Product Description

Review

"[Gregory] again brings insight to English history, recreating the power struggle between two of the nation's most notable women in a tale fresh for modern readers. There's no question that she is the best at what she does." --Associated Press

“An engrossing introduction to three courageous matriarchs who shaped English history.” (Publishers Weekly)

“An engaging and interesting read . . . Fans of Gregory’s novels should enjoy this glimpse into both her creative process and her essays on the three women who served as inspiration for her ‘Wars of the Roses’ novels.” (The Post and Courier (Charleston))

“The publication of two books this season by Philippa Gregory gives us not only two more fascinating portraits of the English Wars of the Roses, it also opens a window onto the way the bestselling author of The Other Boleyn Girl applies her craft.” (Los Angeles Times)

This work of non-fiction is very interesting. Philippa Gregory and two of her cohorts have each written a short story about Margaret of Anjou, Elizabeth Woodville and the mother of King Henry VII, using available historical records and letters. It is a very worthwhile read for those who have interest in history and the Royal Family.

This is not the usual Philippa Gregory novel, but an historical book about the three female characters she writes about in her novels. I found the introduction to the book by Gregory to be the best part of it. I enjoyed it, but not as much as I thought I would.

Philippa Gregory, with the help of two other authors, gives extraordinary details about three 'previously invisible and overlooked' historical women.-- There is no doubt that women played a large role in the monarchies and its many wars, however little is known of them because they were considered "insignificant"; there was no place for them in the recording of "history = his story". Again, Gregory, brings to life the exciting women that most medieval males considered irrelevant, bland, and invisible.

Didn't read closely enough - thought it was a novel by one of my favorite authors! Turns out to be more of a historical factual book - lots of historical facts!!!
