    What goes on behind the closed doors of the priest's office? The Celibate Priest and His Secretary by author John E. Maybury is a captivating story about a priest who struggles with his celibacy. Father John McCauley is hired just out of seminary in the small town of Melville. There he hires a young local woman, Maria, as his bookkeeper and secretary. After watching him ply his trade for a time, her heart longs to be more than co-workers. She dedicates herself to their work, uninterested in any would-be suitors outside of the parish. Soon McCauley is promoted to shepherd in a new town and Maria follows. In the new surroundings, the two grow lonely and begin to depend on each other for emotional interaction, breeding feelings of guilt. When a new hire stirs desires in him that are unfulfilled, McCauley rethinks his stance on celibacy and the priesthood. Combining elements of drama, suspense and humor, this book is an emotional rollercoaster you won't want to miss.
