    The newest novel from #1 New York Times best-selling author and "queen of royal fiction" (USA Today) Philippa Gregory tells the passionate story of Elizabeth of York, daughter of the White Queen, who gets caught in the middle of a battle for the crown of England. A princess from birth, Elizabeth fell in love with Richard III, though her mother made an arranged betrothal for her with the pretender to the throne: Henry Tudor. When Henry defeats Richard against all odds, Elizabeth has to marry the man who murdered her lover in battle.

    "(Spoiler Alert!) Elizabeth doesn't know."

    Story
    What disappointed you about The White Princess?

    The repetitiveness. This is a problem that I'm noticing in more and more of Gregory's books. The same lines, descriptions, conversations are repeated over and over again. And after characters as strong and determined as Jacquetta, Margaret, and Elizabeth York, this Elizabeth was a bit of a letdown.

    She never seemed to act. I know that she had very little power, but she was so complacent.


    What was most disappointing about Philippa Gregory’s story?

    Since this was all from Elizabeth's point of view, I wish that more of the story could have reflected her life outside of Henry. I would have liked to hear more about her relationship with her children and with Maggie. It would have broken up the monotony of the "I've been forced to marry my enemy" repetitiveness.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Impatience, then disappointment because I thought there would be scenes between her and Katherine of Aragon.
