This review is from: The White Queen (Kindle Edition)
I read this book as I was inspired by the TV series The White Queen and wanted to find out more. Philippa Gregory has a way of writing that puts you, the reader, at the heart of the action. I was there! This book follows ups and downs of the trials of war and covers the love and life of Elizabeth Woodville.
This book puts you there with Elizabeth as a young widow, secret bride to the king, going onto to be a great manipulator at court. I empathised with Elizabeth during her stays in sanctuary, rejoiced with her on regaining her freedom and the throne and then saddened at the loss of her husband and children.
I read this book after reding lady of the rivers ( about her mother Jacquetta) which weaves in beautifully with this story.
These books ( in this series) are telling the story of the cousins war (war of the roses) but from very different points of view. Read them all!
An easy read, but compelling, I couldn't put the kindle down! Very enjoyable!
