Synopsis

From “queen of royal fiction” (USA TODAY) Philippa Gregory comes this instant New York Times bestseller that tells the story of the remarkable Elizabeth of York, daughter of the White Queen, and mother to the House of Tudor.

When Henry Tudor picks up the crown of England from the mud of Bosworth field, he knows he must marry the princess of the enemy house—Elizabeth of York—to unify a country divided by war for nearly two decades.

But his bride is still in love with his slain enemy, Richard III—and her mother and half of England dream of a missing heir, sent into the unknown by the White Queen. While the new monarchy can win power, it cannot win hearts in an England that plots for the triumphant return of the House of York.

Henry’s greatest fear is that somewhere a prince is waiting to invade and reclaim the throne. When a young man who would be king leads his army and invades England, Elizabeth has to choose between the new husband she is coming to love and the boy who claims to be her beloved lost brother: the rose of York come home at last.

Another Great Novel
May 28th, 2014
I love reading these versions of historical fiction. The writer always brings her characters to life. I always end up feeling just how the main character feels. Mainly grief in this novel. The mix of fiction, theory and fact is what makes this novel to enchanting to read. Enough mystery and "what's next" to keep the reader reading. I can't wait for another book in this series!

As always, Phillippa Gregory is immensely readable. She bases her historical novels in fact and seems to be careful in her research. Of course, given the subject matter, this novel creates more questions that it answers, but the fact that I wanted to do more research on the time period attests to her ability to capture the my full attention and imagination. This is a great book to take on vacation.

I usually enjoy Philippa G's books but "The White Princess" was a snore fest. Very, very, very repetitive. Unfortunately, not one of my favorites.

Phillipa Gregory makes history come alive. Once you start to read you have a hard time putting the book down. She turns real historical people and their times into a very enjoyable experience.

I have now read almost all the Philippa Gregory novels about the War of the Roses and their cousins. They are all intriguing and leave you wanting to learn more.
