This was a time when the wrath of the King meant death. In the heart-rending drama of Henry VIII's rejection of his devoted wife Katherine after more than 20 years of marriage, a heroic and important role was played by a little-known priest from Essex. The King claimed that in marrying Katherine, he had broken God's law. Many believed he was abandoning her because of his infatuation with Anne Boleyn. On a secret mission to Spain, Thomas Abell, the Queen's Chaplain, sought to destroy the King's case for divorce. Back in England he argued against the King both in print and from the pulpit. In this book, Jon Lander uncovers a little-known story of courage and devotion in the face of extreme danger.
