New Release, The White Queen by Philippa Gregory

To be Released world wide August 18th 2009,

I already have this one saved on my libary account I am number one so far in a line of seven holds ha but I will get it first!

"The first in a stunning new series, The Cousins War, is set amid the tumult and intrigue of The War of the Roses. Internationally bestselling author Philippa Gregory brings this family drama to colourful life through its women, beginning with the story of Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen.

The White Queen tells the story of a common woman who ascends to royalty by virtue of her beauty, a woman who rises to the demands of her position and fights tenaciously for the success of her family, a woman whose two sons become the central figures in a mystery that has confounded historians for centuries: the Princes in the Tower whose fate remains unknown to this day. From her uniquely qualified perspective, Philippa Gregory explores the most famous unsolved mystery, informed by impeccable research and framed by her inimitable storytelling skills."


  1. I'm cautiously excited about this one! The Other Boleyn Girl will always have a special place in my heart and I loved The Constant Princess and The Boleyn Inheritance, but really disliked The Other Queen. I look forward to what she does with Elizabeth Woodville though!

  2. Hi Lizzy, I'm really excited about this release as well. Although a little nervous as I loved The Other Boleyn Girl so much but was also a little disappointed with The Other Queen. Still I love Philippa Gregory so can't wait to get my hands on this book!

  3. "uniquely qualified"

    makes me think.

    But I'll be reading it, how could I dare not to?
    I love Elizabeth Woodville and I think she has not been treated nicely.

    Although I was so very disappointed with The Other Queen, I spent $20 on that and quickly gave it to me local used book store, I was so disappointed.

    I hate this cover though!! I much prefer the style of the paperbacks.
    Perhaps this would have been better if it was headless??

  4. "me local.." was supposed to be my local.. my Irish roots go back to the 1700's but that's where it ended.

  5. I have a copy !
    The Aussie cover is different with a red rose on one side and a white rose on the other.
    I hope to start it straight away.

  6. Ah not fair! Soon, but I am still envious. Happy reading!
