The King’s Curse – Philippa Gregory

Philippa Gregory’ The Cousins’ War Series transitions from the Wars of the Roses into Tudor times, using the long and eventful life of Margaret Pole, Countess of Salisbury. Born Margaret of York, she was the niece of Plantagenet Kings Edward IV and Richard III, and executed on the orders of King Henry VIII, aged 67.

A long but fascinating read – Henry VIII through a powerful-yet-powerless noble woman’s eyes.
