This is a historical novel written primarily for a female audience by the woman who brought us The Other Boleyn Girl. It is not non-fiction. Of course it tends towards the romantic. It isn't fair to expect too much more from it. Elizabeth Woodville as a whole wasn't Elizabeth I or Anne Boleyn...or even Mary, Queen of Scots. Those women, even impulsive Mary, were women who DID things in history. Elizabeth Woodville had a great deal done TO her. You can't compare her story to theirs.
As such I thought this was a fairly good introduction to the story of the War of the Roses. Not great, but interesting. I was always interested in the princes in the tower. I hope Gregory takes the story through to the Tudor era. It would be interesting for a few books to focus on the time prior to Henry VIII.
