"Fascinating...convincing...believable."

NEWSDAY

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.

Review:

"The 'glamorous powers' are the psychic powers of Ho watch's fictional narrator, Jonathan Darrow, an Anglican monk who leaves his monastery in 1940 after 17 years of spiritual withdrawal and discipline to face the temptations of the secular world. In this second volume of her projected trilogy about the Anglican Church in the 20th century, Howatch derives much of her inspiration from a deep reading of William Inge's works on Christian mysticism, but it is her varied cast of vividly drawn characters that will earn this book a large popular audience. Like her previous 12 novels, Glamorous Powers is a good read." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
