Fascinating, interesting book focussing on Jacqetta of Luxembourg .,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lady of the Rivers (Cousins War Series Book 3) (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 the love and life story of Jacquetta ( the mother of Elizabeth Woodville aka The White Queen). The author has well researched the events of the time and wove them into this very plausible story. She has focusssed in the alleged witchcraft aspects to this character and made this an integral and believable part of the story.
The story begins with Jacquetta befriending Joan of Arc ( a hostage in her families keeping) and goes onnfrommthere, through Jacquetta's first marriage, second marriage and beyond to being mother, confidant, supporter of her daughter Elizabeth as queen.
An easy read, but compelling, I couldn't put the kindle down! Very enjoyable!
Although this book is numbered 3 I would suggest that it is read irst in the series.
