In a shock move for the Church of England, a female Archbishop of Canterbury is appointed. What happens when the stained glass ceiling is shattered?
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?
Michele Guinness is a well-known speaker and the bestselling author of The Guinness Spirit, Is God Good for Women?, Autumn Leave and, most recently, Archbishop. She worked for many years as a broadcast journalist, then in PR for the NHS, eventually heading up NHS communications for Cumbria and Lancashire. She is now retired with two children and three grandchildren, and divides her time between Kent and France with her husband, Canon Peter Guinness.
