Waiting on Wednesday: Three Sisters, Three Queens

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Three Sisters, Three Queens by Philippa Gregory
Pub. Date: August 9, 2016



Goodreads says, "As sisters they share an everlasting bond; As queens they can break each other’s hearts.  There is only one bond that I trust: between a woman and her sisters. We never take our eyes off each other. In love and in rivalry, we always think of each other. When Katherine of Aragon is brought to the Tudor court as a young bride, the oldest princess, Margaret, takes her measure. With one look, each knows the other for a rival, an ally, a pawn, destined—with Margaret’s younger sister Mary—to a sisterhood unique in all the world. The three sisters will become the queens of England, Scotland, and France.  United by family loyalties and affections, the three queens find themselves set against each other. Katherine commands an army against Margaret and kills her husband James IV of Scotland. But Margaret’s boy becomes heir to the Tudor throne when Katherine loses her son. Mary steals the widowed Margaret’s proposed husband, but when Mary is widowed it is her secret marriage for love that is the envy of the others. As they experience betrayals, dangers, loss, and passion, the three sisters find that the only constant in their perilous lives is their special bond, more powerful than any man, even a king."
Philippa Gregory is my go-to historical fiction author and I love the sound of her latest novel, especially because I don't know much about Margaret Tudor.  What do you guys think?

  1. I think this sounds entertaining and I love Tudor fiction. My only issue is that her books are usually not very historically accurate. I'd like them more if I could get over that!

    1. Yes, I have heard both arguments...that they are well-researched and others have said they aren't accurate. I just read them for the drama! :) Haha. Thanks for visiting, Christina!
