Two great books i couldnt put down. Phillipa Gregory is a great historical fiction writer. Since i first read her Tudor series ive been hooked and this is another great set of books written wonderfully. If you like historical fiction or have always wondered about the War of the Roses this is a great way to get some history in an entertaining way. Also this series is being turned into a tv series on starz this august. Its called The White Queen and starts the 10th.
