Reviews
"Loyalties are torn, paranoia festers and you can almost hear the bray of royal trumpets as the period springs to life. It's a bloody irresistible read."-- "People Magazine"
"Bring on the blood, sex and tears! . . . You name it, it's all here."-- "USA Today"
"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."-- "Library Journal (starred review)"
"The White Princess features one of the more intriguing theories about the possible fate of the princes."-- "The Washington Post"
"This is the most fascinating and complex of the series--not only in history, but in the psychological makeup of the characters, the politics of the era and the blending of actual and reimagined history. Gregory makes everything come to life. . . . This is why Gregory is a queen of the genre."-- "Romantic Times"
"As usual, Gregory delivers a spellbinding . . . exposé."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Elizabeth must navigate the treacherous waters of marriage, maternity, and mutiny in an age better at betrayal than childbirth. . . . At this novel's core lies a political marriage seen in all its complexity."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"Replete with intrigue and heartrending drama."-- "Booklist"
"Gregory returns with another sister act. The result: her best novel in years."-- "USA Today"

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."-- "Library Journal"
"Gregory is one of historical fiction's superstars, and The Kingmaker's Daughter shows why . . . providing intelligent escape, a trip through time to a dangerous past."-- "Historical Novels Review (Editor's Choice Review)"
"Wielding magic again in her latest War of the Roses novel ... Gregory demonstrates the passion and skill that has made her the queen of English historical fiction....Gregory portrays spirited women at odds with powerful men, endowing distant historical events with drama, and figures long dead or invented with real-life flaws and grand emotions. She makes history ... come alive for readers."-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
"Gregory ... always delivers the goods."-- "New York Post"
"Gorgeous fun."-- "New York Daily News"
