WOMEN OF THE COUSINS' WAR The Duchess, the Queen, and the King's Mother

by | Read by Bianca Amato

History • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Bianca Amato’s rich tones turn this book’s three essays into the best kind of nonfiction listening: engaging, informative, and entertaining. These factual accounts will appeal to all listeners, especially those familiar with Gregory’s novels. Here she offers a fascinating account of Jacquetta, Duchess of Bedford, THE LADY OF THE RIVERS (2011). Equally informative, but less colorful, is David Baldwin’s coverage of Elizabeth Woodville, THE WHITE QUEEN (2009), while Michael Jones highlights the righteous piety of Margaret Beaufort, THE RED QUEEN (2010). Amato skillfully handles archival documents, letters, and diaries, presenting full-bodied portraits drawn from “informed speculation.” As more women historians enter the field, the way we see and understand women in history changes.
