Another splendid Tudor novel from Jean Plaidy - departing from her usual tales of passions and scandal in the court of Henry VIII, Saint Thomas's Eve tells the story of Sir Thomas More and his ambitious daughters. 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.
