Publisher's Summary

Charles Ashworth is privileged, pampered, and pleased with himself. But when a catastrophe tears his life apart, his guilt drives him into the immoral and disordered life the Bishop of Starbridge has condemned so violently in others.

What the critics say

"This final novel in a double trilogy about the Church of England in the 1930s and the 1960s is a splendid conclusion to the series...and a powerful combination of psychological insight, theological depth, and storytelling ability." (Library Journal)

Absolute Truths

This is a fantastic book and well read by Stephen Thorne. Listeners should be advised that this book is the last installment of the "Church of England" series by Susan Howatch. One hopes that audible.com will make the entire series of six books available so that listeners will be able to listen to the series in sequence.

A brilliant conclusion to a brilliant series. Make sure you go through the series in order as the characters keep reappearing!
Excellent narration.
