Susan Howatch has written a series of six novels about the dynamics of sin and grace in the lives of clergy and lay members of the Church of England. They are Glittering Images, Glamorous Powers, Ultimate Prizes, Scandalous Risks, Mystical Paths, and Absolute Truths.

In the last one, the year is 1965 and Charles Ashworth is Bishop of Starbridge. His establishment faith and his prophetic sense of ministry are shattered by the death of his wife. Suddenly, he is forced to square off with hatreds, passions, and ghosts that had been kept under cover for years. This novel reveals how God's grace can work wonders when our lives are shaken at the roots.
