This is the story of Margaret More Roper and her quest to preserve her father's place in history.
"Without her ... his collected works would be a completely different book and perhaps not exist at all. He would have been diffident about it, preferring to be known as an honest Londoner with the ability to make people laugh."
It seems unjust to the rest of the More children that Margaret Roper is always referred to as More's favorite child, because he loved all of them. A Daughter's Love does a good job of highlighting the special connection between Thomas More and his daughter.
Sadly, it is not available as a Kindle book...yet.
This article was originally published on The Thomas More Book Club in 2010. Since then, A Daughter's Love has been published for the Kindle by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, ASIN B003K16P5U
