The White Princess Philippa Gregory

 Summay:The latest Cousins’ War novel, the remarkable story of Elizabeth of York, daughter of the White Queen.

When Henry Tudor picks up the crown of England from the mud of Bosworth field, he knows he must marry the princess of the enemy house—Elizabeth of York—to unify a country divided by war for nearly two decades.

But his bride is still in love with his slain enemy, Richard III—and her mother and half of England dream of a missing heir, sent into the unknown by the White Queen. While the new monarchy can win power, it cannot win hearts in an England that plots for the triumphant return of the House of York.

Henry’s greatest fear is that somewhere a prince is waiting to invade and reclaim the throne. When a young man who would be king leads his army and invades England, Elizabeth has to choose between the new husband she is coming to love and the boy who claims to be her beloved lost brother: the rose of York come home at last.
 My Thoughts:
This is hands down the best book in the series to me I even liked this one better than the Red Queen.
I do have to say that reading this while watching the White Queen series really helped with keeping up with Who is who. Way to go Miss Gregory  you have done it again now the wait starts for the final book in the series  The Last Rose which is  about Margaret Pole.  Another exciting note Starz is currently in talks With Philppa Gregory about the rights to produce The White Princess.
