Three Sisters, Three Queens by Philippa Gregory
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Margaret may be the oldest Tudor princess, but when Katherine of Aragon is brought to court to marry Prince Arthur, Margaret realizes that she has a new rival as well as a new sister. With her younger sister Mary, these three sisters will become three queens: Katherine the Queen of England, Margaret the Queen of Scotland and Mary the Queen of France. Through a series of treaties, promises and betrayals, the sisters must continue to rely on their family connections in order to secure their own authority and the possibility to rule.
Three Sisters, Three Queens is the newest addition to The Tudor Court series. Although Henry and his torrid escapades are woven into this storyline, he is in the periphery with the primary story being the little known adventures of Queen Margaret of Scotland. The passages flow quickly and I wanted to know more. I will admit that about three quarters of the way through I went online to read a little more about Margaret, but overall readers can enjoy this book for the historical fiction it is. A great read whether you are reading it in the order of publication or the order according to history.
