Trapped in the Wars of the Roses, one woman finds herself sister to the queen...and traitor to the crown
Katherine Woodville's sister never gave her a choice. A happy girl of modest means, Kate hardly expected to become a maker of kings. But when her sister impulsively marries King Edward IV in secret, Katherine's life is no longer hers to control...
|I am a little embarrassed to admit how long ago I started reading this book.
I was almost done with it, and never finished it, but started rereading it again from the beginning when I finally sat down to actually finish it.
It’s a great story, told from the point of view of “the White Queen’s” younger sister and her husband. It was actually really great to hear the story from the point of view of a major character, but not one much written about.
I did enjoy the book, and I liked how the book covered basically Kate’s whole life, from early childhood to death, but I didn’t like the back and forth between character’s points of views – I find that disrupting.
There were also a LOT of characters to keep track of.
