Internationally bestselling author Philippa Gregory brings the tumult and intrigue of The Wars of the Roses to vivid life through the women of the House of Lancaster and the House of York, beginning with the story of Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen.
A woman who won the love of a king and ascended to royalty by virtue of her beauty, Elizabeth fought tenaciously for the success of her family -- her daughter who would one day unite the warring dynasties, and her two sons whose eventual fate has confounded historians for centuries: the Princes in the Tower. An active player in the power struggles that surrounded her, she made hard and courageous choices, always trying to protect those whom she loved. Informed by impeccable research and framed by her inimitable storytelling skills, Philippa Gregory gives an unforgettable voice to an extraordinary woman at the heart of a devastating conflict.

Another great book from Philippa Gregory. Great descriptions about people and places without going overboard, you can almost visualize their faces.
Just don't fall asleep listening to it at bedtime as I often do,(not because the books are boring, far from it, but because I always think "I'll just listen for another 10 minutes" and before I know it, it's 4 o'clock in the morning and I have missed listening to a good 2 hours and have to rewind the following night).
When are you going to put 'The Red Queen' on iTunes (soon I hope).
