Do you know that Philippa Gregory's latest release, The White Queen, will be released on August 18, 2009?


Book description:

Philippa Gregory, "the queen of royal fiction" (USA Today) Presents the first of a new series set amid the deadly feuds of England known as the Wars of the Roses.

Brother turns on brother to win the ultimate prize, the throne of England, in this dazzling account of the wars of the Plantagenets. They are the claimants and kings who ruled England before the Tudors, and now Philippa Gregory brings them to life through the dramatic and intimate stories of the secret players: the indomitable women, starting with Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen.

The White Queen tells the story of a woman of extraordinary beauty and ambition who, catching the eye of the newly crowned boy king, marries him in secret and ascends to royalty. While Elizabeth rises to the demands of her exalted position and fights for the success of her family, her two sons become central figures in a mystery that has confounded historians for centuries: the missing princes in the Tower of London whose fate is still unknown. From her uniquely qualified perspective, Philippa Gregory explores this most famous unsolved mystery of English history, informed by impeccable research and framed by her inimitable storytelling skills.

With The White Queen, Philippa Gregory brings the artistry and intellect of a master writer and storyteller to a new era in history and begins what is sure to be another bestselling classic series from this beloved author.

    I would love to read this book. I was born in Yorkshire and at the time the 'War of the Roses' was an important part of our local history: but I haven't read anything since, so this would be a wonderful re-introduction so to speak.Get to my roots again. Wonderful.

  3. Jennifer Dee Says:

    Just a further comment on my previous one. I have just visited the web site of Phillipa Gregory and it really is very good. From childhood I have always love anything to do with the Plantagenets. I have also just received the latest edition of the Radio Times and the BBC new series of 'The Tudors' start again on Friday 21 August. So anyone interested in this part of our history should watch this great series.
