This book was so sad and gruesome. If it has been fiction, I never would have believed that one person could handle so much pain; mental and physical.
This was a very good short story, very much in the style of Dumas. It's about a Cardinal, though, not a bishop. :0)
My favorite! I couldn't put it down as every line holds a suspense that draws me deeper into the mystery. Warm, rommantic, yet thrilling and cruel.
An excellent reference for any one who cares about English language.
