Summary:

Brother turns on brother. The throne of England is at stake. The deadly Wars of the Roses have begun. . . .

They ruled England before the Tudors, and now internationally bestselling author Philippa Gregory brings the Plantagenets to life through the dramatic and intimate stories of the secret players: the indomitable women.

Elizabeth Woodville, a woman of extraordinary beauty and ambition, secretly marries the newly crowned boy king of England. While she rises to the demands of her exalted position and fights for the success of her family, her two sons become the central figures in a famous unsolved mystery that has confounded historians for centuries: the lost princes in the Tower of London. Philippa Gregory brings the artistry and intellect of a master writer and storyteller to a new era in history and begins what is sure to be another bestselling classic series.

    I just wish there was an unabridged version available. The story was still very good, but you could tell things were moving too quickly without complete resolution - which I attribute to it being abridged. Enjoyed the reader's voice though!

    This series is amazing! It is a wonderful story well written by Philippa with as much history and research jam packed in as possible with it still being extremely interesting.
