I love this period in history, and none better than Philippa Gregory for an honest, accurate, and believable recount of the dramatic lives of the Plantagenets and their wives. Elizabeth Woodville is one of many remarkable ladies of this time period.

What you're in for: A widow. A young king. Magic. Love. War. Power. Traitors. Side-switching.

My Thoughts:
Good author. I read The Other Boleyn Girl years ago and instantly became a fan of Philippa Gregory. She is a very good storyteller. She does a great job of turning pieces of history (in this case, partially unknown) into a captivating novel.

I found the story intriguing and I was interested in learning more. I am not a history buff by any means, so it's interesting to learn parts of history while enjoying a novel that is part fiction at the same time. The author portrayed the characters well and was very intuitive as to what may or may not have actually happened. It very well could have gone down this way!

I am not a huge fan of historical fiction. I'm not sure why, as I do find it very interesting. But, I just don't find myself as captivated by historical fiction novels as I do other genres. Having said that, I do plan on reading more from this author. She is worth it to me.

This story was a page turner right from the start. The amazing story of Elizabeth Woodville's rise from country widow to queen of England, the tragedy of her two son's disappearance from the tower of London to her years in exile, sum up the turbulent times of he wars of the roses. I am a bit of history buff so any inaccuracies will grate on my nerves, but Ms Gregory is a well respected writer who has definitely done her research here and produced a stunning portrayal of a time when brother turned against brother and betrayal was a way of life.

This is a pretty interesting book for those interested in this period of history. Gregory does a good job taking the known history and injecting some speculation into it without getting too far off course. I'm not a big fan of the first person, present tense style. And the rigid chronological structure of the book makes it feel a bit like "this happened, and then this happened, and then this happened."

I liked that it was based on truth, & have really developed an interest in History which I never had I school.

I admit to skimming through many parts of this novel. It was interesting to find out more about this period in time, but it read for me more like a history book rather than anything else. The book was mainly one war after another and I am amazed that they all didn't off themselves with all the stress they had to endure!
