Heiress to the red rose of Lancaster, Margaret Beaufort never surrenders her belief that her house is the true ruler of England and that she has a great destiny before her. Her ambitions are disappointed when her sainted cousin Henry VI fails to recognize her as a kindred spirit, and she is even more dismayed when he sinks into madness.

I usually love Gregory's books... and while I didn't gate the book.. there were times I feel like it was a bit tiring. The piety and send righteousness of Lady Margaret tended to exhaust itself and I found myself not as interested in this book as others. I however liked the story and how it tied to the white princess and filled in holes for me. I also didn't care for the switching off narrators. if you want an overall picture of how so the players and lives overlapped it is with the listen.

Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

the story was okay.. not as good as I was hoping for.. the narration helped to make the story more interesting. Much of the story line was predictable.

most of the stuff I already knew. there really isn't a secret to the three days. in fact she talked about preparing 3 weeks in advance. the one positive was that she reminded me to refocus on just the potty training for the days in a positive way. don't plan anything but the potty training.
