The Last Tudor

An ideal companion to Leanda de Lisle's The Sisters Who Would Be Queen, Gregory's first-person perspective on late Tudor England's turbulent history will delight existing and future fans.

Three Sisters, Three Queens

This lengthy audiobook is highly recommended for public libraries with a demand for Gregory's novels or other historical fiction.

The Taming of the Queen

Full of vivid details and fraught with the constant tension of a court run by a madman, this novel will appeal most to historical fiction readers and those who enjoyed Wolf Hall. The end of the story is well known, but Gregory beautifully builds the suspense.

The King's Curse

By employing Margaret as her narrator, Gregory offers a fresh perspective on well-known British history. This gripping and detailed chronicle, with plenty of court intrigue and politics to spice up the action, will be sure to please any historical fiction fan. Highly recommended.

The White Princess

Like the other titles in the series (The Red Queen; The White Queen; The Lady of the Rivers; The Kingmaker's Daughter), this rich tapestry brings to vivid life the court of Henry and Elizabeth. Meticulously drawn characters with a seamless blending of historical fact and fiction combine in a page-turning epic of a story. Tudor-fiction fans can never get enough, and they will snap this one up. [See Prepub Alert, 2/11/13.]

The Kingmaker's Daughter

Gregory delivers another vivid and satisfying novel of court intrigue, revenge, and superstition. Gregory's many fans as well as readers who enjoy lush, evocative writing, vividly drawn characters, and fascinating history told from a woman's point of view will love her latest work. [See Prepub Alert, 10/25/10.]

The Lady of the Rivers

A worthy addition to this fascinating series, once again distinguished by excellent characterization, thorough research, and a deft touch with the written word. [With fellow historians David Baldwin and Michael Jones, Gregory is publishing in September a nonfiction account The Women of the Cousins' War: The Duchess, the Queen, and the King's Mother.—Ed.]
