This book is great, I love this author she has the ability to tell a story from multiple perspectives depending on what book your listening to and really make you feel as though you are in the story. I have listened to 5 of her books and I love them all equally. If you are thinking about getting into this series it is well worth it!!!!
I love to read . I listen to audio books while in the car, at work and at the gym so that I am always reading.
I love Philipa Gregory's book series on The Cousins War. She has a fantastic way of telling historical fiction. I love European history and can't read enough about the Tudors, the Yorkshire. And so on. This book was really good. Well written. I would recommend reading the whole series.
Does a great job. Easy to listen to.
The Saintly Wife
[This is a review I wrote previously but didn't get around to posting until now.] 4.5 stars; I loved this book. Can't wait until the next one in the series comes out next week! I disagree with other reviewers who complained that this book was not realistic. Philippa Gregory herself says this is a work of fiction describing a period in history about which little is known. She takes the few facts that are recorded and weaves a wonderful tale that is not only plausible, but quite believable in the absence of any other information to the contrary. In addition to the suspense that make this book a page-turner, I really enjoyed the way it pulls together the personalities that were described in such detail in the earlier books in this series. Another great story from Philippa Gregory and another great narration by Bianca Amato.
I loved all of the Philippa Gregory books and this is no exception. She has a wonderful way of teaching history through her fiction and I was sorry to get back to where I began in the series. Although I started later and went back to the books that came before I loved everyone. Highly recommend this series to lovers of historical fiction and strong women!
I would and I have and they have enjoyed this book too. Is worth a re-listen actually.
The White Princess puts a nice ending to the White Queen series. Very interesting information. Long, but very fun.
I would have liked to listen to it in one sitting, but it was way too long.
If you have listened to the series and you enjoyed it you will like this book. Do not be scared off by the horrible reviews. Yes "THE BOY" thing is annoying and Henry is portrayed as a selfish crackpot but that is at the end.
I would compare this to "The Kingmakers Daughter" she is kind of an ambitious "victim" too.
I really enjoy the continuity in the series of her reading. Well done, she make these interesting.
Elizabeth Woodville the Queen Mother.
This book will get you looking up the history of the family!
If the princess knew something
I have read and listened to her other titles, this has to be here worst.
I didn't like this story, the princess was so useless, couldn't do much, didn't know much, was so frustrating, and yet she was so emotional, over analyzing and judgmental.
I've loved reading and writing for as far back as I can remember. I live in Ontario, Canada with my dear dog Joram (Maltese).
I love the writing of Philippa Gregory, her work always puts me through a gamut of emotions. The thing that really stuck out for me with this book was cruelty. Elizabeth of York was treated so cruelly by the King and his mother, yet she maintained her dignity and always acted as a queen should.
There were many heart-breaking moments throughout the book, there were a few times where I needed to stop listening for a while as the injustices were overwhelming me. Yet I was anxious to return to the book, such a spell had been weaved. I have to think what would truly be going on inside the mind and hearts of those who actually lived these lives. What would they make of how we live today?
I consider this one of the greatest books that I've ever read. It certainly ranks above some of the others in this series although I did love each book.
Bianca Amato did an amazing job as narrator! Indeed I may be tempted to check out what else she has narrated.
