Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author behind the upcoming Starz original series The White Princess, a gripping new Tudor story featuring King Henry VIII's sisters Mary and Margaret, along with Katherine of Aragon, vividly revealing the pivotal roles the three queens played in Henry VIII's kingdom.
As sisters they share an everlasting bond; As queens they can break each other's hearts.
When Katherine of Aragon is brought to the Tudor court as a young bride, the oldest princess, Margaret, takes her measure. With one look, each knows the other for a rival, an ally, a pawn, destined - with Margaret's younger sister Mary - to a sisterhood unique in all the world. The three sisters will become the queens of England, Scotland, and France.

What the Critics Say

"Narrator Bianca Amato, as usual, excels with Gregory's material.... Amato subsumes herself into the story and puts the focus on the world that Gregory is reanimating rather than her narration." (AudioFile)

Wonderful

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.

- I like to shop

as expected!

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!
