Come Rack Come Rope (Benson)
By Robert Hugh Benson
Come Rack, Come Rope is one of Robert Hugh Benson’s best-known novels. Based on true events and individuals in the time of the Elizabethan persecution of Catholics in England, it centers on Robin and Marjorie, who give up their love for another and hope of marriage in order to minister to their persecuted neighbors.
Masterfully weaving the historical source material with his own creative additions, Benson presents an unflinchingly truthful portrayal of the terror of those times along with an achingly beautiful depiction of true faith.
Benson was one of the brightest lights in the Catholic literary firmament... ~Joseph Pearce
