WHAT IF THE THING YOU ADMIRE MOST ABOUT THE PERSON YOU LOVE BECOMES THE CAUSE OF YOUR DEEPEST DESPAIR?
My Name is Jessie. I married a man named Job.
He was my rock, my safe have, for better of for worse. I did not know what it would mean to fully live that vow, or that I would want him to turn his back on that which he loved above all else. This is my story.
Confessions from a Farmer’s Wifeis a modern parallel of the Job story told from his wife’s point of view–a compelling journey of love, hardship, and restoration.Confessions From a Farmer’s Wife
” Confessions From a Farmer’s Wife, a first novel by Caroline Way, is a remarkable book. This story of a mid-20th century Job vividly explores the age old question of why bad things happen to good people. An important theme, well-developed, but it is the excellence of the writing that truly lifts this book above the crowd. Jessie and Job are living, breathing people about whom we care deeply and through whom we experience life in all its beauty and its sorrow. The book is too honest to offer any easy answers but ultimately it is life-affirming and the reader is left knowing that we may not understand, but life is definitely worth the journey. And God is ultimately in control.” -Donna Fletcher Crow, novelist.
“I’ve read this book three times and love it! I can’t wait for the rest of the world to find out about it. Caroline Way has a style all of her own and a fresh voice. “- Cheryl McKay, screenwriter, novelist.
