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....

    "Nice book, great views and insights & entertaining"

    I enjoyed this book and the writer's views on Elizabeth of York and Henry Tudor. Especially her opinions of the York princes Richard and Edward.

    "History comes alive"

    I enjoyed the story. the reader, however, distracted from the enjoyment. I found her too monotone and did not distinguish the voices one from another well. in all I would recommend the book

    "Great Historical Fiction"

    I have been interested in the tales of Medieval Times and this is a story that weaves lives of real characters and plots in history with a realism and historical context that allows you to learn something about the period and enjoy the rich layers of plot, intrigue, romance and daily life of the time period. Much enjoyed, well performed.

    "Fantastic!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The White Princess to be better than the print version?

    No, I tink both versions are wonderful, but I prefer the áudio version, because I can listen while I work.


    What other book might you compare The White Princess to and why?

    I think any book of Plhillipa Gregory can be compare to this because all the have historical events and fiction.


    Have you listened to any of Bianca Amato’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She was perfect. I love her voice. Is amazing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is fantastic. I find it incredible how Phillipa manages to put together a few hieroglyphic facts and imagine how it was the lives of two people - from hated families - united by convenience.

    "Not very pleased with this book"

    I love Philippa Gregory and have read most of her books, but I have had so much trouble finishing this one. I've been reading it since May and I am only have way thru. I have read 10 books since I bought this one. And I don't think I will finish it. It's just boring, it drags, it's a waste of time. A real shame!!!
