“I love anything Philippa Gregory writes and I greatly enjoyed this too. My one thought was that as its story so intertwined with the White Queen, I wished that I had read them closer together, to truly hear both aspects of the story at once. It was quite interesting to remember flashes of the other book, and see how they together fit. I have the fantasy, that someday, I would take a year, and re-read all of her books in order, as a sort of Master Class in England's History. Similar to West Wing being a master class in government, and In Treatment being a Master Class in Psychotherapy, sometimes immersion is the best way to understand a time, or a series of interwoven concepts. Next up, is the Man who Loved Books too Much, and of course a re-read of Harry Potter 7, so I can see the movie when we return in January. A Happy New year to All-”Amy Friedman wrote this review 7 hours ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“It was good. The writing is excellent and the story, exciting. But the main character is such a bitch that I found it annoying. ”Eleanor wrote this review 2 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Here's another chapter in the Tudor Saga. This time we've experienced the story of The Red Queen, mother of Henry VII, Margaret Beaufort, Countess of Richmond.
In early childhood, Margaret was convinced that she was "Chosen by God" to do great things,like Joan of Arc.
When Margaret gave birth to her only child, Henry Tudor. She was once again convinced that its her God-granted "Destiny" to get her son on the throne.
Even though, she was a very difficult character. It was very interesting seeing court life and the power struggles during this time period through her eyes. I give it 3.5 stars ★★★”

“Sequel to The White Queen...The Red Queen is the tale of the same historical events but from the POV of Margaret Beaufort, Henry Tudor's mother. Much political plotting and treachery! A good read...fast paced and action packed!
