Publisher's Summary

The haunting story of the mother of the Tudors, Elizabeth of York, wife to Henry VII.

Beautiful eldest daughter of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville - the White Queen - the young princess Elizabeth faces a conflict of loyalties between the red rose and the white. Forced into marriage with Henry VII, she must reconcile her slowly growing love for him with her loyalty to the House of York, and choose between her mother's rebellion and her husband's tyranny. Then she has to meet the Pretender, whose claim denies the House of Tudor itself.

Read by Sarah Feathers.

    "Drivel"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story could have been told in 15 mins....Having read Lady of the rivers and both the white queen and the red queen, this was such a disappointment.


    Has The White Princess put you off other books in this genre?

    It has put me off further Phillipa Gregory books


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sarah Feathers’s performances?

    Yes


    What character would you cut from The White Princess?

    It would have been better had any of the principals had any character!

    Story
    "A Trip back in time"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Hot on the heels of the television production of 'The White Queen', Philippa Gregory's 'The White Princess' is the fifth book in the Cousins' War series and this latest instalment tells the story of Elizabeth of York, the daughter of Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen, and King Edward IV. Elizabeth, young and beautiful and still in love with Richard III (her uncle and, as claimed in this book, her lover) is forced into marriage with Henry VII, the man responsible for the death of Richard, who has taken his crown and who, in marrying Elizabeth, hopes to reinforce his hold on the throne. Elizabeth, as Henry's wife, now finds herself moving between two of the most ambitious and powerful women of their time: her mother, Elizabeth Woodville, with her uncanny powers, and Lady Margaret Beaufort, the mother of Henry VII. And Elizabeth is not just caught between these two women for, in her story, Philippa Gregory shows Elizabeth as a woman torn between loyalty to her husband and the children she bears him, and the hopes that her two brothers (the Princes in the Tower) might have survived and could return to take Henry's crown. There is a huge amount more covered in this novel (which took me some hours to read on my Kindle) including the arrival of the future King Henry VIII, but I shall leave that for prospective readers to discover.

    "Don't bother!"

    This is the fifth in The Cousins' War series I have either read or listened to. I have enjoyed the previous four but this has just been terribly boring with constant repetition the whole way through the book!... Could easily have been half the length! .. It has put me off reading the next book - The King's Curse.

    "Too long"

    I enjoyed the musical bits between chapters but the book is too long. Unlike this review.

    Story
    "Doesn't ring true as historical fiction."
    Would you try another book written by Philippa Gregory or narrated by Sarah Feathers?

    I'm a huge fan of Tudor history, but I could not get into this at all. From the opening chapter I was put off the leading character by her constant lamenting over the loss of her incestuous and adulterous affair with her Uncle, Richard III, and when very early on in the book I was presented with a rape scene of her by Henry Tudor, I turned my iPod off in disgust. I will stick with Alison Weir's fiction, it is both more historically convincing and more sensitively written.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Philippa Gregory again?

    Definitely not.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    None.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The White Princess?

    All scenes casting women as either witches, religious maniacs or precocious teenagers. There must have been more to these historical women than the above stereotypes.

    Typical Phillipa Gregory territory and an excellent 'page turner'. Would recommend for fans if historical fiction

    "Loved it!"

    The story was excellent, it really kept me hooked. Super narration too. I've come across some poor ones recently, but this lady was brilliant at changing her voice for all of the characters and read it really well.
