C J Sansom's Shardlake books have the same easy to read style as Philippa Gregory's.

You might also want to try the epic Pillars of the Earth (by Ken Follet) and The Sunne in Splendour (by Sharon Kaye Penman).

For a more challenging read, try Hilary Mantel (Wolf Hall and Bringing up the Bodies).

Try Josephine Tey - Daughter of Time, it gives a different perspective to Richard III and is very interesting.

Am I the only person that really can't get on with her books? I tried The Other Boleyn Girl but, despite loving that period of history, I couldn't get into it. Then, having really enjoyed the white queen on BBC, I tried The White Queen. Again, I couldn't get on with it.

I don't like her stuff that much. There are other historical authors who are far better reseachers e.g. Plaidy. Gregory seems to concentrate on sex.

Someone has just alerted me to this. I can only apologise if someone is using my identity. I will attempt to deal with it. (I have now had the offending post deleted. It had been posted by 'English Teacher' who is one of my readers and is known to me. I don't think she realised she was doing anything wrong as other authors were being recommended on the thread.)
