The women in this book were Christians of outstanding courage and conviction. They were not flawless heroines but in their times of trial showed themselves to be brave, intelligent women, of strong character and radiant spirit, living for the Lord who had saved them and whom they had come to know as the only Saviour by grace alone through faith alone. See how God has exercised his sovereignty in history – in the public sphere as well as in the lives of individuals – and be inspired to love Christ more.
Elaine Snuggs has a degree in history from Southampton University and a postgraduate diploma from the College of Librarianship Wales. She worked for Dorset County Library and later helped her husband run the Dunstable Christian bookshop. They have a son and two grandchildren and now live in West Yorkshire.
Women are too often left out of our history, especially Christian history. This book helps to redress the balance by telling the story of four women from Tudor England who played significant roles in the stirring times in which they lived and maintained a clear evangelical testimony amidst the difficulties that they faced. This very readable and moving account will inform, inspire, edify and challenge men and women.

… a very insightful view of the nitty–gritty of life in Tudor times – particularly in the higher strata of society.

What a lively presentation of some of the women involved in the English Reformation! Elaine Snuggs has written a most energetic and revealing account of some of its key figures, albeit not quite on the front line. Not only does she write the story well, but she captures something of the spirit of the times.

… it is bracing and convicting to read of the way in which each of these women counted it a privilege to stand and suffer for Christ.
