This was fantastic. Loved it tremendously. Bianca Amento is a magically talented narrator. Not only did she do a spectacular job in the uniqueness of the wide variety of accents for each person, but she was also able to keep track of them and seamlessly swich from one character to another. Probably the single most talented narrator I've heard to date.
The title, however, is a bit misleading and could have been better chosen. Philippa Gregory wrote an awesome story, but it was primarily about Margaret Tudor and interactions she had with her sister Mary and sister in law Katherine of Aragon. The title led me to believe that this was more an equal story, maybe alternating, about each of the three queens. There was an equal amount of interaction that she (Margaret) had with her sisters as she did with anyone else in her story, but I do suppose the interactions with the sisters was more pronounced and intimate than as with others. Possibly. Still, it was totally worth the read. Obviously this is historical fiction, but the history part was very accurate. I love being able to put a (fictional) personal image to a historical figure.
I would also suggest reading
"The Other Boleyn Girl" also by Philippa Gregory
And follow it up with
"The Life of Elizabeth 1" by Alison Weir
They compliment each other perfectly! And I mean PERFECTLY! Those two could have collaborated on these two books.

This audio book was just as I expected! Three Sisters, Three Queens kept me entertained with all the rich and deceitful people in Tudor times. I love all the twists and unexp ected turns her characters have to endure. Phillipa Gregory's novel was worth the wait! I only hope she's penning another one, now. Her narrator Bianca Amato is one of the best in her field, she's brings life to every character!
