Reviews

"Greeley's attention to historical detail and her astute characterization as she adeptly uncovers nuances of character in both Charlotte and her husband . . . feel fresh while also ringing true to [Jane] Austen's writing. . . Fans of other Austen spinoffs . . . will devour this thoughtful, moving, readable debut."--Booklist
"The Clergyman's Wife is a compelling, beautifully rendered view into the soul of Pride and Prejudice's Charlotte Collins, and into the bittersweet realities of the life of compromise she chose when she married for security rather than love. Molly Greeley manages to tell Charlotte's story in a refreshingly contemporary style while at the same time keeping the reader's feet firmly planted in a time gone by."--Shannon Winslow, author of The Darcys of Pemberley

“Greeley debuts with a delightful yet poignant historical inspired by Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice, from the pragmatic point of view of Charlotte Collins, a friend of Elizabeth Bennet's who married one of Elizabeth's cast-off suitorsWith tight prose and expert characterization, Greeley easily draws readers into the world she's created while largely staying true to Pride and Prejudice's original plot. Ideal for fans of Austen's work, Greeley's strong debut also stands on its own."--Publishers Weekly
"The Clergyman's Wife is a poignant, pensive, and brilliant exploration of women's lot in early nineteenth-century England and how one woman rose to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear."--Laurel Ann Nattress, editor of s>Jane Austen Made Me Do It
"There's a hint of DH Lawrence in this nuanced, cleverly-plotted Pride and Prejudice spin-off. Greeley builds Charlotte's world artfully...You needn't be an Austen fan to relish Greeley's spirited first novel."--BBC
