(From the publisher):
This is the 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 King Henry VIII. It is also the story of a family caught up in the intrigues of a lustful king.
Thomas More did not seek fame. His merry household, sanctuary of Holbein and Erasmus, was in startling contrast with the licentious Tudor court. But when fame was thrust upon More, he began the perilous journey which ended on St. Thomas's Eve.
