  1. I ve read other books in this series, and all out of sequence I quite enjoyed this one, which tells the story of Elizabeth of Woodville s mother, and the early part of the War of the Roses It helped me with the background of how the wars began, and humanized the major players of both parties It is much the same as others in the series, in terms of writing style I did get rather tired of all the Wheel of Fortune tarot references, but Jacquetta and her family, and certainly Margaret of Anjou and H [...]


  2. Loved this book, and all series The friendship between Jacquetta and Margaret makes the situation in the Kingsmaker s Daughter and The Red Queen even touching, thinking back to all they went thru together I suggest reading starting with the Lady of the Rivers, then the Red Queen, the White Queen, the Kingsmaker s Daughter and the King s Curse Each of the books can be read by itself and you can still follow the story.I now own and have read almost all books by Philippa Gregory The only author who [...]


  3. I have read several Phillippa Gregory novels, and her works about the various women of power in early England are without question where she shines The White Queen in particular spoke to me, and when I found out she d written The Lady of the Rivers I was anxious to delve back into the world of Melusina s descendants This book did not disappoint A romantic tale with the backdrop of a terrible war, mystery, magic, and ambitious women I love love love the way this author is so adept at describing t [...]


  4. I loved this novel It opened my eyes and, understanding I always thought I knew what it meant to be Royal, Lady and Baron Baron Richard was so dutiful Knowing that the king and queen would not keep their promises to him I didn t know the king could give away parts of the kingdom away at will I also believed that you had to earn land by proving yourself in the military to earn titles It was eye awakening.The love story is so precious and rare Especially for her.I hadn t heard of alchemists before [...]


  5. It was all history, this Lord, that Lord, here comes another Lord many I couldn t remember which one was which after awhile The worst of it all was there was no character developmentyou didn t get to know any of them and very minimal development of even the main character and her husband There was zero feeling, very flat and absolutely no angst I found this book extremely boring and very one dimensional The only reason I finished it was because this author is so well liked I tnought it must be m [...]


  6. I love this book which is Phillips Gregories historical fiction of Margaret of Anjou and King Henry who had some issues mentally AND about Jacquetta Woodville and her Squire husband, and the mother of Katherine Woodvill Very well written and intriguing and I couldn t put it down I would love to read even about Jacquetta Woodville as I haven t found much at all in the way of the women of this time periods stories however difficult I m sure that is Phillips Gregory is on of my favorite writers of [...]


  7. The Lady of the Rivers is 3 in Philippa Gregory s The Cousins War series The story is about Jacquetta of Luxembourg, the mother of Elizabeth Woodville, and is a prequel to The White Queen, ending neatly at the exact moment that story begins With hindsight, I wish I d read this book first, as it explains the tensions leading up to the start of the Wars of the Roses, something I never fully understood maybe I should have paid attention at school It explains who all the leading players were, and th [...]


  8. If you like historic fiction bases on facts faction the this is a brilliant series There are 6 books and, although each book stands alone, if you are going to read all 6 you should must read them in the right order Lady of the Rivers, White Queen, Red Queen, Kingmakers daughter, White Princess and Kings Curse I found each difficult to put down They all look at the same period of history but each from the view of different women of the time They are a brilliant read Each is a great story, brillia [...]
