Caught between loyalties, the mother of the Tudors must choose between the red rose and the white. Philippa Gregory, #1 New York Times bestselling author and “the queen of royal fiction” (USA Today), presents the latest Cousins’ War novel, the remarkable story of Elizabeth of York, daughter of the White Queen. When Henry Tudor picks up the crown of England from the mud of Bosworth field, he knows he must marry the princess of the enemy house—Elizabeth of York—to unify a country divided by war for nearly two decades. But his bride is still in love with his slain enemy, Richard III—and her mother and half of England dream of a missing heir, sent into the unknown by the White Queen. While the new monarchy can win power, it cannot win hearts in an England that plots for the triumphant return of the House of York. Henry’s greatest fear is that somewhere a prince is waiting to invade and reclaim the throne. When a young man who would be king leads his army and invades England, Elizabeth has to choose between the new husband she is coming to love and the boy who claims to be her beloved lost brother: the rose of York come home at last.

novelist do with Edward and Richard, heirs to the British throne who werepurportedly locked in the Tower by their uncle and then disappeared so that he couldbecome Richard III? Conspiracy theories have flourished for centuries, but no strongevidence has emerged to solve the mystery. A novelist has any number of possibilities to pursue.In

The White Princess
,Philippa Gregory makes her choice and places their fate in the hands of their feistymother, Elizabeth Woodville, wife of Edward IV and a key player in the War of theRoses, the dynastic feud among the Plantagenets between the Houses of York andLancaster. She substitutes a pauper for young Richard, ensuring that the Duke of York gets away. The follow-up to such a dramatic decision inevitably needs tocontinue this story line. Richard has disappeared. Does he come back?At first,
The White Princess
seems to tell another story – that of Elizabeth of York,the White Queen’s daughter, and one-time mistress of Richard III, who on his deathbecomes the wife of his slayer, the Tudor Henry VII. (Confused yet? I am stillreeling at the thought that she was mistress to her uncle!) Elizabeth is theembodiment of the painful transition between York and Tudor monarchies, herstrategic marriage to Henry VII the outward expression of York loyalty as demandedby the Tudors.Gregory is known for her retakes on British royal history, viewing the scheming, thepower struggles, the battles exclusively from women’s points of view, exploringhow the Queen or Princess finds her own source of power and influence in theinterstices left open by the men. Elizabeth of York is no different, using her beauty,her popularity with the people, her instinctive wiliness and political acumen to bearon Henry VII, with varying results. She may pragmatically have to accept that theTudors are in the ascendance, but she can see that her distant and paranoid husbandis not a natural as a king; she must teach him how to win the love and respect of hissubjects, who still view the family of York with affection and nostalgia.Eventually Elizabeth and Henry achieve a kind of marital truce, and grow to loveeach other, if only for a time. There are plenty of beddings, of ladies-in-waiting withknowing looks, of confinements and wet nurses and babies – including, of course,the future Henry VIII, characterized by Gregory even in his boyhood as a sensualist.
