The Red Queen

The Red Queen

This is the second book in Gregory's series telling of the War of the Roses.  I enjoy Gregory's historical fiction and this book was no different.  Margaret believes that she is like Joan of Arc and has been chosen by God to be the mother of the true King of England--her son, Henry Tudor.  Margaret plots and plans to make this happen and this vision becomes the driving force in her life.  This book shows how women were powerless and powerful all at once, how people would turn on family and friends at the drop of the hat, and how keeping the family name in power was the end all be all.  This was a good read.  I read it on my Kindle.
