    The Man on a Donkey af H. F. M. Prescott (gabriel)
    gabriel: Both are strongly written novels dealing with the events surrounding The Pilgrimage of Grace. Buchan's "Blanket of the Dark" is more action-oriented, while Prescott's "Man on a Donkey" is more literary and more closely tied to what is known historically.

Beautifully written. Every time I pick this book up I am taken up and drawn in...... I wish I had read it in less anxious environmental and political times when I would have loved this historical fiction set during the time of Henry VIII. However I'm having trouble reading fiction at all at the moment. So at the moment I am oversensitive and I keep getting pulled up by John Buchan's nonsensical notions. The book description has the quote 'under the blanket of the dark all men are alike and all are nameless' - but actually they are not alike - the blood of some of them comes from 'noble' lines (of violence, greed and butchery[ed]) and in Buchan's head that matters.
