Henry VII once warned his son, the future King of England, not to trust Thomas More; years later that same son made More his confidante and advisor. But the allegiance is dangerously one-sided. A family man, lawyer and writer, More's ambitions are humble, whilst Henry's are endless. As More's career at court rises so too does his religious fervour, much to the concern of his eldest daughter, Margaret More. Meg, as she is fondly called, is torn between her heretic husband and the secrets her father has confided in her, and already fears that one day her father will make the ultimate sacrifice for his faith.
The book is in good plus condition, with clean pages and secure binding. The dustwrapper is rather grubby and has a closed tear to the front panel (3cm down through the "St" of the title) but it has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
