I found this book very interesting.

Having read The White Queen I wanted to read more about Elizabeth Woodville and her Mother; Jacquetta of Luxembourg and I found the book shows them in an interesting light.

The book also talks about Lady Margaret Beaufort who was the Mother of Henry VII. Another powerful woman whose life was solely carried out with the aim of seeing her son on the throne of England, a feat she achieved.

Women were not well documented in history so it is often hard to find the definitive answers to the questions of their lives but this book tells their history the best way that the documents will allow.

Three powerful women who helped to shape the history of our country and impacted on the way the country was run in ways you wouldn’t think possible.

Their stories deserve to be heard.
