THE COMPELLING NOVEL FROM SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER PHILIPPA GREGORY

The second book in Philippa's stunning new series, The Cousins' War, brings to life the story of Margaret Beaufort, a shadowy and mysterious character in the first book of the series - The White Queen - but who now takes centre stage in the bitter struggle of The War of the Roses.

The Red Queen tells the story of the child-bride of Edmund Tudor, who, although widowed in her early teens, uses her determination of character and wily plotting to infiltrate the house of York under the guise of loyal friend and servant, undermine the support for Richard III and ultimately ensure that her only son, Henry Tudor, triumphs as King of England. Through collaboration with the dowager Queen Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret agrees a betrothal between Henry and Elizabeth's daughter, thereby uniting the families and resolving the Cousins War once and for all by founding of the Tudor dynasty.

Praise for Philippa Gregory:

'Meticulously researched and deeply entertaining, this story of betrayal and divided loyalties is Gregory on top form' Good Housekeeping

'Gregory has popularised Tudor history perhaps more than any other living fiction writer...all of her books feature strong, complex women, doing their best to improve their lives in worlds dominated by men' Sunday Times

'Engrossing' Sunday Express

'Popular historical fiction at its finest, immaculately researched and superbly told' The Times

“One-sided view”

I think you probably are going to have to read the White Queen and other Tudor history books to really appreciate this book. This story is all from one view point and I have to say she gets a bit tedious at times in... More

“Necessary”

Not as good as the White Queen or the others in the series but definitely worth a read in order to understand the TV series or the following novels.

“The Portcullis - Crowned!”

I once re-fought ‘the cousins’ war’ in the shadow of York Minster – both verbally and politely, I hasten to add – with a historian. Some cheek, since she turned out to be a lecturer and my knowledge comes merely from... More
