あらすじ・解説

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.

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.

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!

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.

An interesting interpretation

An interesting interpretation of the history to make a good story - so much better than the TV serial of the same book, which is frankly utter rubbish. However, it was quite repetitive, facts being repeated over and over, which became tedious but not enough to ruin the enjoyment of it.

enjoyable but a bit drawn out

Narrators tone somewhat annoying and story seemed somewhat padded out still worth a listen though

Enjoyable from start to finish

I found this book fascinating as it was clear that game play was certainly always at present. I really enjoyed an insight to these historical figures.
It was very well read

I will read all of Sarah Feathers aubook from now

I love Sarah feathers voice. it feels like going back in time, Her French, Scottish and Margaret Beaufort's voice is just perfect adding the real touch to the story.
