While I Was Gone

18th July 2006

While I Was Gone (Oprah\'s Book Club)Although it had a slow start and a slow end, overall this book was very entertaining. Jo Becker is a minister’s wife with an interesting past. When she happens upon a former roommate, her past comes back with a vengeance. As Jo tries to deal with the long-ago unsolved murder of a close friend, she inadvertently solves the mystery.

The one strange thing about this book that didn’t ring true was Jo as a minister’s wife. Jo is very obviously not a believer, yet this doesn’t seem to be an issue for her husband, her marriage or the church. I had a very hard time reconciling this with what I know about pastor’s wives. For some, this might not be a big flaw in the book, but it was very distracting for me.
