9780140258974: The Benefits of Passion

Annie is training to be a priest but as her mind wanders during theological discussions and doubts emerge about her choice of career, she plots and writes a highly sexed novel about ... a novice priest and his flighty girlfriend.

''A delightful novel: funny, life-enhancing and humane ... Above all, she displays a genuine ability to make religion palatable for a secular age. Forget The Rector's Wife [Joanna Trollope's bestselling 1992 novel], this is the real thing.'' --Michael Arditti, Independent

''She has again succeeded in creating a cast of compelling characters (some of whom made their first appearance in Angels and Men), whose fate one becomes anxious to discover.'' --Kate Chisholm, Sunday Telegraph

''Fox ... writes this provocative and witty story as if she were on springs, her exuberant style happily combining comedy with religious argument ... thoroughly enjoyable.'' --Good Housekeeping
