This novel is the second of the Starbridge novels (there's six in total, see below) set in an ecclesiastical town based largely on Salisbury. The novels are based around clergy and the church of england, spirituality & christianity, but don't let that put you's a fanastic read.

From the back cover
Jon Darrow, a man with psychic powers, is a man who has played many parts: a shady faith-heler, a naval chaplain, a passionate husband, an awkward father, an Anglo-Catholic monk.

In 1940 Darrow returns to the world he once renounced, but faced with many unforeseen temptations he fails to control his psychic, most glamorous powers. Corruption lies in wait for him, and threatens not only his future as a priest but his happiness with Anne, the young woman he has come to love.
