England, 1464: Die Adelshäuser York und Lancaster kämpfen erbittert um den Thron. Als König Edward, der Erbe der Weißen Rose, der schönen jungen Witwe Elizabeth Woodville begegnet, ist es um beide geschehen. Doch Elizabeth weigert sich, Edwards Mätresse zu werden. Da heiratet der König sie entgegen allen Standesschranken – ein ungeheurer Skandal! Und keine Frau im Königreich hatte je so viele Feinde. Neid, Missgunst und Intrigen bringen Elizabeth und ihre Familie in größte Gefahr. Ihre Widersacher nennen sie eine Hure. Sie nennen sie eine Hexe. Doch Elizabeth weiß: Sie ist die Königin. «Philippa Gregory ist wahrlich die Meisterin des historischen Romans!

Mit diesem Buch gelang der Autorin in Großbritannien wie den USA auf Anhieb der Sprung an die Spitze der Bestsellerlisten. Die Folgebände der Reihe werden ebenfalls im Rowohlt Verlag erscheinen. «Gekonnt erzählt, mit Detailreichtum und Tempo. Gregorys Heerscharen von Fans werden begeistert sein.» (Booklist)

The purpose of this biography is to rescue a minor Tudor character from the curious combination of fact and fiction that has previously enveloped her, and present instead a clear-cut picture of one whose historical position in the complicated diplomacy of the sixteenth century has never been properly assessed. Though more romantic that that of many, her life is not untypical of other princesses of her time, who played important, if small, parts in its history. Mary Tudor was the favorite sister of a dominant monarch, Henry VIII, and her family characteristics are apparent in everything she did. A colorful figure in a colorful age, Mary adds another chapter, however brief, to the Tudor record. - Preface.

"... Boisseau recontextualizes U.S. feminism in the cinematic 20th century. White Queen challenges the narratives we have told about ourselves and illuminates the imperialism and celebrity worship that lurks within American feminism yet today." -- Lee Quinby, Harter Chair, Hobart and William Smith Colleges May French-Sheldon's improbable public career began with an expedition throughout East Africa in 1891. She led a large entourage dressed in a long, flowing white dress and blonde wig, with a sword and pistol strapped to her side. As the "first woman explorer of Africa," she claimed to have inspired both awe and trust in the Africans she encountered, and as her celebrity grew, she reinvented herself as a messenger of civilization and "racial uplift." Tracey Jean Boisseau's insightful reading of the "White Queen" exposes the intertwined connections between popular notions of American feminism, American national identity, and the reorientation of Euro-American imperialism at the turn of the century.

Weiße Rose, rote Rose – ein Kampf zwischen Liebe und Vernunft Henry Tudor hat sich nach der siegreichen Schlacht von Bosworth 1485 zum König krönen lassen. Doch der neugewonnene Frieden ist fragil: Um die verfeindeten Häuser York und Lancaster miteinander zu vereinen, heiratet er Elizabeth von York. Die Loyalität der Königin wird auf eine harte Probe gestellt, als ein junger Mann auftaucht und Anspruch auf den Thron erhebt. Elizabeth muss sich entscheiden, wem ihre Treue gilt: ihrem Gemahl, den sie langsam zu lieben lernt, oder dem Mann, der behauptet, ihr Bruder zu sein. «Philippa Gregory schreibt wirklich verdammt gut.» (Brigitte)
