Book Club 1 – August

The White Princess   by   Philippa  Gregory.

Employing her in-depth research,  Gregory has skilfully woven her novel around the lives of Elizabeth of York and her husband Henry VII from the period immediately following  the Wars of the Roses.   The narrative is filled with intrigues and betrayals involving and surrounding the many vividly portrayed characters. We all enjoyed this book but felt that it could have been reduced in length as it tended to be rather repetitive.
