""The White Princess" features one of the more intriguing theories about the possible fate of the princes." "The Washington Post""
Praise for Philippa Gregory:
The queen of royal fiction. " USA Today""
Full of vivid details and fraught with the constant tension of a court run by a madman, this novel will appeal most to historical fiction readers and those who enjoyed Wolf Hall. . . . Gregory beautifully builds the suspense. Library Journal"
Gregory does her usual excellent job of ratcheting up the intrigue and suspense as another intelligent and strong-willed heroine fights for her life and her legacy. Booklist"
Margaret s story is shocking, deeply moving and offers an alternative view on a much-told tale. Gregory is on form here; her depiction of Henry VIII s transformation from indulged golden boy to sinister tyrant is perfectly pitched and seems more horrific still when we are made intimate witnesses to the devastation of Margaret s family. . . . I defy anyone to remain dry-eyed as the story reaches its tragic denouement. The Sunday Express (UK)"
[A] gripping and detailed chronicle, with plenty of court intrigue and politics to spice up the action . . . . Highly recommended. Library Journal (starred review)"
Nobody does dynastic history like Gregory. Booklist"
This rich tapestry brings to vivid life the court of Henry and Elizabeth. Meticulously drawn characters with a seamless blending of historical fact and fiction combine in a page-turning epic of a story. Tudor-fiction fans can never get enough, and they will snap this one up. Library Journal (starred review)"
“There is only one bond that I trust: between a woman and her sisters. We never take our eyes off each other. In love and in rivalry, we always think of each other.”
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author behind the upcoming Starz original series The White Princess, a gripping new Tudor story featuring King Henry VIII’s sisters Mary and Margaret, along with Katherine of Aragon, vividly revealing the pivotal roles the three queens played in Henry VIII’s kingdom.
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 sisterhood unique in all the world. 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.

Descripción Hardcover. Condición: New. From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the books adapted in the acclaimed Starz seriesThe White Queen comes the story of three rivalrous sisters: Margaret and Mary Tudor, sisters to Henry VIII and their sister-in-law Katherine of Aragon: Three Queens.Raised in the coldly ambitious nursery of their grandmother Lady Margaret Beaufort (The Red Queen) Margaret and Mary Tudor are destined to be queens; competitive Margaret leaves home at thirteen to marry the King of Scotland, and Mary, the beauty of the family, must marry the ageing lecherous King of France. Their brother, Henry VIII, marries his first love, Katherine of Aragon, daughter of the Spanish warrior queen. As the lives of these three women intertwine, as each encounters and survives childbirth, war, and political treachery, they come to see each other as rivals, enemies, confidantes, and allies—but they will always be sisters.Mary will be widowed and defy her brother to marry for love. Margaret will rebel against her brother, divorce, and take a young husband in secret. Katherine will reproach them both for disloyalty to their king, and then, in her turn, drag him through the courts to deny him divorce. Each queen must find her way in a world that sees her as a powerless wife, as they mirror one another, loving and hating what they see, but bound by the even stronger bonds of sisterhood.
