The Lady of the Rivers (The Cousins' War, #3) - Philippa Gregory

Again, it's been a while since I read this one, so I won't have much to say about it. I'm working on catching up, I promise!

 

I almost backed out of reading this one even after I had picked it up from the library. The description makes it sound like there's a lot of witchcraft in the book and that just doesn't interest me. However, it's really not that much. The main character has some uncanny abilities, but she's determined to hide her skills to avoid getting dead. There was never so much that I considered putting the book down. I'm glad that I decided to give it a chance, because I enjoyed it. I liked reading about the romance between Jacquetta and Richard, the family they built together (seriously, they bred like rabbits), and her attempt to balance her responsibilities to her monarchs and her responsibilities to her children.

 

Speaking of her army of children, she once says "My favorite of them all is Elizabeth's brother: Anthony." and that struck me as odd. Why refer to your child (especially your favorite child) as the sibling as another of your children instead of just as your child? It seemed like Gregory was just trying to be more creative than saying "my son", but it was just weird.

 

Yeah, that's about all I've got. I enjoyed The Lady of the Rivers and I'm looking forward to continuing along this timeline of books!

The White Queen - Philippa Gregory

I am not really feeling this book right now. I don't know if it's the book itself, or if this little reading slump I've hit is the cause.

Royalty with a touch of magic
The White Queen - Philippa Gregory

Gregory has done it again, she's written another series I'm going to fall in love with. The York family is not a royal family I know a lot about so it was easy for me to separate myself from fact and fall into this slightly mythical world. King Edward can't help but fall in love with a young widow despite the rumors of the family's Witchcraft.  This is a story about a mother that loves deep and will do whatever it takes to protect her family from anyone who will threaten the life she is building for them.

 

 

 

This was a very detailed story, that pulled me right into there world. I found myself loving the queen and cheering for her family all through there trials of life. It's been awhile since I've read a story I can't seem to put down. I highly suggest the book and mini series.
