Publisher's Description

The third in Susan Howatch's Church of England novels, Ultimate Prizes begins in 1942 with the world at war, as narrator and archdeacon Nevill Aysgarth finds himself falling into a hopeless obsession over Dido Tallent, beautiful celebrity, and finds himself pursuing her through a swamp of guilt and the destruction of his valued moral compass. . . .

Praise for Ultimate Prizes

"I did not want to put the book down. . . . [Howatch] is a skilled storyteller who makes the reader wonder and care about her people."The Washington Post Book World

"Thoughtful and thought-provoking . . . Almost every newspaper carries an article or two on the scandalous private life of a public figure. . . . Ultimate Prizes offers a look at both the sacred and profane aspects of religious life as it is lived on the front lines—the story just behind the front page."Chicago Tribune

"Howatch writes thrillers of the heart and mind. . . . Everything in a Howatch novel cuts close to the bone and is of vital concern. . . . You’ll want to have tea with this wise, witty woman."—New Woman

"Vibrant . . . The author of Glittering Images and Glamorous Powers scores a hat trick with this third novel in her series set amidst the ’cut-and-thrust battles’ and ’sheer Machiavellian skulduggery’ of the Church of England."Kirkus Reviews
