I just picked up “The White Queen” by Phillipa Gregory (“The Other Boelyn Girl” author). I love her writing style (though “The Other Queen” was by far her weakest work) and have devoured over half the book in a few days. Great time period and great book – she really is the master of the Tudor historical novel and is now going back in time to the Plantagenets. The book is about Elizabeth Woodville, wife of Yorkist King Edward IV and mother to the ‘princes in the towers’ who died mysteriously. It’s also got the added element of the legend of Melusina, a goddess whom Elizabeth Woodville’s mother claimed to be descended from and a bit of the mystical added. Highly recommended.
I haven’t read any other Charlaine Harris books – I’m planning on rereading the Sookie books because I’m in TB withdrawal!
