Sisters of Henry VIII by Maria Perry, Perry
In this spellbinding portrait of two forgotten women who helped shape a dynasty and a nation, Perry returns to a distant time and place with the same panache that made Alison Weir's "The Wives of Henry VIII" a phenomenon.

I have all my life loved to read English history up until the death of Elizabeth, so of course, I wanted this new one. I had never read Maria Perry's books before, but I knew I had found a jewel when at the end of the first chapter 'when Prince Henry realized that as a queen his sister (Margaret) would now take precedence over him, he wept with rage.' Concentrating on these two sisters who became queens in their own right, made the history of the period much more full and rich to me. I understood more of the politics,and it was fun. I go all the way back to Thomas B. Costain's series in l949. This book is at the top of my list to learn more and enjoy at the same time.
