well written and well researched. the author has some sympathy with the
catholic minority in england, but she points out the many and real enemies that the english monarch had, and their connection with the church. the pope comes in for as much criticism as does the prosecutors of the jesuits.
she seems sometimes to side with the prosecutors in terms of whether anne vaux was as saintly as she seemed. but her research is quite good and persuasive. ( )
