These stories are about real people, based on the extraordinarily rich records of the London Church courts at Doctors' Commons. These "sundry immense books of evidence", as Dickens described them, provide a unique archive for the historian. Jane Cox, a genealogist combines sympathy, imagination and scholarship in her reconstruction of the courts and their tales. Her heroes and heroines come from all walks of life, and span the 16th- to the 19th centuries.
