Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Bianca Amato, Graeme Malcolm

Historical Fiction • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Nine-year-old Margaret Beaufort fervently believes she is destined for greatness. She reveres Joan of Arc, spends hours each day kneeling in prayer, and is proud of her rough, scabby “saint’s” knees. Bianca Amato expertly guides listeners through Margaret’s turbulent life—from reluctant bride (she was forced to marry four times) to the agony of childbirth to her seething jealousy of Elizabeth Woodville (THE WHITE QUEEN) and her limitless ambitions for her son, Henry. As the War of the Roses rages (bloody battle scenes are read, uncredited, by Graeme Malcolm), Margaret’s fortunes rise and fall and rise again. Philippa Gregory is the queen of British historical fiction, and Amato’s performance in this second book in The Cousins War series is regal and riveting. S.J.H.
