Having read this book over

Having read this book over the past number of weeks and having been born into a catholic family in Ireland this book has been an eye opener for me. It has given me a clearer understanding to the British opposition to the Catholic faith which may even be somewhat justified. It will open your eyes to what people who follow the Lord are willing to endure for his sake. The chapter on Ireland was specifically interesting for me since I know many of the places mentioned and it brought the reality of it all much closer.
