The White Queen (The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels)

$11.99$1.99Audiobook: 3.99 (Whispersync)

The inspiration for the Starz miniseries The White Queen. From Publishers Weekly: "The queen of British historical fiction (The Other Boleyn Girl) kicks off a new series with the story of Elizabeth Woodville Grey, whose shifting alliances helped the War of the Roses take root. The marriage of 22-year-old Yorkist King Edward IV to 27-year-old widow Elizabeth brings a sea change in loyalties: Elizabeth's Lancastrian family becomes Edward's strongest supporters, while Edward's closest adviser, the ambitious earl of Warwick, joins with Edward's brother George to steal the English crown. History buffs from Shakespeare on have speculated about this fateful period, especially the end of Edward and Elizabeth's two sons, and Gregory invents plausible but provocative scenarios to explore those mysteries; she is especially poignant depicting Elizabeth in her later years, when her allegiance shifts toward Richard III (who may have killed her sons)." Add Audible narration for $3.99.

From Independent on Sunday: "After serving up the highly delicious The Other Boleyn Girl Gregory has concocted yet another treat from the Tudor court. I loved The pleasure to be found in this kind of historical fiction is a chair-by-the-fireside-on-a-cold-winter's-night kind of pleasure ... the kind of pleasure only a born storyteller can offer."

Tidelands (The Fairmile Series)

Tidelands (The Fairmile Series)

This is the first installment in a new series from seasoned historical novelist Gregory, in which she focuses on what the lives of everyday people might have been like centuries ago. The characters all live in the Tidelands, a part of England that can't be mapped because land and water are constantly shifting due to the movement of the tides. They live on an island accessible only by ferry; there's one way in, one way out, and one family that controls all these comings and goings. The unstable mood and atmosphere permeate the story, and Louise Brealey's narration draws you right in to this world. In the background, King Charles is imprisoned on the Isle of Wight, but the story centers on a midwife and herbalist whose husband's follies have plunged her into a socially and economically perilous position. I tried this book out of curiosity, and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
