SummaryAdd a Summary
The White Queen was the first book Philippa Gregory wrote about the primary female characters during the War of the Roses. She is not releasing the books in chronological order of the story line (she didn't do it with the Tudor novels, either). However, with the Tudor novels, they are great when read in the order she wrote. I expect this series will be the same.
The White Queen follows Elizabeth Woodville from just before she meets Edward to until after he dies. It introduces you to all the major players in the war in a way that makes it easy to follow. The whole series is a bit heavy on first person self-talk, but she is a nice character to follow.
