    Blood Sisters PDF/EPUB Þ ´ Epub analogavalljud.co blood kindle, sisters ebok, Blood Sisters PDFRead ARC via netgalley I’m not sure when the current popular fascination with the Tudors began Was it simply the Showtime series with the glorious Jonathan Rhys Myers? Or was it Phillippa Gregory’s The Other Boleyn Girl? I’m not sure But it does seem like this book at least in its release is an answer to Gregory’s fiction surrounding the Tudor and Pre Tudor women Blood Sisters takes an in depth look at the royal women who were involved in the Cousin’s War aka The War of the Roses a difficult task considering that the women left little to go by I’m not sure if it is a response to the Women of the Cousin’s War by Gregory as well as her fiction set in the time period It doesn’t really matter because the book is actually very good Earlier this year I read a biography of Elizabeth of York and my complaint about the work and it was an older work was that the reader didn’t really learn anything about Elizabeth of Yor

    Blood Sisters PDF/EPUB Þ ´ Epub analogavalljud.co blood kindle, sisters ebok, Blood Sisters PDFSo the women of the Wars of the Roses specifically Margaret Beaufort and Elizabeth Woodville Wydville have always held great interest for me A couple of thoughts1 This book is clearly meant as a popular history not an academic one It's meant for audiences who have some but not necessarily in depth knowledge of late medieval England I had an easier time keeping the names straight in Gristwood's work than I did in the first Wars of the Roses book I read another popular history by Alison Weir whose work I was warned against using while writing my undergraduate history for not being academic enough2 As a popular history it's done well eminently readable and mak

    Blood Sisters PDF/EPUB Þ ´ Epub analogavalljud.co blood kindle, sisters ebok, Blood Sisters PDFNot as good as Game of ueens The Women Who Made Sixteenth Century Europe but am so familiar with the characters and why did she have to say that Cicely Neville had had to get her head round Edward IV murdering George of Clarence and Richard III probably murdering his nephews? The first is well documented and the second not at all In fact if it hadn't happened she'd have had no need to 'get her head around it' as it's in our time we suspect him she probably had no thought of it at all There are a few stray rumours in hers and he'd probably told her if he'd moved them or

    Blood Sisters PDF/EPUB Þ ´ Epub analogavalljud.co blood kindle, sisters ebok, Blood Sisters PDFA book supposedly focused on the women of the Cousins' War Wars of the Roses if you're old school which is meant to take away the focus from men and battles into the domestic political sphere and show us the human face not the clash of kings Only it basically doesn't at least so far Evidently there isn't the source material so in fact it is a procession of the various twists and turns and stuff the main players did ie mostly men and Margaret of Anjou with added descriptions of clothing and mentions of where the women were or indeed we don't know where the women were The author do

    Blood Sisters PDF/EPUB Þ ´ Epub analogavalljud.co blood kindle, sisters ebok, Blood Sisters PDFI highly and enthusiastically recommend Blood Sisters by Sarah Gristwood A fascinating and compelling account of the War of the Roses from the vantage point of the mothers sisters daughters and wives who also played central and catalytic roles The life of the medieval woman was hard and terribly often terribly short Womanhood began earlyMargaret Beaufort gave birth to the future Henry VII when she was just 14 She never bore a child or was known to be pregnant again Elizabeth Woodville wife to Edward IV married first at 15 was widowed at 22 and mother to the lost princes in the tower Her daughter Elizabeth of York married to Henry VII lost her son Arthur her son Edmund and died in childbed at age 37Amidst all of these challenges to merely live and protect their families these women were pawns and players victims and victors and riders on Fortune's Wheel This book is impeccably researched and one is almost transported via the descriptions from primary sources
