The White Queen (The Cousins' War #1) by Philippa Gregory (Book review)

*I bought this book and I did not have to review it *

The White Queen tells the story of a woman of extraordinary beauty and ambition who, catching the eye of the newly crowned boy king, marries him in secret and ascends to royalty. While Elizabeth rises to the demands of her exalted position and fights for the success of her family, her two sons become central figures in a mystery that has confounded historians for centuries: the missing princes in the Tower of London whose fate is still unknown. From her uniquely qualified perspective, Philippa Gregory explores this most famous unsolved mystery of English history, informed by impeccable research and framed by her inimitable storytelling skills.


I wasn't even going to read this book but I kept hearing good things about it and I had won The White Princess as part of a GoodReads giveaway so I figured I might as well read this one before reading the one that I won.

This is not the kind of book I would usually read. Most books like this (historical ficion) bore me but I absolutely love this book and I couldn't put it down. Actually I ended up going to sleep later than I had planned because I just couldn't stop read this.

A friend of mine shared this ebook with me but I loved this book so much that I bought this book and the ones I am missing in this series in paperback.

Even if you aren't really into Historical fiction you might like this one. I know I am glad I read it and I can't wait for all the books to arrive.

This book is available in bookstores near you.

I give this 5 out of 5.
