The Man on a Donkey, Part 1
The Man on a Donkey by H. F. M. Prescott is the newest addition to the Loyola Classics series. This enthralling two-part historical novel brings to life one of the most tumultuous times in British history—the reign of King Henry VIII.
In Part 1 of The Man on a Donkey, readers are introduced to the world of the Tudors through the intertwined stories of a prioress, nobleman, gentlewoman, squire, and priest. When King Henry VIII takes his mistress, Anne Boleyn, as his new wife, seizes Church property, and declares himself the only supreme head of the Church of England, the lives and fortunes of these five people are utterly shaken.
