A delightful set of three of Philippa Gregory’s bestselling Tudor Court series, THE QUEEN’S FOOL, THE VIRGIN’S LOVER and THE OTHER QUEEN.
In THE QUEEN’S FOOL, a rivalry between Queen Mary and her half-sister Elizabeth, daughters of Henry VIII, is played out against a background of betrayal, conflict and passion.
THE VIRGIN’S LOVER tells the story of Elizabeth I, now Queen, a position she has waited and schemed for all her life. Surrounded by advisors convinced a woman cannot rule, Elizabeth must make her own way in a life beset by passion, personalities and the politics of the Tudor court.
THE OTHER QUEEN, a dramatic novel of loyalty, passion and betrayal, tells the story of Mary, Queen of Scots, who fights to regain her kingdom whilst under guard of her cousin, Elizabeth I.

Praise for Philppa Gregory:
‘Written from instinct, not out of calculation, and it shows.’
Peter Ackroyd, The Times
‘For sheer pace and percussive drama it will take a lot of beating.’ Sunday Times
‘Gregory is great at conjuring a Tudor film-set of gorgeous gowns and golden-lattered dining. She invokes some swoonsome images…while the politics are personal enough to remain pertinent.’ DailyTelegraph
‘The contemporary mistress of historical crime fiction is Philippa Gregory. Her novels are filled with strong, determined women who take their fate into their own hands…Gregory brings to life the sights, smells and textures of 16th-century England.’ Kate Mosse, Financial TimesAbout the Author:
