by Margaret Monro
This book gives a brief recount of Margaret Clitherow's life in Elizabethan times and gives some details of her trial. It also covers the last few days of her life in prison and her eventual death in more detail. Her husband said she was the best and most Catholic wife in all England. She invited Catholic priests into her home to say Mass, and for this, she was executed in a barbaric manner by Elizabeth I. A fascinating story of a heroic wife, mother and martyr, Margaret is a true inspirational role model for today on how to live a good Catholic life and also how to stand up for your faith.
