"It is the story of Hilary Laurens, grandson of a Bishop, and a clergyman himself. Hilary, it seems, had everything which makes not only for worldly success, but for success in his calling : he was young, he was clever, he was honest and desperately sincere, he was courageous and he was good-looking : he married a beautiful and wealthy wife, and, as though to crown all, he was appointed to the living of St. Mathews, a big prosperous church with a fine tradition, generously supported by the social elite of the town."
