Excellent story; well told. The characters come alive and, even though you tend not to like the protagonist, you understand where she's coming from. Solid historical fiction with just enough of a speculative element to give it a fantasy flavor.

We live bombarded by headlines of alarm and gloom and think that only our day and age has such strife, but The White Queen reminds us that such is the normal human condition. We strive and bicker and kill as much of it pride--but certainly also for family and fortune.
