Book Review: The White Queen (Cousin’s War #1)

The White Queen (Cousin’s War #1) by Philippa Gregory:

The White Queen is the first book in a series by noted English historian and historical fiction writer, Philippa Gregory.  It takes place amidst the turbulence and violence of the English War of the Roses. This is the story of beautiful commoner Elizabeth Woodville who would marry Yorkist King Edward IV and become queen of England.

Once I read the opening scene of Elizabeth meeting Edward for the first time by a tree on the side of the road, I was hooked. I loved the chemistry between the two lovers. Their relationship starts quickly and moves at a fast pace resulting in a secret wedding between the two.  I admired Elizabeth’s courage as she fought to protect her family interests and be a good wife to Edward. She is not accepted by the king’s mother and many at court. She would eventually lose her two small sons in the Tower of London.  It was never determined what happened to them and remains one of England’s greatest mysteries. In addition, I love the fact that the book is told from a woman’s point of view. We all know the male players in English history, but we don’t know a lot about their female counterparts.  I guarantee you won’t be disappointed in The White Queen. The cable network, Starz, premiered the series on August 11, 2013.
