I hated this story. How could the bishop be such a cruel person? I actually skipped pages hoping the story would would turn out better. It turned me off to the Roman Catholic faith of its clergy.

A very good read, It shows the strength of relious zeal in the bishop and the weakness of the convert. Basically it is about the so called superiority of the Roman Catholic faith above the Protestant.

Brilliant book. I have started reading this author recently and love all of his books I have read so far.
