I loved this book! For me Philippa Gregory is the ideal combination – a good novelist and an excellent researcher. She used her skill as a novelist to interpret her research in a believable and interesting way making the story of Elizabeth Woodville the White Queen come alive. The possibilities of witchcraft, the intrigues, power struggles and violent warfare were the backdrop to the story of a woman and her struggles to preserve her family against the perils of the age. I am really looking forward to more novels in this series.
