Format: Hardcover
I just read this on my new Kindle 3 (which I enjoy so much)
This is written by a pastors wife. She was an Episcopalian who married a Methodist circuit rider about 1860-70 and covers his 30 years of ministry. The purpose of the book is to bring honor to her husband and his work. She is in wonder of his personal relationship with God feeling she only went through motions. She learns from him and he from her also. But while doing this, Corra inadvertently sheds light to her faithfulness to her husband.
They end up in very poor areas of the mountains. Her descriptions of people and their lives is brilliant. I'll just say nothing much changes in human nature.
She brings you into their lives including disappointments, victories, etc.
One quote I especially enjoyed was when she mentioned her husband was covetous of only one thing: salvations. I am covetous of his zeal.
Very interesting are her and her husband, Williams, observations on the liberalizing or 'modernizing' of the Methodist church.
I have not read such a well put together biography in a very long time. As a disciple of Christ, I look forward to meeting William and Corra Harris someday.

As a United Methodist minister's wife I found this to be a great read.
Though obviously many things have changed, some things today are just as they were so long ago,

I enjoyed reading about the past and the book was very good as you read about the circuit rider from the perspective of his wife.

I love the book! Corra Harris has an unique writing style. The movie made from the book is a favorite of mine. This is a must read for people who love church history as well as any historical accounts of early American life. Pastor's wives will love it!

What a wonderful surprise. I noticed a sign marking "Farmhill Plantation, the childhood home of...." but was driving too fast to catch the rest. Researched it, discovered Corra Harris, then this free novel, and was treated to one of the most honest and insightful assessments of Christians and Christian ministry I have ever read.

If you are looking for plot or character development then pass. Written like a memoir, this is not technically autobiographical--just read and compare to her real life. However, there is no doubt about it, Corra Harris knows church folk. The mountaintop and valley experiences, the tension between this and the next world, the temptations, doubts, and consequences of subtle shifts in doctrine, church politics...it is all there and masterfully told. Given the 1910 publication date, I am surprised Harris did not get some heat.

Again, not for everyone. Those who want "Christian" lit that is whitewashed and sterile or prefer an altar call disguised as a story should look elsewhere. But A Circuit Rider's Wife instantly became one of my favorite novels of all time.
