Publisher's Summary

Internationally bestselling author Philippa Gregory brings the tumult and intrigue of The Wars of the Roses to vivid life through the women of the House of Lancaster and the House of York, beginning with the story of Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen.
A woman who won the love of a king and ascended to royalty by virtue of her beauty, Elizabeth fought tenaciously for the success of her family -- her daughter who would one day unite the warring dynasties, and her two sons whose eventual fate has confounded historians for centuries: the Princes in the Tower. An active player in the power struggles that surrounded her, she made hard and courageous choices, always trying to protect those whom she loved. Informed by impeccable research and framed by her inimitable storytelling skills, Philippa Gregory gives an unforgettable voice to an extraordinary woman at the heart of a devastating conflict.

Even though this is an abridged version, this audio is really good to listen to. I have several of Philippa's novels in hardcopy and have found that out of all of them, I haven't managed to actually read this one yet. Having listened to it though, I am eager to pick up the book and read it and pick up on the parts that have been missed out.
I love the way the different voices are portrayed with the different readers. It gives a sense of almost acting it out yet it is totally being read.
Once again a fantastic historial novel. Philippa has done a magnificent job in the writing of this book and I recommend you give this audio version a listen. You won't be disappointed.
