Waiting on Wednesday: The Lady of the Rivers

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
 
The Lady of the Rivers by Philippa Gregory
Pub. Date: September 15, 2011


Goodreads says, "Jacquetta, daughter of the Count of Luxembourg and kinswoman to half the royalty of Europe, was married to the great Englishman John, Duke of Bedford, uncle to Henry VI. Widowed at the age of nineteen she took the extraordinary risk of marrying a gentleman of her house-hold for love, and then carved out a life for herself as Queen Margaret of Anjou's close friend and a Lancaster supporter - until the day that her daughter Elizabeth Woodville fell in love and married the rival king Edward IV. Of all the little-known but important women of the period, her dramatic story is the most neglected. With her links to Melusina, and to the founder of the house of Luxembourg, together with her reputation for making magic, she is the most haunting of heroines."

*Hi, my name is Christina and I'm a Philippa Gregory-aholic. Seriously. I love her books and I am especially excited for this third installment in the Cousins' War series.  I'm pretty pumped that it's from Jacquetta's point of view as she is an extremely captivating character. If you are a fan of historical fiction, you must check out this series!
