As good as a historical novel can be--fresh, imaginative, sensitively written."

The Man on a Donkey is an enthralling, panoramic historical novel that brings to life one of the most tumultuous times in British history--the reign of King Henry VIII.
_In Part 1, readers are introduced to the world of the Tudors through the lives of five individuals. When King Henry VIII takes his mistress 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 shaken--setting the stage for the momentous events in Part 2 of The Man on a Donkey.
