A Borrowed Life by Kerry Anne King

 
 


A Borrowed Life is the story of a Pastor's wife who is suddenly widowed at 49 years old.  She (and you) realise that her life was limited and controlled by her husband and the expectations of a close knit congregation.

 

This is honest (unflinching) and also funny.  She has a hook up and finds herself pregnant.  Her adult daughter is horrified.

 

By the end of the book she (and you ) realise that she had given in rather than resisted and in many ways had limited herself.  I have no idea why the book is so titled.

I haven't been able to do the story justice but hope you'll give it a go anyway.
