Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author and “queen of royal fiction” (USA TODAY) Philippa Gregory brings to life the story of Jacquetta, Duchess of Bedford, a woman of passion and of legend who navigated a treacherous path through the battle lines in the War of the Roses to bring her family unimaginable power.

When the young and beautiful Jacquetta is married to the older Duke of Bedford, English regent of France, he introduces her to a mysterious world of learning and alchemy. Her only friend in the great household is the duke’s squire Richard Woodville, who is at her side when the duke’s death leaves her a wealthy young widow. The two become lovers and marry in secret, returning to England to serve at the court of the young King Henry VI, where Jacquetta becomes a close and loyal friend to his new queen.

The Woodvilles soon achieve a place at the very heart of the Lancaster court, though Jacquetta has visions of the growing threat from the people of England and the danger of their royal York rivals. Jacquetta fights for her king and queen, as she sees an extraordinary and unexpected future for her daughter Elizabeth: a change of fortune, the white rose of York, and the throne of England…

    Woah! I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book and now want to read more of Philipia's work. I haven't read for myself in some time, don't have much time on my hands as it is but finished in a week because of how much this book kept my interest. The design of her writing flows very nicely and because there aren't chapters per se the book goes much faster. Onto the Red Queen!

    I first read Gergory’s The White Queen and completely fell in love with Elizabeth Woodville and her life, I wish I would have read this one first because Jacquetta has became one of my most beloved characters of all time. Her story has got me completely wanting to know as much about the mediaeval times as possible. I grew to hate Queen Margaret but, Jacquetta and Richard’s love story kept me wanting more. I cannot wait to read The White Princess, I have such high hopes after this book and The White Queen.

    It took me a while to first get into, but once I started I couldn't put it down and read it straight for two days until I finished it. Now I'm desperately searching for the rest of her books.
