Recommended to CLM by: SLM
Read in January, 1992

Such a bizarre and improbable plot (although I think someone told me it is based on a real incident), not to mention totally unlikeable characters, but I was hooked anyway. In this series about the Church of England, Howatch flirts with the occult as she has her clergymen characters (and the women who tempt them!) try to deal with their stresses through non traditional religious means.

What an interesting departure from the two books I had read many years ago, Penmarric and Cashelmara, both outstanding in a very different way. Howatch cannot write a book that isn't compelling.
