Publisher's Summary

Jacquetta, daughter of the count of Luxembourg and kinswoman to half the royalty of Europe, was married to the great Englishman John, duke of Bedford, uncle to Henry VI. Widowed at the age of 19, she took the extraordinary risk of marrying a gentleman of her household for love and then carved out a life for herself as Queen Margaret of Anjou's close friend and a Lancaster supporter - until the day that her daughter, Elizabeth Woodville, fell in love and married the rival king Edward IV. Of all the little-known but important women of the period, her dramatic story is the most neglected. With her links to Melusina and to the founder of the house of Luxembourg, together with her reputation for making magic, she is the most haunting of heroines.

    "Not unabridged"

    Great story, too good to to miss half by listening to the abridged. Looking forward to the rest in the series

    "This is NOT unabridged"

    Really disappointed that this book is abridged. Some parts don't make sense as previous sections are missing. A real shame, as it's a great book.

    Story
    "Captivating"
    What made the experience of listening to The Lady of the Rivers the most enjoyable?

    It was wonderfully narrated and so very interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Putting it in historical context - If you haven't watched The White Queen series then it helps to put this in context - also related to Philippa Gregory's historical novel series The Cousins' War.


    Have you listened to any of Tracy-Ann Oberman’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No, but would again.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I could have.


    Any additional comments?

    Brilliant - one of the best audio books I've listened to.
