4.0 out of 5 stars An honest and well researched biography, 1 May 2013
This review is from: A Daughter's Love: Thomas and Margaret More (Paperback)
John Guy's account of the lives of Thomas More and his beloved daughter Margaret paints a well-rounded picture of both, as well as his extended family and their shenanigans. The book describes an honest and scrupulous man, his correspondence and friendships with Erasmus and others but doesn't 'airbrush out' the unpleasant details of More's persecution of heretics. He was not the saintly person portrayed in the film, 'A Man for all Seasons,' but a man of his time, sincere in his beliefs.

The book is worth reading for the account of Margaret's life alone. This brilliant and highly intelligent woman has been almost forgotten by history, being 'a mere woman.' Without her efforts to preserve her father's work, we would know a great deal less today about the man behind the myth. More's posterity owes much to his belief in the importance of education for women.
