Ms. Gregory brings history to life, read the books in order and enter a world of intrique, witchcraft and the lives of the ruling class during the Wars of the Roses.
Thoroughly enjoyable.

I have enjoyed reading many of Philippa Gregorys Tudor based novels and this is another enjoyable read. I couldn't put it down and would definately recommend it to others. I did feel that this novel just stopped - more so then the others I have read, however still a good read.

  The White Queen

| | See all Tiffers72's reviews (47)

I read this book (the first in a trilogy) after reading and enjoying Philippa's previous books.

I was a little disappointed with this one, although it cannot be denied this is a fascinating era, which has not been overly written about, I felt it was too historical at times, and a little lacking on the fiction. I found it a little hard to get into, and I had to make myself carry on reading.

However, if you have read Philippa's books before, it is worth a read, if not, then I would recommend "The Other Boleyn Girl" and the "Boleyn Inheritance", both of wich are great.

I have read all of Philippa Gregory's novels, and was really disappointed with this one. I enjoyed all of The Tudor Court novels (Except The Other Queen) and felt this book lacked something. I can't fault PG for how factual the book is but I felt like I was reading a history book not a fiction book. It's a shame as The Other Boleyn Girl, The Queens Fool, The Virgins Lover, The Constant Princess and The Boleyn Inheritance are all well wriiten and I couldn't put them down!

If you enjoyed the tudor court novels, you will love this novel. It is set before the tudors at the war of lancaster and york houses. The heroine Elizabeth Woodville is beautiful, srong and ambitous character. You can believe you are her and feel her happiness and her deepest sorrow. Well done to phillipa cant wait for the red queen to be released.
