The first in a stunning new series, The Cousins War, is set amid the tumult and intrigue of The War of the Roses. Internationally bestselling author Philippa Gregory brings this family drama to colourful life through its women, beginning with the story of Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen The White Queen tells the story of a common woman who ascends to royalty by virtue of her beauty, a woman who rises to the demands of her position and fights tenaciously for the success of her family, a woman whose two sons become the central figures in a mystery that has confounded historians for centuries: the Princes in the Tower whose fate remains unknown to this day. From her uniquely qualified perspective, Philippa Gregory explores the most famous unsolved mystery, informed by impeccable research and framed by her inimitable storytelling skills.

Before I begin I do want to say the book I read was an uncorrected proof so the story I read may be subject to change. Saying that though, if it is changed by anyone they must be mad!

There is no way I'm giving any of this books plot or story away! It is brilliant full stop. It's written by Philippa Gregory. Who wrote some others I've read in the past and wasn't too sure about like, The Favoured Child and The Other Boleyn girl. BUT this one was brilliant. The fact that it rained for a couple of days which forced me inside to read, did me no harm either,

This book follows the Princes in the tower and is a fantastic murder mystery and one that has genuinely gone unsolved for hundreds of years.

As I said I will not give even the slightest allusion as to the story line or what happens. All I will say is don't literally judge this book by the cover. I wouldn't have thought a murder mystery set the thick end of 600 years ago would have been my kinda thing, I couldn't have been more wrong.

I wouldn't recommend sitting down and reading it in 2 or 3 sittings as much as you may want to, make it last, think of it like a fine wine or 30 year old single malt treat yourself, some books I read are the literary equivalent of big dumb action movies, others are more like dramedy, drama/comedy. This is like the 3hr BBC costume drama that everyone watches only to be later surprised that they like it.

 brill start to the new series!

I bought this book as I have read philippa gregory`s tudor series and loved it so thought I`d read her new series on the plantegenets, and I wasn`t disappointed - I read this book in a couple of days; its hard to put down : ) this is a historical novel based on the life of elizabeth woodville who became queen during the war of the roses, which was a time of instability when everyone was switching sides quite a bit so they could try to be on the winning side. throughout this book you see several claimants fighting for the throne of England, so elizabeth and her husband had to struggle to keep their titles; and lives. the white queen, elizabeth, had a difficult life despite her position; some of her family members were murdered, she had children that died, her sons were the infamous princes in the tower, she herself was accused of witchcraft - a very serious offence worthy of the death penalty at the time, and her husband was well known to have had many mistresses throughout their marriage.
I would definately recommend this book : ) well worth reading.
