Summary:

The newest novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author and “queen of royal fiction” (USA TODAY) Philippa Gregory tells the passionate story of Elizabeth of York, daughter of the White Queen, who gets caught in the middle of a battle for the crown of England.

The White Princess opens as the news of the battle of Bosworth is brought to Princess Elizabeth of York, who will learn not only which rival royal house has triumphed, Tudor or York, but also which suitor she must marry: Richard III her lover, or Henry Tudor her enemy.

A princess from birth, Elizabeth fell in love with Richard III, though her mother made an arranged betrothal for her with the pretender to the throne: Henry Tudor. When Henry defeats Richard against all odds, Elizabeth has to marry the man who murdered her lover in battle, and create a new royal family with him and his ambitious mother: Margaret Beaufort, The Red Queen. But, while the new monarchy can win, it cannot, it seems, hold power in an England which remembers the House of York with love.

The new king’s greatest fear is that somewhere, outside England, a prince from the House of York is waiting to invade and re-claim the throne for the house of York. Fearing that none of his new allies can be trusted, Henry turns to his wife to advise him, all the time knowing that her loyalties must be divided. When the young man who would be king finally leads his army and invades England, it is for Elizabeth to decide whether she recognizes him as her brother and a claimant to the throne, or denies him in favor of the husband she is coming to love…

    This book got me hooked. I finished it in a span of 3 days. The app itself is easy to use and I will definitely listen to more Philippa Gregory books.

  • Kelli H

    Excellent book. I love this series! Can't wait to finish the rest of her books.

  • Leah Shoup

    While it was definitely not up to par with White Queen, I still enjoyed this book. The narrator's voice is very enjoyable!

  • Lamoria Washington

    I don't see how people are saying this is a good read. It's just the same scene over and over again. It's always either 'I don't know' or 'it's the boy'. You read these phrases again and again. I did not like it.

  • Valentyna Dergachova

    I became addicted to this series. This book like the others is very interesting and the narration is quite suiting for the story. Eager to read the last book in the series!

    In this book you discover that Margaret Beaufort has no goal in life but to control the universe. But really, the book is a compassionate story of Elizabeth of York. She was a woman in the middle of York and Tutor rivalries who did her best to honor her mother, her husband the king, and love and protect her children. I admire her.

  • Carrie Birkle
