9780006476276: Absolute Truths

In a finale to the series set against the background of the Church of England, Charles Ashworth, Bishop of Starbridge in 1965, complacently proclaims against an immoral society. But then catastrophe tears his life apart and he is confronted with the disorder he had condemned in others.

From the Back Cover:

1968, with the swinging sixties sliding into decadence, finds Nicholas Darrow wrestling with overwhelming personal problems: How can he bring himself to marry his fiancee, Rosalind, when he is unable to avoid promiscuity? How can he become a priest when he finds it so difficult to live as one? And how can he break his dangerous dependence on his father Jon, whose psychic gifts he shares?

It is at this crucial moment in his life that Nick becomes involved in the mystery surrounding his friend, Christian Aysgarth. Gradually, he realises that discovering the truth about this enigmatic and complex man will unlock the answers to his own baffling problems. However, his journey through darkness into the light reverses all the old certainties and, in his experiments with his psychic powers, Nick risks even his own life and sanity.

"She is writing for anyone who can recognise that mysterious gift of the true storyteller."
DAILY TELEGRAPH

"Utterly addictive"
