Publisher Description

As the King's young cousin, an admired scholar living in Italy, it

falls to Reginald Pole to make the case for Henry's divorce from

Katherine of Aragon. And it falls to the hapless Michael Throckmorton -

the younger son of an impecunious titled family - to become Thomas

Cromwell's messenger to Pole in Rome.



This dubious privilege makes of Throckmorton's life a tragicomedy of

endless journeys back and forth between England and Italy, but it also

makes him a canny observer of the great dramas of his time. And like his

King, he too nurses a thwarted desire.
