From #1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory, the little-known story of three Tudor women who are united in sisterhood and yet compelled to be rivals when they fulfill their destinies as queens.

As sisters they share an everlasting bond; as queens they can break each other’s hearts…

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 unique sisterhood. 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.

Not a good read - another vain, jealous, mean spirited woman of the Tudor court.

Second read and I’m not sure how I got through it the first time. Could there be a more shallow, selfish , and disgustingly nasty princess? She’s her brother Henry Tudor with teets. She revels in the tragedy of others and I can’t even continue listening to this anymore. I love PG’s books but this one is my least favourite.

I did not enjoy this one and really wish that Gregory had given it a skip. The stories of these sisters has been told much better, by other writers, and this is a long, dreary slog. I've been a fan of Gregory in the past but she really missed the mark on this one. Narration on all her books is excellent, Bianco Amato is perfectly matched to these historical romances, but even she can't save Gregory's horrible writing here.

Enjoy historical novels and this is right on the list of great reads. Margaret is portrayed as somewhat bitter and self centered. Perhaps a trait of the times and the author does explain some of her portrayal in the prologue. The narrator was excellent

Philipa Gregory brilliantly juxtaposed known facts with logically derived potentially fictional elements, as always.

Great story! Catherine of Aragon was portrayed as an old hag.

So enjoyable. This novel is rich in historical detail and beautifully crafted where historical details are unknown. While I'm very familiar with Tudor history, I never knew much at all about Margaret so really enjoyed how the author filled in all the blanks about her. The reader was also wonderful and very skilled.

This was a lovely book but it seems the tracks were mixed up. Like the previous reader I felt the book came to a very abrupt end in the middle of a thought. I think the recording should be evaluated by audiobooks. I did not find much help after reporting this to the customer service line. All the recordings are beautifully read by Bianca Amato.

I have read other books by this author. They are well researched and interesting. I had a little trouble following as I sometimes fall asleep listening. It seemed to come to a rather abrupt ending, which was disappointing after so many hours of listening. The narration was excellent. She had different voices for so many of the characters. I'm impressed that anyone can do that!
