The Benefits of Passion [9781910674000]

(1 review) Write a Review

Annie Brown, wrestling with doubts about her faith and a biological clock the size of Big Ben, escapes the stifling kindness of her fellow ordinands and the stifled yelps of her sexuality by writing a raunchy novel. Yet Annie can no more control her characters than she could a congregation. Outrageous Isabella and butter-wouldn't-melt Barney hurtle unbidden into difficult situations that lead Annie inexorably back to her own repressed upbringing and present predicament. Some of their liberation rubs off on her too, and when she meets brusque outsider Will, Annie plunges into passion as uninhibitedly as Isabella. But Annie's vocation, like her libido, won't lie down, and she despairs of finding a happy ending to either of her stories ...

    Annie Brown has doubts about her suitability to be a parish priest, so is writing a raunchy noel to distract her. Absolutely fascinating.
