Though the Dowager Queen has purposely kept her daughter in the dark about her plots, Elizabeth knows that her mother had sent her younger brother Richard to safety in Flanders, while an impostor went missing and was presumably murdered in the Tower.
Elizabeth and Henry have a daughter, Margaret and a son, Henry. Elizabeth's mother dies. Rebellion builds as a boy claiming to be the lost Richard appears and is acknowledged by Margaret, Duchess of Burgundy , the sister of Elizabeth's father, Edward IV. His claim is embraced by James IV of Scotland and other monarchs, and lords supposedly loyal to Henry begin to escape to Scotland. With the forces against him growing and his support waning, a volatile Henry grows increasingly mistrustful of Elizabeth and her extended family.
Despite the odds, Henry is ultimately triumphant and takes the pretender Richard prisoner. The Orenda.

Report as inappropriate. Phillipa Gregory makes history come alive. Once you start to read you have a hard time putting the book down.
She turns real historical people and their times into a very enjoyable experience. As always, Phillippa Gregory is immensely readable.
She bases her historical novels in fact and seems to be careful in her research. Of course, given the subject matter, this novel creates more questions that it answers, but the fact that I wanted to do more research on the time period attests to her ability to capture the my full attention and imagination.
This is a great book to take on vacation. Very, very, very repetitive. Unfortunately, not one of my favorites.
I love reading these versions of historical fiction. The writer always brings her characters to life. I always end up feeling just how the main character feels. Mainly grief in this novel. The mix of fiction, theory and fact is what makes this novel to enchanting to read. Enough mystery and "what's next" to keep the reader reading. I can't wait for another book in this series! Love the historical fiction!

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.
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 story was done well: This book explores that in a most interesting manner.
