“The dean of Hereford has compiled a delightful book – a cross between John Aubrey’s famous Brief Lives, Thomas Fuller’s The Worthies of England and an ecclesiastical calendar of local saints and, from time to time, villains. Few pages are devoid of someone or something upon which to ponder and reflect, but equally, to fill us with grateful surprise that this ancient area of the Marches succeeded in producing, over the centuries, so many extraordinary saints and sinners.” – Sir Roy Strong
