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<br/>

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<br/>I can't think of a better narrator for it

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.

Interesting

An interesting book about Henry VIII 's sister Margaret who became the Queen of Scotland.
I found it interesting as I hadn't read much about her before and I liked the portrayal of her character in the book.
The book also shows what a hard life female royalty had in the middle ages.

Another Gregory treat!

Superb storytelling with a wealth of history of a lady of whom we know so little. Women were not regarded with much respect or interest in Tudor times.

Brilliant as usual

Great book, lovely narration, The book had me enthralled from start to finish and certainly makes my car journeys a lot more enjoyable and even the odd traffic jam doesn't bother me now!!
I will definitely get more of her books and will seek out ones read by Bianca.

Terrible

I cannot stand to finish it, terrible story and whining narration does not make it pleasant.
