From #1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory, the little-known story of three Tudor women who are united in sisterhood and yet compelled to be rivals when they fulfill their destinies as queens.
As sisters they share an everlasting bond; as queens they can break each other’s hearts…
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 unique sisterhood. 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.
I'm a few chapters in and I just feel like it's hard to like the princess, she's very rude and ungrateful and hateful. I would say that in this book and the way the book perverse her she definitely deserves to be named after lady grandmother because she acts just like her
Three Sisters, three Queens
I love Philippa Gregory's books especially The Boleyn Girl but this book had me from the beginning and never wanted it to end. Saw part of filming for White Princess over the summer at Wells Cathedral and can't wait to see the whole story on TV.
Poor Whiny Margaret. . .
I know the author must like challenges, (she's a master writer), but Margaret was downright tiresome as a main character: I admire the author's ability to weave a story but seeing the story to it's end was like serving on jury duty.
