Giveaway: The Lady Of The Rivers by Philippa Gregory ~ 2 copies


The Cousin's War #3

New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory masterfully weaves passion, adventure, and witchcraft into the story of Jacquetta, Duchess of Bedford, who would survive two reigns and two wars to become the first lady at the rival courts of both Lancaster and York.

When Jacquetta is married to the Duke of Bedford, English regent of France, he introduces her to a mysterious world of learning and alchemy. Her only friend in the great household is the duke’s squire Richard Woodville, who is at her side when the duke’s death leaves her a wealthy young widow. The two become lovers and marry in secret, returning to England to serve at the court of the young King Henry VI, where Jacquetta becomes a close and loyal friend to his new queen.

The Woodvilles soon achieve a place at the very heart of the Lancaster court, though Jacquetta can sense the growing threat from the people of England and the danger of their royal York rivals. As Jacquetta fights for her king and her queen, she can see an extraordinary and unexpected future for her daughter Elizabeth: a change of fortune, the throne of England, and the white rose of York  . . .

  2. The Other Boleyn Girl was my first Gregory novel, and I read several more soon after that. More recently I've read negative comments re. her research and lack thereof. So I have not read any of her more recent novels. Perhaps it's time to try another.
    Extra entries: I commented on your Red Queen and White Queen reviews.
