The Mirage Beyond by PETER S. F. MYERS
To Richard Burrage, immersed in the everyday affairs of his beloved Cathedral, the offer of a comfortable new living with its many material advantages seemed nothing less than an invitation to forsake his chosen work and betray himself and his deeply held principles. The dilemma was all the more acute since his decision must involve the happiness and welfare of his wife and son.
Place: The Burrages' house in the Cathedral Close of a provincial city. Time : The present.
