This book is absolutely wonderful. From the opening scene, as young Thomas lies on the ground watching his father's boot come towards him, you know this is no run of the mill historical novel. The characters are so vividly brought to life and engaging, the politics they are involved with are so dangerous, the consequences of finding yourself on the wrong side of the religious arguments are so brutal, that I was totally absorbed. It's a long book, but I didn't want it to end.
