An Engrossing Read

This is a long book, but maybe it needs to be to do justice to the child and the woman that Elizabeth of York was. So often women in history have been overlooked and given no voice but in this story we hear her thoughts and emotions, her triumphs and her sorrows. It is sometimes easy to forget that Elizabeth had far more right to rule than her husband Henry Tudor whose claim to the throne was weak, a fact that he seemed well aware of and sought for her to be distanced from any real power. And yet, as author Alison Weir says, she was very important. She was the daughter, sister, niece, wife, mother and grandmother of monarchs, and the ancestress of every English monarch since 1509, every Scottish monarch since 1513, and every British monarch since 1603. Highly recommended.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
