A beautifully conceived story of Sir Thomas More - scholar, Chancellor of England, man of integrity - who was snatched from the peaceful life of his family home in Chelsea, to die on the scaffold as the price of his opposition to the wild desires of his King.
Even before I developed my obsession with Tudor England, I had a keen interest in Sir Thomas More. Hes always been a historical figure that stood out to me someone that dared to openly defy King Henry VIII, fully knowing the consequences of doing so? Thats an admirable and curious man in my book. So when I realized that Plaidy, one of my favorite historical authors, wrote a book focusing on Mores life, I had to read it.
