I've read a number of Philippa Gregory's books and enjoy them for the most part. Sometimes there is too much fiction for my tastes. This particular book certainly brings Margaret Beaufort to life - although she was never a queen, per se. As the mother of Henry VII, she certainly tried to portray herself as one. Even with this positive portrayal of her, I found it hard to like her. However, reading "history" from the different perspectives, York and Lancaster, helps round out the drama of the period.
