Introducing Michelle Guinness’ fiction debut – ‘Archbishop’ – a tale of political intrigue, psychological mind games, and a thrilling glimpse into the underbelly of the Church of England.
It’s 2019 and the Archbishop is found dead in a hotel room… and what follows could either revolutionise the Church of England or bring it crashing down. Vicky Burham-Woods is announced to become the first ever female Archbishop of Canterbury. As she steps into this prestigious role her social conscience is challenged in almost every circumstance while she holds the responsibility of navigating the Christian community through unimaginable prejudice and an ever-changing society.
Will the Church of England be crippled by politically motivated lawsuits? Can she achieve her ambitious goals and stay faithful to her Anglican heritage? Will she survive in the minefield of the public eye?
This clever book, often more a novalised autobiography of the fictional Archbishop than a novel, is an intense thriller that will keep you enthralled till the very last page.
