Read in January, 2006

A nonfiction story of anti-Catholic sentiment in Charlestown, MA, early 18th century, culminating in the burning of an Ursuline Convent. The book is a fascinating, well researched story, somewhat redundantly relayed. I recommend this for my Boston and HC friends especially because Bishop Fenwick is a real character in it; the other characters come to life very vividly too.
