Sacrosanct by Hannah Foulger

Robin, has her perfectly okay life in cancer remission interrupted when a nun representing the congregation for the causes of saints arrives on her doorstep, asking questions about Peter Marian, a martyred priest who served as a chaplain where Robin was treated for her brain cancer. While not being completely honest with the nun, Robin remembers her instant spark with the young priest. As their relationship developed, her cancer got worse and she developed two major brain tumours. Peter prays for her shortly before surgery and when the surgeons open her up, they discover both the tumours have disappeared. Robin and Peter plan to run away together, but Peter never shows up.

Years later, after the nun leaves, Peter finally shows up, but it’s unclear if he’s a ghost, a saint or a hallucination. Whatever he is, Robin is finally able to say everything she’s wanted to for the past five years, which should make her feel better, until it doesn’t, because it turns out he’s not a ghost, saint or a hallucination. He’s really him, alive, and has to actually face Robin’s confrontation, and then, with her help, he might be able to come back to life, but a different one than he had before.
