Won as a goodreads giveaway!

I've never read Philippa Gregory before, and now I can see the appeal.

This particular book starts very slowly - and it struggles more because Margaret's self-reighteousness just makes you want to slap her.

However, the court intrigue and changes in loyalties for the HOuse of York or Lancaster in the last half of the book were fascinating and absorbing. I knew about the princes in the tower and Richard's reign a bit before this, but all of the political machinations were new to me.

I'd read more by her . . .
