Saint John Fisher|
by Michael Davies
Neumann Press, 1999
"This life of Fisher portrays in a vivid manner those most
closely involved in his life and martyrdom-King Henry VIII;
Lady Margaret Beaufort, Fisher’s patron; the scheming Anne
Boleyn; the saintly Queen Catherine; the cowardly Cardinal
Wolsey; the uncompromising saint Thomas More; etc. After
you have enjoyed and read this book the first time, you will
enjoy reading it again and again, and also use it as a great
reference resource." Amazon.com
