Internationally bestselling author Philippa Gregory brings the tumult and intrigue of The Wars of the Roses to vivid life through the women of the House of Lancaster and the House of York, beginning with the story of Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen.

A woman who won the love of a king and ascended to royalty by virtue of her beauty, Elizabeth fought tenaciously for the success of her family -- her daughter who would one day unite the warring dynasties, and her two sons whose eventual fate has confounded historians for centuries: the Princes in the Tower. An active player in the power struggles that surrounded her, she made hard and courageous choices, always trying to protect those whom she loved. Informed by impeccable research and framed by her inimitable storytelling skills, Philippa Gregory gives an unforgettable voice to an extraordinary woman at the heart of a devastating conflict.

Review:

'It would be hard to make history more entertaining, lively or engaging' "Sunday Express

"

'Queen of the historical novel' "Mail on Sunday

"

'Gregory brings to life the sights, smells and textures of 16th-century England' "Kate Mosse", "Financial Times"

'Rollicking, page-turning stuff' "Metro"

'Of Woodville herself, Gregory makes a fascinating heroine; strong, ambitious, vengeful, beautiful and tinged with more than a hint of witchcraft. Popular history at its best' "Daily Mail"

'History comes gloriously alive as widowed Elisabeth Woodville of the House of Lancaster seduces and marries Yorkist King Edward IV. From then on conflict, betrayal and murder stalk her life as the Queen of England' "Mirror"

'As with The Other Boleyn Girl, Gregory's clever blend of fact and fiction is a lot racier than the average historical biography ... her tale of Elizabeth Woodville's tenacious fight for her family's position during the Wars of the Roses oozes sex appeal and suspense' "Glamour magazine"

'Lady Margaret Beaufort - cold, clever, calculating - will stop at nothing to put her son Henry Tudor on the throne. Gregory is very good at describing the bitchiness of the women in this tale of dynastic rivalry' "Telegraph"

'Entrancing' "Telegraph"

'an informative and riveting read from start to finish' "Edinburgh Evening News"

'Gregory brings this period of history and another strong female character to life with the same colour and intrigue she applies to all her novels' "Glasgow Evening Times"

'A gripping read' "South Wales Echo

"

'...whips along with lashings of historical intrigue' "Company

"

'Gregory's novels are, in fact, meticulously researched pieces of historical scholarship. For each novel she immerses herself in dozens of primary and secondary sources, before transforming them into vivid fiction' "Sunday Telegraph"

"Gregory returns with another sister act. The result: her best novel in years."

"Gregory delivers another vivid and satisfying novel of court intrigue, revenge, and superstition. Gregory's many fans as well as readers who enjoy lush, evocative writing, vividly drawn characters, and fascinating history told from a woman's point of view will love her latest work."

"Gregory is one of historical fiction's superstars, and "The Kingmaker's Daughter" shows why . . . providing intelligent escape, a trip through time to a dangerous past."

"Wielding magic again in her latest War of the Roses novel ... Gregory demonstrates the passion and skill that has made her the queen of English historical fiction....Gregory portrays spirited women at odds with powerful men, endowing distant historical events with drama, and figures long dead or invented with real-life flaws and grand emotions. She makes history ... come alive for readers."
