Description
The time is 1940. Jonathan Darrow is an Anglican priest when he receives a shattering vision and knows he must leave the monastery that has been his home for seventeen years. As he plunges into the temptations of the real world, a crisis sends him into the labyrinth of his past to pluck out the buried truth beneath the deceptions he has been living through. Praise for Glamorous Powers “Fascinating . . . convincing . . . believable.” — Newsday “Mesmerizing . . . holds the reader riveted.” — The Washington Post “Intriguing and wholly involving . . . Darrow is a willful, proud, manipulative man, struggling to subdue his tempestuous character. . . . The resulting crisis—in which Darrow finally faces the necessary process of uncovering deeply buried pain—underlines Ms. Howatch's concern with the continual play of light and dark in the human spirit.” — The New York Times Book Review “Gripping . . . You'll be quite transported. You'll also discover one of the most original novelists writing today.” — Cosmopolitan “Howatch is skillful at plot development and deftly handles [her] subject. . . . Her grasp of psychic experiences and the inner struggle between the urge to do spiritual good and the temptation to exert control make for an engrossing read.” — New York Daily News “Wise, witty . . . Holds the reader spellbound.” — Publishers Weekly
