The Man on a Donkey

(1952)
A novel by

 
 
'A classic of historical fiction' HILARY MANTEL.

'By widespread assent, one of the finest historical novels ever written. It may even be the finest' TLS.

Sir John Uvedale had business at Coverham Abbey in Wensleydale, lately suppressed, so he sent his people on before him to Marrick, to make ready for him, and to take over possession of the Priory of St. Andrew from the Nuns, who should all be gone by noon or thereabouts.

In 1536, Henry VIII was almost toppled when Northern England rose to oppose the Dissolution of the Monasteries. An enthralling novel about a moment in history when England's Catholic heritage was scattered to the four winds by a powerful and arrogant king.

Genre: Historical
