      Ridley - "Mary was proclaimed Queen of England on 20 July 1553, and
      as an essential part of what she saw as her God-given mission to
      restore Catholicism and papal supremacy in England, she set about the
      burning at the stake of Protestant heretics with a ruthlessness that
      earned her the name Bloody Mary." "In her short reign - she died in
      1558 - almost 300 Protestants were burnt. They chose to suffer an
      agonizing death rather than recant and embrace the Catholic faith.
      Some of the martyrs suffered more than others. If the faggots were
      wet or the wind changed direction the agony was prolonged. Sometimes
      the victims had a small bag of gunpowder attached to the waist or
      neck which hastened their end. Occasionally, there was a moving
      incident which was interpreted as divine intervention - a dove
      descended over the flames at the moment of death of John Rogers, and
      many in the watching crowd thought that it was the Holy Ghost come
      down to take away his spirit." "In his new book, Jasper Ridley
      captures the fierce brutality of Tudor times and grips the reader
      with his narrative of England's reign of terror." Hardcover with
