Publisher's Summary

"There is only one bond that I trust: between a woman and her sisters. We never take our eyes off each other. In love and in rivalry, we always think of each other."

When Katherine of Aragon is brought to the Tudor court as a young bride, the oldest princess, Margaret, takes her measure. With one look each knows the other for a rival, an ally, a pawn, destined - with Margaret's younger sister, Mary - to a sisterhood unique in all the world. The three sisters will become the queens of England, Scotland, and France.

United by family loyalties and affections, the three queens find themselves set against each other. Katherine commands an army against Margaret and kills her husband, James IV of Scotland. But Margaret's boy becomes heir to the Tudor throne when Katherine loses her son. Mary steals the widowed Margaret's proposed husband, but when Mary is widowed it is her secret marriage for love that is the envy of the others. As they experience betrayals, dangers, loss, and passion, the three sisters find that the only constant in their perilous lives is their special bond, more powerful than any man, even a king.

    "Best one yet"
    Would you listen to Three Sisters, Three Queens again? Why?

    I seem to be addicted to historical fiction so when I started to listen to yet another Philippa greggorys books , I wasn't very impressed, thinking it would be another of the same ilk. I was wrong, I couldn't stop listening to it. It is passionate and so well written and even though I know my history I was still left wondering what would happen next


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It is so easy to identify with all the characters I can't have a favourite


    What does Bianca Amato bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Her voice is hypnotic and delicate and lends itself well to this kind of book
    I can't think of a better narrator for it

    Story
    "oh wow. so bad. "

    I used to like philippa gregory but this is seriously over indulgent stuff. so very repetitive and frankly dull

    the interest in this story has everything to do with history and very little to do with the writing. most of it is the speaker moaning about her lot in life. i got so so sick of hearing the words "I am Queen Regent" said in the same self-entitled tone every time. i feel like those words are plastered on the back of my skull.

    the narrator's voice is irritatingly posh. she has one scottish accent for all the various Scottish men portrayed and her french accent slips into russian fairly regularly. that added humour.

    high point was the author's note at the end. genuinely.

    I'm asking myself why I made myself finish it... maybe I secretly loved it? think it was so I could wrote this review hand on heart knowing I'd given the book a fair hearing.

    if i can stop one person paying for and wasting their time on this then I'll consider my charitable work for the year done. just save yourselves!

    "Amazing insight into history"

    such a well known story told from a different perspective. leaves you wanting to follow the history onwards with the wider perspective through Henry's reign onwards into Elizabeths rule

    "Nice idea, becomes wearisome"

    It's always interesting to read or hear something that tries to explain the motivation of historical characters, even if from our modern standpoint we can only dimly appreciate their way of thought. It's a mistake to oversimplify their thinking though, and I feel this book may do that. I'm halfway through it and I already feel irritated by the obsession with precedence and the self absorption of Margaret Tudor, sister of Henry VIII. I find there is something annoying about the narrator too ( but that may be the text). Maybe it's all accurate and she was self centred and annoying. She was very young after all. It's impossible to tell from this book whether the historical sources support this interpretation.

    I think I will press on with it, but I can't say it's uplifting.

    "Good story"
    If you could sum up Three Sisters, Three Queens in three words, what would they be?

    Colourful, fascinating, gripping


    Any additional comments?

    A good retelling of the story of Margaret Tudor. The narrator is quite good with the different voices, however, her attempt at a Scottish accent is laughable.
