Description

Adapted for the STARZ original series, The White Princess.

Love to the Death.

When Henry Tudor picks up the crown of England from the mud of Bosworth field, he knows he must marry the princess of the enemy house—Elizabeth of York—to unify a country divided by war for more than three decades. But his bride is still in love with his dead enemy, and her mother and half of England remain loyal to her brother, the missing York heir.

Henry’s greatest fear is that somewhere a prince is waiting to reclaim the throne. When a young man who would be king invades England, Elizabeth has to choose between the new husband she is coming to love and the boy who claims to be her lost brother: the rose of York come home at last.

“A bloody irresistible read.” —People

“Bring on the blood, sex, and tears!...You name it, it’s all here.” —USA TODAY

From Publishers Weekly

May 06, 2013 – In Gregory s fifth entry in the Cousins War series, marriage unites the upstart House of Tudor with its long-time enemies, the declining House of York, to rule over volatile 1485 England. As Gregory envisions her, narrator Elizabeth of York sister to the princes imprisoned in the Tower, mother of Henry VIII, grandmother of Elizabeth I still loves the vanquished Richard III when she dutifully marries his triumphant challenger, Henry VII. The royal pair produces an heir and two spares but mistrust continues to abound, particularly between the two mothers-in-law, who are seemingly determined to fight the Wars of the Roses down to the last petal. Elizabeth must navigate the treacherous waters of marriage, maternity, and mutiny in an age better at betrayal than childbirth. Gregory believably depicts this mostly forgotten queen, her moody husband, and the future Henry VIII, shown here as a charmingly temperamental child. Something about the Tudors brings out the best in Gregory s portraiture. At this novel s core lies a political marriage seen in all its complexity, including tender moments, tense negotiations, angry confrontations, and parental worries over predictions that the family line will end with a Virgin Queen.

Disappointing

I really wanted to like this book but it went on, and on, and on - only to end abruptly with no conclusion. I guess you need a degree in English history to find out how it ends? I really loved The Other Boleyn Girl but this book doesn't come close to it. What a shame.

This book was amazing

I really tried to like this book!

I have loved every book of Gregory's I've picked up. Except this one. I was wishing it would end and was disappointed when it didn't deliver what I was used to with her fiction. First, the beginning is very well written and I loved it. Then, it just lost all steam. Very disappointed.
