Philippa Gregory ALWAYS a great read!
on January 25, 2015
I set myself a goal to read all of the books/novels written by Philippa Gregory. I quickly learned to enjoy her writing style. She caught me as a reader with her historical novels after I watched the television series "The White Queen" based on her books. Although this book is not an historical novel, I enjoyed it as much as her other books. Ms. Gregory writes from a woman's point of view AND with a touch of tongue-in-cheek sarcasm and humor. You find yourself smiling a lot and even laughing out loud at times. Her female leads are sometimes overly helpless, or overly cruel but they all seem to travel through a journey of growing and maturing. It's always a joy to watch the character go through that process and Ms. Gregory always leaves me guessing as to how the book will actually end as the story's intensity builds. I have now finished her list of books/novels, and await a new addition.
