5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Great Historicals TOP 500 REVIEWER on Aug. 28 2012
Format: Hardcover
Anne Neville was a lesser known noblewoman and queen of England. In The Kingmaker’s Daughter, Philippa Gregory brings Anne to vibrant life by writing about her difficult life and subsequent rise to glory as Queen of England. What is most heart-wrenching about Anne’s story is that she and her sister, Isabel, were pawns to the men in their lives whose quest for power was relentless.

Although Anne is not the spirited, feisty heroine of other historical biographical novels, she is truly fascinating. It is important that these women’s lives are written about, not only to show the extent of their suffering at the hands of the men surrounding them, but to clearly reflect the true status of women and their lack of rights in all eras of history. What is important is that Philippa Gregory has written a true and accurate accounting of this woman’s life, and that is what I applaud highly. Her conflict with Elizabeth Woodville is deep and all encompassing throughout the novel and makes for a fascinating story-line.

Although Anne is not the fiery heroine, the conflict surrounding her is all consuming and makes for fast page-turning. The novel captures the reader’s interest from the very first to the very last page. It is eloquently written with believable characters, an incredible amount of brilliant descriptions, and wonderful emotion.

The Kingmaker’s Daughter is the fourth book in a series about the women in Cousin’s War Series - Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort, and Jacquetta Woodville. It is not necessary to read this in any particular order. It is fascinating to see how the author moves between these characters, fairly depicting them and their personalities, despite their faults. Fans of Philippa Gregory will definitely enjoy this novel set in a disorderly and dangerous period in England’s rich history. I highly recommend this! What a wonderful story!

Format: Hardcover
This novel is such a wonderful book to read. The narrator is Anne, the sister of Isabel, and the story Anne tells of their perilous lives. With parents whose only sight was winning, and a mother who wished to advance herself only, it shows how people became pawns in order to win. I love the description of the dresses, the lands, the ways in which people actually lived during those times. Thank you to this author for taking me on a readable journey that I loved!!

Philippa Gregory never disappoints and she certainly did not in this book - excellent - her historical research is great - she had me checking some things out on Google - great read.

Gregory brings all her characters alive and captures the tension and drama of the period. This makes for a very enthralling story. Beautifully read by the actor. I have bought copies as gifts for members of my family.
