Great perspective on those around the king, reminded me a lot of The Constant Princess. ( )

1485. Continuation from The Red Queen. Henry VII, the Pretender, groomed for Kingship by his mother Margaret, takes the crown and marries Elizabeth of York, daughter to Dowager Queen Elizabeth. Narrative though the eyes of the young Queen Elizabeth. Constantly under scrutiny, suspected of lotting against the King who lives his life in fear and unloved by his people of England. ( )

When Henry Tudor picks up the crown of England from the mud of Bosworth field, he knows he must marry the princess of the enemy house—Elizabeth of York—to unify a country divided by war for nearly two decades.

But his bride is still in love with his slain enemy, Richard III—and her mother and half of England dream of a missing heir, sent into the unknown by the White Queen. While the new monarchy can win power, it cannot win hearts in an England that plots for the triumphant return of the House of York.

Henry’s greatest fear is that somewhere a prince is waiting to invade and reclaim the throne. When a young man who would be king leads his army and invades England, Elizabeth has to choose between the new husband she is coming to love and the boy who claims to be her beloved lost brother: the rose of York come home at last.

Throughout the book there wasn’t a particular person I wanted to succeed and that shows how twisted family’s can become. I found it interesting how Philippa Gregory was able to put in tit bits of the future in references to Elizabeth I amongst other things. ( )

In the latest instalment of Gregory's "Cousins' War" series, Henry VII (or Henry Tudor as most subjects insist on calling him) has ascended a wobbly English throne, leaving Richard III in his dust. Pity our narrator, Elizabeth of York – not only Richard's niece and number one fan, but his willing bit on the side (Richard's main course being his ailing Queen Anne). Just when she thought it was safe to be a York daughter, Elizabeth finds herself affianced to none other than moody Henry himself, whom she holds responsible for the excision of Richard's prized organ (his throbbing, brainy head). Neither a man of the people nor a ladies' man, Henry woos his bride-to-be by raping her into pregnancy to assure himself that, if nothing else, his future Queen is fertile. Welcome to that unsettling mixture of sex and violence that was a Tudor speciality until, at least, Elizabeth I dispensed with the sex.

Philippa Gregory has made an impressive career out of breathing passionate, independent life into the historical noblewomen whose personalities had previously lain flat on family trees, remembered only as diplomatic currency and brood mares. And with The White Princess, she makes a psychologically involving page-turner of the reign that Shakespeare skipped.
