God’s Traitors is her second book, and has also been widely praised. She was recently described by Charles Spencer in the Sunday Times Magazine as “the best historian we have”.

All the speakers in this series have given their time free to support The Upper Room, a charity based at St Saviour which has been been working to help socially disadvantaged people in London since 1990, including homeless people, economic migrants and ex-offenders.
