Publisher Description

“There is only one bond that I trust: between a woman and her sisters. We never take our eyes off each other. In love and in rivalry, we always think of each other.”

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author behind the upcoming Starz original series The White Princess, a gripping new Tudor story featuring King Henry VIII’s sisters Mary and Margaret, along with Katherine of Aragon, vividly revealing the pivotal roles the three queens played in Henry VIII’s kingdom.

When Katherine of Aragon is brought to the Tudor court as a young bride, the oldest princess, Margaret, takes her measure. With one look, each knows the other for a rival, an ally, a pawn, destined—with Margaret’s younger sister Mary—to a sisterhood unique in all the world. The three sisters will become the queens of England, Scotland, and France.

United by family loyalties and affections, the three queens find themselves set against each other. Katherine commands an army against Margaret and kills her husband James IV of Scotland. But Margaret’s boy becomes heir to the Tudor throne when Katherine loses her son. Mary steals the widowed Margaret’s proposed husband, but when Mary is widowed it is her secret marriage for love that is the envy of the others. As they experience betrayals, dangers, loss, and passion, the three sisters find that the only constant in their perilous lives is their special bond, more powerful than any man, even a king.

“Told through Margaret’s voice…readers have more than a glimpse into the Tudors’ lives and an understanding of the emotions behind the history; they live the events. Gregory defines what it means to be a writer of historical fiction. She lures readers straight into the hearts and minds of her characters by masterful storytelling and brilliant reimagination blended with historical fact. She brings history to life.”

Quotes

  • “Philippa Gregory’s historical fiction about the Tudors, including the bestseller The Other Boleyn Girl, has earned her a devoted following, and Three Sisters, Three Queens is sure to bring her more.”

    — St. Paul Pioneer Press
  • “Although the urge to race through the novel to see what happens next is strong, smart readers will read slowly and savor the chance to travel back in time and live in an era that can now be found only in the pages of such a magical book.”

    — Book Reporter
  • “A fictional tale as steeped in history as it is in intrigue and family dysfunction….Gregory excels in plucking real-life women out of their secondary places in the historical chorus and placing them stage center in starring roles.”

    — Booklist
  • “The ultimate job in centuries past was ruling. Historical fiction maven Gregory takes on three women, all part of King Henry VIII’s world.”

    — Library Journal
  • “Narrator Bianca Amato, as usual, excels with Gregory’s material. The main character is spoiled and mostly unsympathetic Princess Margaret, but Amato strikes a wonderful balance between showing Margaret’s worst qualities and revealing some humanity and vulnerability. Furthermore, Amato subsumes herself into the story and puts the focus on the world that Gregory is reanimating rather than her narration.”
