The Kingmaker’s Daughter by Philippa Gregory is one of my new favourite books.
Philippa Gregory has a way of making readers identify easily with her main characters . However, a lot of the women she writes about are very much at the centre of court life, and the rebellions and difficulties that the royal family face seem to spring up out of nowhere.
Anne Neville (the central character in The Kingmaker’s Daughter) had a taste of court life but was also removed enough to offer a unique perspective.
I loved The Cousins’ War series as a whole and I’ll be writing a review on the series soon.
