Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``This is the third in Howatch's incomparable series about the Church of England in the 20th century; it's a measure of her achievement that, besides telling a fascinating story boldly and well, she illuminates often quite abstruse religious and ecclesiastical questions,'' reported PW. (Sept.)

I wish that her Church of England series had been available when I was younger. I have learned so much reading this series. Young people would benefit so much from this series. I really love this author. I remember reading some of her books when I was younger.
