Kingmaker's Daughter

The narrator normally helps to set the story for me at any rate. I love Philippa Gregory books - but I have to say this one has left me cold, but I think it is due to the narrator. It's strange how you think a voice should be and how easy it is for the voice to alter your decision on a book. I'll be honest I've left this book unfinished due to the narrator's voice.

Good Book, bad narration!

I love Phillipa Gregory and loved this book, parts were so well written i was left speechless (pregnant sea voyage!) Cant fault the writing or story, would buy again!



However, unfortunately the narration was difficult to listen to for long and i was very aware i was listening to someone's voice, which isnt my experience with other audiobooks.

Kingmakers daughters

I love this period of history, every bit as exciting as the Tudors which have dominated our bookshelves for a few years now. Understanding this turbulent time makes you realise how lucky Henry VIII was to ever get to the throne at all.

The balance of power is so fickle ,such a fine line is trodden between sitting on or off the throne. Warwick,s two daughters are used and abused by their betters and show how dangerous the times were in which they lived. Phillipa Gregory writes with her usual descriptive prose and brings to life the danger of being a woman in a dominant male world

Very engrossing , very Philippa Gregory

Very good, about an era prior to the Tudors. It was along the typical Philippa Gregory line. Which means I have to leave a good period of time between each of her books. But so very discriptive, without long passages which lose your attention. I could taste and smell the time of history written about while I was listening.

You have to know your history

I enjoyed this because I had read the others in the series and understood the historical period. For those coming to it fresh, you need to read around to fully appreciate it.
