Le Em meio á guerra a viuvá Elizabeth Woodville desperta a atenção do jovem Rei Eduardo IV e os dois se casam em segredo. Elizabeth Woodville was the ueen of Edward IV the mother of the murdered princes in the tower and the grandmother of Henry VIII She played a larger role in the period of the War of the Roses then she is often credited with and her portrayals in the books have usually been less than sympathetic This novel covers her story over a span 0f 21 years from the time she is wood by the debonair Edward IV in the midst of the bloody War of the Roses until the eve of the Battle of Bosworth in which Richard III was defeated by Henry Tudor and killedShe gives a sympathetic portrayal of Elizabeth Woodville than she does of her subject in The Other Boleyn Girl Anne Boleyn and her books about ueen Elizabeth I love novels about English medieval and Tudor history and was uite excited to find this She portrays her characters in a multidimensional fashion in the novel which I likedHer portrait of Elizabeth is of a strong ambitious and determined woman who although she can be ruthless and conniving greatly cares for her children and can show generosity of spirit Perhaps it is close to the real character of Elizabeth Woodville The saga of the Rivers family is an interesting one as many of the characters she covers in this novel appear in Shakespeare's Richard IIIRichard Duke of Gloucester is portrayed as ruthless and cruel extremely self serving and cunning not the saintly figure of Sharon Penman's The Sunne in Splendour yet he is absolved of blame by Gregory for the deaths of the princesInteresting aspects of this novel include Elizabeth's witchcraft she curses Richard III so that his arm withers and he weakens and alludes to the scene in Richard III where he flounders at the battlefield of Bosworth before his death desperate for a horse She curses whoever had ordered the death of her son Edward V and the facts that would unfold point to the perpetrator being Henry VII who as Elizabeth Woodville incanted would lose his firstborn son in youth and his grandson Prince Arthur brother of Henry VIII and Henry VIII's only son Edward VIHer sorcery is a central part of the novel and much is made of her reputed descent through her mother Jauetta of Burgundy from the feminine spirit of sacred springs and rivers Melusina The book includes a figure of the time I have always much liked Edward's beautiful mistress and mistress of many othersJane Shore who is referred to by Elizabeth as 'the Shore Whore'but eventually Elizabeth after gaining much help from Mistress Shore is unable to not like her As Elizabeth exclaims after her cruel penance by King Richard 'Harlot or Angel God bless hershe puts forward in her novel the story that her youngest son Richard of York the other prince was smuggles to safety and replace by Elizabeth Woodville with a peasant boy who died in the tower together with Prince EdwardAlso shown here is the fascinating and romantic character of Elizabeth Woodville's daughter Elizabeth of York mother of Henry VIII A compelling blend of romance and history Gregory has done her research well and gives a than satisfactory coverage of The Wars of the Roses and the waxing and waning fortunes of the Yorks and Lancasters as well as Elizabeth's family the Rivers I found it a complete page turner

Summary Ñ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ´ Philippa Gregory

The White ueenIrmãos e primos lutam entre si para conuistar o trono da Inglaterra neste fascinante relato da guerra das duas rosas o confli. This was my first Philippa Gregory novel and it was such an excellent introduction to the author and genre It actually inspired me to read historical fiction by a variety of writers I like Gregory’s style because the history and intensity is not sacrificed by the romance in the plot Indeed the romance is a mere element of the story and not the story itself So now many years later I’m glad I picked this book up I like Gregory's Elizabeth; she has such sharp claws A woman who knows what she wants Philippa is a master at getting into the mind of these historical figures; she takes the events and narrates them from the perspective of how the said character may have perceived them Elizabeth Woodville is many things; she is a courageous woman and a loyal wife; she is ambitious and deadly; she is strong and ruthless To some she is even considered a witch but firstly and undeniably she is a concerned mother This worriment over the fate of her children is exactly what makes her ueen of England; her concern drives her to seek protection under the banner of York To save my son I would plot with the devil himself Her first husband has died fighting for the red rose he has died under the banner of Lancaster So Elizabeth is widowed and in need of protection Her family are seen as traitors by the new Yorkist regime; they are enemies of the crown So what better way than to appear as if by random out of the woods like a fairy tale princess to gain the King’s heart Elizabeth seduced the King and he was than happy to oblige her but she was clever enough to gain some surety before giving herself fully to him; thus she joins the house of York in a very well written opening to this book Elizabeth’s story The marriage of Elizabeth and Edward IV began with passion and heat; it ended with political upheaval I love the way Elizabeth has been written; it is such a way that suggests that her actions could be driven by a mother’s natural instinct to protect her children and then at the same time suggests that she is merely plotting for her own power lust I personally think it was a little bit of both She feared Richard but she also wanted to remain ueen This was uite a pivotal moment for history because if the two had reconciled then perhaps together they could have saved the white rose of York English history and society would be remarkably different But that would never have happened Both factions of the house of York wanted the power and wanted to be rulers of England Elizabeth ensured her own security by keeping one of her boys out of Richard’s supposedly dirty hands This young York boy appears later in the The White Princess as Perkin Warbeck Indeed Gregory leaves herself room for later scandal lies and pure intrigue I love this series and I love the way she has written her characters It’s an interpretation that historically could be true and accurate But at the same time she never points any fingers She shows us how things have happened but at the same time doesn’t directly say who was responsible; she suggests just enough that every character has eual blame I’m of course referring to the murders of the princes in the tower In this I feel that Gregory is completely impartial The Cousin's War Series 1 The White ueen A strong four stars2 Th
