Product description

Review

"Gregory returns with another sister act. The result: her best novel in years."

"Gregory delivers another vivid and satisfying novel of court intrigue, revenge, and superstition. Gregory's many fans as well as readers who enjoy lush, evocative writing, vividly drawn characters, and fascinating history told from a woman's point of view will love her latest work."

"Gregory is one of historical fiction's superstars, and "The Kingmaker's Daughter" shows why . . . providing intelligent escape, a trip through time to a dangerous past."

"Wielding magic again in her latest War of the Roses novel ... Gregory demonstrates the passion and skill that has made her the queen of English historical fiction....Gregory portrays spirited women at odds with powerful men, endowing distant historical events with drama, and figures long dead or invented with real-life flaws and grand emotions. She makes history ... come alive for readers."

I loved reading about Jacquetta Rivers. As nobility in her own right, she bears herself with dignity throughout the book, as she seems to have done in reality. Her loyalty to the feckless, and maybe even mad, french Queen, is attested to.
Having read The White Queen some time ago, I was keen to read about the captivating Duchess, her Lady Mother. The book stands alone, but enriches the material in the first of the series, The White Queen.
I lost count of how many children she bore. Astonishing fertility. It is easy to forget that that was the function and fate of most women. That she survived all those births and was able to adore her children, is a remarkable testament to her physical and emotional strength. And as with her daughter, The White Queen, I am seriously in awe of doing all that childbearing and then having the energy to plot and scheme and play the Royal game, and fulfill her duty as a lady at court. But wet-nurses, an army of nannies etc., are factors beyond our modern imagining. there was some sort of liberation in that.
She was indeed a fitting ancestor of Gloriana...fearless, brilliant, and powerfully protective of her own. Yet she married, the second time, for love and was devoted to her husband throughout. A love match amongst nobility seems to have been an unusual thing....at least amongst the York and Lancaster families. Gregory depicts the relationship tenderly.
The scenes dealing with the supernatural were woven deftly into the plot. The atavistic abilities shared with her daughter Elizabeth were given enough balance to allow the reader to sense that the 'magic' engaged in was really a deep attunement and sensitivity to the currents of life.. supported by a focussed intent.

Philippa Gregory at her best. I read this book first as it seemed to be the first chronologically. I couldn't put it down. Gregory has the knack of bringing history alive through the unlikeliest if characters. Jacquetta- unrecognised by history as history as taught in schools is written by victors...and male dominated. Gregory reminds us that behind every great man/ family....

Fascinating, unputdownable read. Educational for anyone interested in the era. Recommended for anyone with an interest in the era who enjoys a good, page-turning read, along with all of the Cousins War and Tudor Court series. Be warned: Philippa Gregory's books in these series can be addictive!

I couldn't put this novel down, each character was so believable. Jaquetta grips the readers attention from first to last page. Historical details made the chapters so life like.
Philippa Gregory's command of the English language makes every page engaging to read.
