Contraportada:

Young, lonely, and insecure, Alice Fletcher is on the verge of emotional collapse when she stumbles into St. Benet's Church to dodge the London drizzle. There, she witnesses a group of gifted healers led by the charismatic Nicholas Darrow. Gaining refuge at last, Alice is drawn -- inexorably, seductively -- into the complex network of relationships at St. Benet's healing center -- as she falls immediately, dangerously, in love with Darrow himself.

Yet Darrow and his cutting-edge clergy are not all what they seem. And while Nicholas's dazzling powers now threaten to ruin all he attempts to save -- including his own disturbed marriage -- Alice's devotion to him deepens. Then a devastating tragedy transports her to the shocking center of truth. Yet fueled by her love for Nicholas and a boldly emerging intuition, she will hold together the lives spinning wildly out of control -- as she herself is transformed forever.

Reseña del editor:

At St. Benet's-by-the-Wall, a small church in the City of London, Nicholas Darrow heads a ministry of healing. He is a clergyman in his mid-40s, blessed -- and cursed -- with both true healing powers and a deeply mysterious allure. After a tempestuous youth and a rocky entry into the priesthood, he has settled into an outwardly satisfying routine: weekdays at the church, weekends at home in the country with his wife and two young sons. But he is haunted by a profound and dangerous weakness: at times of greatest stress, he falls into the habits of a 'wonder worker, ' believing his powers to be God-like rather than God-given. And recent events at St. Benet's -- a 'demonic brew' of obsession, deception and desire -- are beginning to push him in that direction. The arrival at the Rectory of a new live-in cook -- a gentle, shy, emotionally needy woman in her early 30s -- seems to precipitate a severe spin out of control at St. Benet's. But the 'arrogance, obstinacy and . . . glamorous detachment' that have begun to rule Nicholas now put him at the center of the downward spiral. His powers suddenly dazzling and infinitely dangerous, he must undertake an arduous struggle to regain emotional and psychic equilibrium or risk ruining, in the most insidious ways, every life he attempts to heal.
