Keidy | 313 comments Wow! This is cool. I love books like these. With all of the historical dramas that have been circulating itself through TV, I find myself usually reading wikipedia or watching documentaries to inform myself more of that time period. In fact, with Outlander I did just that, reading whatever I could from Wikipedia to learn more of the time period. Informative yes, but dry. I'm really pretty excited with this new book. I'm sure it'll give a more colorful history of the time.

With TV shows like "Reign", DaVinci's Demons and The White Queen, the list keeps growing and I find myself wishing I was more historically savvy. Sadly I don't have the mind to keep the dates and other info in my head for longer than a month or so but it's fun to get the backstory none-of-the-less.

All in all, I'm totally entering this giveaway. Thanks for the heads up!

I hadn't heard of "The White Queen" at all--thank you for bringing this to my attention.
