It is strange that the book only concentrates on his period in England (as the title warns us), when the writer acknowledges the fact at least twice in the book that most of the letters during his stay in England had been lost to history. It may have been more interesting if they had written of his entire love. The last chapter states he had lived 39 years after 1559---weren't any of his achievements in those years noteworthy?
So little has been written about him... ( )
