Another great book for Gregory. The ONLY issue I have with the Cousins' War books is that I forget who's who, even though I've read the rest of the series (Who's Lancaster, who's York, who's Tudor, who's turncoating)...and a lot of the names are the same. But this book is wonderful as a stand-alone novel. It tells the story of Anne Neville, Richard III's wife, and her struggles as her family was in favor, then out of favor, then constantly haunted by the Rivers family and Queen Elizabeth Woodville, who was thought to be a witch. (This story is in the White Queen). I don't know if I agree with Gregory's depiction of Richard--I'm sort of partial to Shakespeare's version--but that doesn't dent my enjoyment of this well-crafted novel.
