Messiahs Don’t Fly Michael Turner wants to be a priest. Whether he achieves this desire depends on how he sorts out his relationships with three key women: Jenny, his GP wife, Nan, the priest who is his mentor, and Alison, the troubled ordinand who threatens to destroy them all. David St John Thomas Fiction award winner, 2000
An Inspector Falls Six months into her first curacy, Alison Thompson is left to run the parish alone when her vicar becomes ill. As troubles in the church, her marriage, and the school where she is Chair of Governors threaten to overwhelm her, she begins an affair with Iain, a visiting Ofsted Inspector. When her parishioners find out, Alison is faced not only with the consequences of her own fall from grace, but with some devastating truths about the Inspector’s behaviour.
No Perfect Priest Alison Thompson is given another chance after having an affair, by a new bishop who once had an affair himself. Parishioners and colleagues in the churches she’s in charge of disapprove of her as a divorced, women priest, but she copes until the bishop's old flame and her ex-lover both reappear. When scandal threatens, the bishop issues an ultimatum. As Alison faces agonising decisions about her future, her friend Michael takes a hand. And what follows will have far-reaching consequences not only for Alison, her friends and parishioners, but most dramatically, for the bishop himself.
Anne Borrowdale’s vivid, witty, award-winning novels combine great story-telling with a perceptive and thought-provoking take on church life.
