This was my first Philippa Gregory novel and it was such an excellent introduction to the author and genre It actually inspired me to read historical fiction by a variety of writers I like Gregory s style because the history and intensity is not sacrificed by the romance in the plot Indeed the romance is a mere element of the story and not the story itself So now many years later I m glad I picked this book up I like Gregory s Elizabeth she has such sharp claws A woman who knows what she wants Philippa is a master at getting into the mind of these historical figures she takes the events and narrates them from the perspective of how the said character may have perceived them Elizabeth Woodville is many things she is a courageous woman and a loyal wife she is ambitious and deadly she is strong and ruthless To some she is even considered a witch but firstly and undeniably she is a concerned mother This worriment over the fate of her children is exactly what makes her ueen of England her concern drives her to seek protection under the banner of York To save my son I would plot with the devil himself Her first husband has died fighting for the red rose he has died under the banner of Lancaster So Elizabeth is widowed and in need of protection Her family are seen as traitors by the new Yorkist regime they are enemies of the crown So what better way than to appear as if by random out of the woods like a fairy tale princess to gain the King s heart Elizabeth seduced the King and he was than happy to oblige her but she was clever enough to gain some surety before giving herself fully to him thus she joins the house of York in a very well written opening to this book Elizabeth s story The marriage of Elizabeth and Edward IV began with passion and heat it ended with political upheaval I love the way Elizabeth has been written it is such a way that suggests that her actions could be driven by a mother s natural instinct to protect her children and then at the same time suggests that she is merely plotting for her own power lust I personally think it was a little bit of both She feared Richard but she also wanted to remain ueen This was uite a pivotal moment for history because if the two had reconciled then perhaps together they could have saved the white rose of York English history and society would be remarkably different But that would never have happened Both factions of the house of York wanted the power and wanted to be rulers of England Elizabeth ensured her own security by keeping one of her boys out of Richard s supposedly dirty hands This young York boy appears later in the The White Princess as Perkin Warbeck Indeed Gregory leaves herself room for later scandal lies and pure intrigue I love this series and I love the way she has written her characters It s an interpretation that historically could be true and accurate But at the same time she never points any fingers She shows us how things have happened but at the same time doesn t directly say who was responsible she suggests just enough that every character has eual blame I m of course referring to the murders of the princes in the tower In this I feel that Gregory is completely impartial The Cousin s War Series 1 The White ueen A strong four stars2 The Red ueen A fair three stars3 The Lady of the Rivers A Margretless two stars

If there is love enough then nothing not nature not even death itself can come between two who love each other The White ueen is the seuel to The Lady of the Rivers and they both had their strengths and weaknesses They each tell the story of a powerful woman in a kingdom ruled by men These women fight for their lives their loves and their children out of a sense of survival as well as out of ambition and a hunger for powerEven though their stories are this impressive I often struggled to find the motivation to keep reading This has nothing to do with Gregory s talent as a writer and everything with the tiring wars and battles that divided the country and lost my interest for the book It s historical fiction These battles and fights these long rides through the country and on the sea really happened and it wouldn t make any sense if they didn t show up in this book But what I m interested in is life at court the schemes and games they played the legends and stories that may or may not be trueThere is something else that slowed my progress on this book the fact that I knew the outcome I knew people would die plots wouldn t work out wishes would stay unfulfilled I m trying to be vague to avoid spoilers No matter how much I rooted for the main character to succeed history taught me betterIn a nutshell a fascinating read about a remarkable woman who managed to become the most powerful woman in the country even though all the odds were against herFind of my books on Instagram

Read & Download Í The White ueen ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free review è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ Philippa Gregory Philippa Gregory ↠ 5 Summary Conflito ue opôs a casa de lancaster cujo simbolo é uma rosa vermelha á casa de York representada pela rosa branca. Philippa Gregory s latest historical fiction release is to put it mildly absolutely amazing I think this is one of her better books on par with The Other Boleyn Girl The scope of The White ueen is just as if not epic in terms of literary drama than the rise and fall of Anne Boleyn at the hand of King Henry VIII It focuses on The War of the Roses a bloody war of politics and rival family members pitted against each other as the Yorks and Lancasters fought to become the next ruling family of EnglandI didn t know much about this time in England s history except that the Tudors as part of the House of Lancaster are the winners and the symbol of Henry VII s unification of the two houses is the Tudor Rose Of course since it s a war of cousins as soon as I began reading I had a hard time keeping track of this huge family and found a really handy family tree on Wikipedia made specifically for following the lineage and contributing royals to this war Even with that it s hard to keep track of three generations of names like Richard Edward and George But I think I did fine The White ueen is told through the voice of Elizabeth Woodville a widow of the House of Lancaster with two sons left fatherless from the war with the Yorks She finds herself in the middle of her mother s plotting and is soon exerting her ambitions on the upstart York King Edward IV Gregory imagines theirs being a true romance despite Edward s kingly indulgence of other women she manages to make Edward and Elizabeth s relationship seem much deeper than political ambition They are married in secret an act which eventually comes back to haunt them and puts their positions in danger Rumors and scandals spread by rivals even Edward s own brother threaten to overturn Elizabeth s good luck and the safety of her large family of heirsAmong the accusations is a cry of witchcraft at the hand of her mother Jacuetta who believes herself to be a descendant of Melusina the mythic influence of The Little Mermaid fairy tale Wielding strange beliefs in the power of her little spells and enchantments the inclusion of this in the text adds an elusive and magical femininity to The White ueen and like Philippa Gregory s other books both confirms and denies age old uestions of the wickedness once believed to be punishable only by drowning or burning It s just as easy to believe in the childhood mysteries and superstitions drawn out into her burgeoning womanhood as it is to think Elizabeth s successes and failures are the result of her and her mother s ambitious and well thought out machinationsIf I read correctly there are also references to stories of Cinderella and real life influences for the myth of Robin Hood Belief in fairy tales or not they add an ambiance and counter the surprisingly bloody and graphic battle scenes Gregory writes with the confidence of a writer who s been doing it her whole life I ve read eight of her books in none of them do I remember ever reading the specifics on combat That she does venture bravely into that arena emphasizes the extend of the war fueled by the political ambitions of the York and Lancaster families If she hadn t I don t think I would have understood the gravity the severity or the conseuence of the war as much I m grateful and impressed Gregory has definitely gone up a notch in my book She reenforces her existing mastery of writing scandal intrigue romance and the political maneuvering and flirtations of the court But she also shows off skills I never knew she had the darker side of Gregory s writing is just as inviting as it is graphicI think it s this addition to the book and the almost magical realism of the Rivers family and the storms they wield that make this a really spectacular first part in a trilogy The Cousins War that will include two other titles The Red ueen and The White Princess Of course Philippa Gregory s mastery over English history and phenomenal research makes for spell binding historical fictions when combined with her superb storytelling and attention to the type of detail that adds veracity and momentum to every one of her booksIt helps that she wrote about such a tumultuous and dramatic time in English history ripe for literary exploration With the way she approaches her subjects and writes I think Philippa Gregory could make almost any period in history sound scrumptious That being said the mysterious disappearance of the Princes in the Tower was an event way outside of my bubble of knowledge I admit I cheated and Googled the phrase to learn what about their fate has become so profound After reading the book I m tickled to learn that Gregory has intertwined their fictitious fate with that of Henry VIII in The Other Boleyn Girl who blames Anne Boleyn for his impotence and her inability to produce a healthy heir I had to laugh as I read the curses of Elizabeth and her daughter After all Henry VIII if Elizabeth s magic is to be believed has the right to place the blame on his troubles elsewhere he s just blamed the wrong woman is allIn any event I completely recommend this book to fans of historical fiction and anyone interested in reading a riveting story of love jealousy and vengeance And I absolutely recommend this to Philippa Gregory fans She s reinvented herself in this one I think and proves she can use fairy tales romance and gore in the same book and make it all completely plausible I can t say enough how much I loved this book You should go pre order it right now Right now
