Buchan, John: The Blanket of the Dark. V1. 6 Apr 2011
John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir PC GCMG GCVO CH (26 August 1875 – 11 February 1940) was a Scottish novelist and Unionist politician who served as Governor General of Canada, the 15th since Canadian Confederation.
It is 1536, and the Reformation has yet to disrupt the life of the great medieval Abbey of Oseney near Oxford, where a young man known as Peter Pentecost is completing his education. But Peter's life is about to be changed forever when he uncovers the astonishing secret of his true identity, a secret that has been kept from him all his life: that he is the son and heir of Edward, Duke of Buckingham, and by rights he, not Henry Tudor, should be King of England. His anonymous life at Oseney has been carefully arranged to keep him from harm--until the day arrives when those who have been watching over him are ready to challenge Henry VIII.
From the moment Peter discovers the truth, he descends into a dangerous world of conspiracy and treason, as powerful men seek to persuade him to leave behind the security and tranquility of his life at Oseney and risk everything in a rebellion that could put him on the throne of England.
