5.0 out of 5 stars Anne Neviile, wife, widow, prisoner, Queen, 28 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Kingmaker's Daughter (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 Anne Neville. Anne was the youngest daughter of Warwick the Kingmaker and was a pawn in the game of war.
The author has well researched the events of the time and wove them into this very plausible story.
I had great sympathy with Anne as I read this book. She was a woman at the control of the whims of men, as they changed their allegiances. It was always about her place and the best marriage, Poor Anne is married to her enemy's son in a cruel loveless marriage only arrange because of who she was and her father's ambitions. Then as a widow, she is virtually under house arrest in order for her sister's husband, Prince George, to claim her lands. Then rescued by Richard (111) she eventually becomes Queen of England fulfilling her father's ambitions.
Sadly...this doesn't last long and again Anne knows tragedy.
An easy read, but compelling, I couldn't put the kindle down! Very enjoyable!
