In Pride and Prejudice, Charlotte Lucas chooses with her eyes wide open to marry Mr. Collins, the unctuous clergyman who has nothing to recommend him but the ability to provide her with a household of her own.  In The Clergyman's Wife, Molly Greeley pauses to consider the backstory and consequences of this choice.  The is a gentle story, notable for the author's clear, lyrical writing and consideration of the real financial challenges facing women in Jane Austen's day, as well as her empathy for the characters - especially, and perhaps surprisingly, Mr. Collins - without letting them off the hook for their moral choices.  With a light touch, wisdom, and care, Greely explores questions that provide a richer understanding of history and of our own lives.
