Product Description

About the Author

Philippa Gregory was an established historian and writer when she discovered her interest in the Tudor period and wrote the international bestseller The Other Boleyn Girl, which became a major film starring Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson. She has written several bestselling novels set in the Tudor period and The Cousins' War series which is to be a major TV production. This book is the first of a new series of novels set in medieval Europe: Order of Darkness. Philippa's other great interest is the charity that she founded nearly twenty years ago: Gardens for The Gambia. She has raised funds and paid for 160 wells for the primary schools of this poor African country. A former student of Sussex University, and a PhD and Alumna of the Year at Edinburgh University, her love of history is the hallmark of her writing. She lives with her family on a small farm in Yorkshire. She welcomes visitors to her site www.PhilippaGregory.com

The three essays in this book are engrossing and entertaining accounts of these three important women. Whilst they are mainly hidden from public accounts at the time, the writers piece together their lives as accurately as currently possible, making it clear when information is being interpreted or extrapolated. I found the writing of each essay measured and credible, breathing life into these women and making them real. The essays are tantalising and left me wanting to know more. Having read Philippa Gregory's enthralling fictionalised novels, these historical essays help you to understand what is known and where Philippa Gregory has brought her rich and informed interpretations to the characters.

This did an excellent job of filling in the bare facts around the cousins war as far as these three characters are concerned. I was particularly interested in Margaret Beaufort's story - the facts of her life and activity. Until I read this I couldn't get a feel of her character. The essay "scratches the itch".
I was also delighted to have Philippa Gregory's introduction about writing history and especially history with strong women players.
It lifted the book from being just about individuals to putting them in a larger context. - and always in a very readable way.

I found this book to be a good background to the Plantaganet history and their War of the Roses.

A great book followed up very accurately by the program on the TV earlier this year. Would recommend this if you enjoy Kings and Queens history.

Although I really enjoy her books I think this one is not as good as the others. The fact that it is written with someone else has weakened it.
