Whatâ€™s it like when the man you married is already married to God? asks Pastorsâ€™ Wives, an often surprising yet always emotionally true first novel set in a world most of us know only from the outside. Lisa Takeuchi Cullenâ€™s debut novel Pastorsâ€™ 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 faithÂ—in God, in her marriage, and in herself. Candace is Greenleafâ€™s Â“First Lady,â€ť a force of nature whoâ€™ll stop at nothing to protect her church and her superstar husband. Ginger, married to Candaceâ€™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 Cullenâ€™s reporting as a staff writer for Time magazine, Pastorsâ€™ Wives is a dramatic portrayal of the private lives of pastorsâ€™ wives, caught between the demands of faith, marriage, duty, and love.
