A real life historical romance

If you could sum up Plantagenet Princess, Tudor Queen in three words, what would they be?

Treachery, politics and romance.Elizabeth of York as a pawn and a leader makes you want to listen through to the end of this audio-book. As a non-historian I was pleasantly surprised by the way this book held my attention and led me through the story.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Plantagenet Princess, Tudor Queen?

I kept forgetting that this is ultimately a true story. When Elizabeth married Henry VII I was excited to find out what happened next and then realised I already knew! The plotting and politics were fascinating to hear and listening to the plot unravel with such speed made for a great story. I would recommend this to anyone interested in this era and to anyone who .


Which scene did you most enjoy?

The childrens' births were well told and I was intrigued by the favours bestowed upon such unlikely shoulders for the sake of politics


Any additional comments?

Rachael Beresford's gentle tones kept me intrigued and entertained. Her accent reminded me of the true English nature of the text and the historical importance of the story. A wonderful, flowing portrayal of one of the most famous eras of English history.
