Publisher's Summary

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.

The White Princess opens as the news of the battle of Bosworth is brought to Princess Elizabeth of York, who will learn not only which rival royal house has triumphed, Tudor or York, but also which suitor she must marry: Richard III her lover, or Henry Tudor her enemy.

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, and create a new royal family with him and his ambitious mother: Margaret Beaufort, The Red Queen. But, while the new monarchy can win, it cannot, it seems, hold power in an England which remembers the House of York with love.

The new king’s greatest fear is that somewhere, outside England, a prince from the House of York is waiting to invade and re-claim the throne for the house of York. Fearing that none of his new allies can be trusted, Henry turns to his wife to advise him, all the time knowing that her loyalties must be divided. When the young man who would be king finally leads his army and invades England, it is for Elizabeth to decide whether she recognizes him as her brother and a claimant to the throne, or denies him in favor of the husband she is coming to love....

    "A little stale"

    I feel like the book became a little stale as Henry continues to question Elizabeth and she continues to say "I don't know" over and over. Cut some of the middle out and it is good.

    "Princess of York"

    What a great story! Yes it might have been repetitive at times but I fell in love with Elizabeth. I have always loved the Tudor reign (Henry V & Elizabeth l) but never really looked at the beginning of the Tudor reign or even the dynasty of the Plantagenets before them. I am so glad to learn at least a bit of their story and I feel joy and heartbreak for the white princess. Great read if you enjoy English history

    "I DON'T KNOW!!"

    This BOOK was crap. Instead of giving answers it gave I don't knows. Also, Henry is seriously a mental case. I watched the Starz series and thought that this book would be wonderful like the show. I was wrong. The show was MUCH BETTER

    "So monotonous"
    What did you like best about The White Princess? What did you like least?

    I made it through chapter 52 but I can't handle how monotonous this book is anymore! In the beginning you have to hear 'my poor darling Richard, buried in an unmarked grave' a thousand times and then when you get to the middle you have to hear the anatagnist say 'I don't know' a thousand times. If you make it to the end, be prepared to hear 'the boy, the pretender' a thousand and one times. Weak writing and an anatogonist that's hard to root for. I found our Princess to be rather bland. Skip this book.

    "Great Book, great recording"
    If you could sum up The White Princess in three words, what would they be?

    Novelty Emotional Endurance


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The White Princess?

    The End.
    For me was a great journey of these characters and their intentions but only in the end is when you can see something hidden on the entire book.


    What about Bianca Amato’s performance did you like?

    Her voice is perfect for the book.


    If you could rename The White Princess, what would you call it?

    The Last White Rose


    Any additional comments?

    Books based on historical events with fiction are one of my favorite genres.

    "Captivating"

    Did not like the ending..not that it wasn't well written or narrated, but now what I expected. Some parts are a bit too drawn out, but overall a great story. Will read Red Queen and White Queen
