Full Product Description

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.

Archbishop by Michele Guinness was published by Hodder & Stoughton in February 2014 and is our 13869th best seller. The ISBN for Archbishop is 9781444753363.

Five years from now, the Church of England is on its knees. Yet one woman is making a difference, and when she is appointed Archbishop of Canterbury, anything could happen. Vicky Burnham-Woods is a master of diplomacy, and deeply committed to bringing the church back into the heart of community and cultural life - but not everyone wants a woman at the top, and behind the scenes dark forces are moving.

Can the first ever female Archbishop of Canterbury last long enough to achieve her mission?
