This was written by a minister and I wondered if it wasn't somewhat autobiographical. I did enjoy this book. She has finished her theological training, when her husband suddenly decides that he isn't cut out to be a ministers spouse. So she is trying to find a congregation that she is a fit with and deal with her lonliness. When she finally finds the perfect fit - well- downsizing occurs in all jobs. Now she has to make a decision about leaving a job she loves and people she has grown attached to, or make another change in her life.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0781445531, Paperback)

Recently ordained and more recently divorced, Reverend Esme Browne finds herself at an uncomfortable crossroads when stationed at the Portland Road Chapel. In addition to the seaside town, she also now bears the spiritual responsibility for two country chapels, which, for the efficient, well-versed, forty-something lifelong student should be exciting, invigorating and even hopeful. Esme, however, has forgotten how to pray, and, she fears, how to feel.

A chance encounter with an eccentric pair of country gnostics may change all that, but she’ll have to be willing to juggle the demands of the Church, her parishes and a bevy of well intended but nibby neighbors, before she’ll know for sure.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:15:15 -0400)

Lonely, divorced and newly assigned to a rural parish full of quirky characters, Esme Browne rediscovers the beauty of friendship in a most unlikely place.
