Format: Hardcover
Jennifer Kewley Draskau writes a wonderful biography on Henry VIII youngest sister. Easy to read, this book fills out the outline of Mary Rose, youngest child of Elizabeth and Henry VII. While most know her as "The White Queen", teenage widow of the French King, that secretly wed Henry's best friend, this book describes her dazzling wit, as well as her iridescent charm. Draskau often uses young Mary's own letters and we get to know this bright, young lady. We watch her grow to be a major arbiter of French fashion, and a darling of the Tudor court. If she lived today, no doubt she'd have a bang up reality show! We get a nice portrait of her older sister Margaret, describing her marital troubles too. The book then goes on to describe her many descendants and their impact on the shape of history. Well done! Hope to see more from this author.

I have read a lot of books about the Tudor period and Mary Rose is always just in the background so was pleased to find a book about her excellent read

Terrific history! 12 Aug. 2013
By Jamie Potlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Beautifully written and wonderfully researched book. I could not put it down. There are not many books written about the first Mary Tudor. This one sets that bar very high. This is the way history should be done!

A pleasure reading of the "Tudor Rose!" 23 Nov. 2013
By JGB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Ahhhhh, what a pleasure it was to delve into the story of the "Tudor Rose!" One does not often get a chance to discover the life of Henry VIII's younger sister, Mary.. This book gives one the true story, not the TV Showime presentation of "The Tudors," Henry's sister Margaret, who was really Mary(the Tudor Rose) and she married the aging King of France, not Portugal as the TV production depicted! In addition, the author explains how the marriage union of Mary and Charles Brandon produced heirs that were in contention for the throne for the next 50 years!
Plagerized 24 Feb. 2015
By MGL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was reading this book and had a sense of reading this before. I took out my book on Mary and Margaret by Maria Perry and this author plagerized it. Not only that book but also the Sister Who Would Ne Queen's by Leanda de Lisle. I think it's horrible that a plagerized book was published.
