    The White Queen

    A fascinating and compelling story, which puts into perspective the machinations of Plantagenet politics. The historical aspect is extremely well represented, and the non-historical parts very believable.

    The White Queen

    A friend said she could only read Philippa Gregory books after she finished her PhD in history. She found them a distraction from the stresses she had been through and they were easy reads. Another friend who lives near Warwick and has a fascination for the ‘Kingmaker’ also recommended Gregory’s books. I chose The White Queen as my first foray into her work. I enjoyed the story of a remarkable woman at a remarkable time in history; a time I knew very little about. However, I found the ‘I did this’, ‘He did that’ style of storytelling somewhat tedious. Having said that, I would like to read more of Gregory’s books as they offer easy access to a history that I don’t know. I appreciate the bibliography at the end which offers further, more scholarly, reading and the author’s note which explains her approach to the book.

    The White Queen

    I knew little of this time in the history of Kings and Queens of England. So found that very interesting, I liked the summary by Phillipa Gregory at the end, about the research and filling in the gaps. The 1400's must be hard to be certain about the facts. A good story on the whole, for me a bit drawn out in parts, but enjoyable.

    Brilliant

    Brilliantly written and such a thrill to read! I was gutted when I found I had finished the book. I didn’t want it to end
