I found Freeman's presentation of Patrick somewhat flat. This is a thorough presentation, but Patrick doesn't "come alive" under Freeman's pen. I did enjoy Freeman's translations of Patrick's two extant letters. Patrick's voice shone forth and I felt a connection to this great missionary of the 5th century church.
