This is one of my favorite Murdoch novels.

Hilary Burde attempts to recover his soul from the misery of his troubled past. Filled with colourful, well-drawn characters, the novel is a complex and thoughtful exploration of the possibility and meaning of redemption, the nature of the human memory, and the possibility of love for the tarnished soul.
