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.

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.
Ms. gregory has written another intriguing tale during tumultuous times in England. I couldn't put it down, and was glad I had the excuse of a bum knee to keep me still and reading!
This book is as boring as The Other Boleyn Girl was gripping. She writes from the point of view of Elizabeth, yet has her so removed from all the intrigue that there is none of the witty conversation or peek into political machinations that make her other novels so good.
In fact, Elizabeth is so devoid of character she speaks mainly in questions, dumbly repeating what is told to her. It is so frustratingly dull!
