The #1 New York Times bestselling author presents the first book in a new series set amidst the tumult and intrigue of england’s passionate family feud, The War of the Roses.

Meet the Plantaganets. Like the Tudors, they live high and love passionately, but this family story is set against the backdrop of The War of the Roses, a long war, pitting brother against brother, for the throne of England. Now Philippa Gregory, master chronicler of British royal history, brings this family drama to life through the lives of its women, beginning with the story of Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen. The White Queen tells the story of a common woman who ascends to royalty by virtue of her beauty, a woman who rises to the demands of her position and fights tenaciously for the success of her family, a woman whose two sons become the central figures in a mystery that has confounded historians for centuries: the so-called missing princes in the Tower of London. From her uniquely qualified perspective, Philippa Gregory explores the most famous unsolved mystery of English history, informed by impeccable research and framed by her inimitable storytelling skills. Timed to publish in the English language simultaneously around the world—and heralded by a global online event followed by author appearances in the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, and Australia—The White Queen ushers in the dawn of a great new era for Philippa Gregory. For the first time, one of our most beloved authors will have one exclusive English language publisher—Simon & Schuster—the perfect platform from which to launch what is sure to be another bestselling, classic series.
