The White Princess


Item Details

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 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.

My favorite book out of the series. Made me hate the red queen even more ( she wasn"t ever really a queen btw just the king's mother. ) Elizabeth of York had such a harrowing life and her husband the king. I found him to be quite a mama's boy, on top of a wimp. This book makes me want to dive into the Tudor series next. I can't wait to read more about Elizabeth of York and her children, maybe some about King Henry but not much.

I really enjoyed this book. I carried it around for days so that I could read whenever I had a few moments. I do agree with prior comments that the main character seemed weak but I thought it fit the story.

I was disappointed especially having just finished The Kingmaker's Daughter. Elizabeth is portrayed in what seems to be a 21st Century mindset trapped in the 15th Century. The ignorance of her own stature shows Elizabeth to be weak and whiny. This is highly unusual for a female protagonist in a Philippa Gregory book.

Overall, this was a very readable fictionalized account of life in early Tudor court and of Henry VII’s exhausting attempts to hold onto the crown. I just had a couple of beefs with this book: at times it was poorly edited (typos!) and I found that the character of Elizabeth of York was a spineless doormat throughout most of the book.

I so enjoyed Philippa Gregory's interpretation of this period of history. She has a great ability to make historical figures and events come alive for her readers. Her portrayal of Elizabeth of York and the dreadful dilemmas she had to live with all her life is masterly.

Not the best of Philippa Gregory's Cousins' War series. If you have read the White Queen and Red Queen you might find some of the passages repeditive. If you don't know the Tudor history this is an entertaining way to get a little understanding of some of the key players in history.

I am beyond excited to read this book! THEY'RE HERE! THEY'RE HERE! THE 4 COPIES THEY HAVE ORDERED SO FAR ARE HERE! Don't worry, if you are #5+ in the Reserve Line, because they have ordered another 5! I'll read mine fast and get it back out into the system! But I will cherish it, as all other Gregory Books!

I love her works, and look forward to reading the White Princess

Me too! I love her writing, the research she does, and of course, the whole time period! Can't wait to read it, and I promise I'll read it really fast so it can go to the next person eagerly waiting!
