Audio Books make people better drivers! I’m never in a hurry to get where I need to go because I would rather be in Tudor England, listening to a good historical fictional novel. Or I could be somewhere far away with dragons and magic, listening to fantasy. When that is too much drama, I love keeping up with fashion and girl talk with one of my favorite “chick lit” novels.
I loved how it fit perfectly with The White Queen. The story of Melusina is so enchanting, and the constant conflicts Jacquetta faces keeps you intrigued.
II don't kinow... maybe with the books I listen because is part of a series, but not the book I'm looking for listeng again in the future
think difficult compare this book to others... But I think this book is like a prequel to the White Queen, since here was presented some facts that started the Cousins's War...
here we have a sense of who was Jaquetta before she was the "mother" of the White Queen. What was her role in the court before Edward of York be king...
For me, a prequel for the serieis.
Wonderful storytelling of an early time in British history. The complex connections of the important players in the drama is sometimes hard to follow.
It was so good that I was surprised when it ended! A lovely story. Make sure that you listen to this one first and then "the white queen" afterwards, as it is the continuing story of this heroine's daughter, Elizabeth (and is equally good!)
Any book by Phillipa Gregory and performed by Bianca is always a treat - this one begins to saga and is as good or better than the rest!! Definitely worth your time and money!!!
I'm not sure what the fuss is about. I love historical romance and this left me wondering why it gets so many stars...and why I crept through this audiobook until the very end. It was an eye rolling chore to listen sometimes. A predictable yawner.
