Waiting on Wednesday (4)

Waiting on Wednesday – or WoW – is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

The book I can’t wait to be released is:

The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory

The second book in Philippa’s stunning new trilogy, The Cousins War, brings to life the story of Margaret Beaufort, a shadowy and mysterious character in the first book of the series – The White Queen – but who now takes centre stage in the bitter struggle of The War of the Roses. The Red Queen tells the story of the child-bride of Edmund Tudor, who, although widowed in her early teens, uses her determination of character and wily plotting to infiltrate the house of York under the guise of loyal friend and servant, undermine the support for Richard III and ultimately ensure that her only son, Henry Tudor, triumphs as King of England. Through collaboration with the dowager Queen Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret agrees a betrothal between Henry and Elizabeth’s daughter, thereby uniting the families and resolving the Cousins War once and for all by founding of the Tudor dynasty.

I loved The White Queen and cannot wait for this to be released, I have already placed a reservation at the library for it!

  1. I loved The White Queen too. I have an ARC of The Red Queen and can’t wait to get started on it.

    – You asked how I got involved in The Red Queen tour on my blog. The publisher actually posted on twitter about blog packs. I had it posted on my blog for a while, so it’s a shame you didn’t see it. 🙁 I hope you enjoy the book on it’s release anyway!

  2. I haven’t read The White Queen yet, but I keep meaning to. I’m off to check and see if my library has it so I can remedy that and put this one on my wishlist.
