Reeling from the death of her mother,
Ruthie suffers a crisis of faith—in God, in her marriage,
and in herself. Candace is Greenleaf’s “First Lady,” a force
of nature who’ll stop at nothing to protect her church and
her superstar husband. Ginger, married to Candace’s son,
struggles to play dutiful wife and mother while burying her
calamitous past. All their roads collide in one chaotic
event that exposes their true selves. Inspired by Cullen’s
reporting as a staff writer for Time magazine, Pastors’
Wives is a dramatic portrayal of the private lives of
pastors’ wives, caught between the demands of faith,
marriage, duty, and love.
