The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory

The Red Queen

From Goodreads: The Red Queen tells the story of the child-bride of Edmund Tudor, who, although widowed in her early teens, uses her determination of character and wily plotting to infiltrate the house of York under the guise of loyal friend and servant, undermine the support for Richard III and ultimately ensure that her only son, Henry Tudor, triumphs as King of England.

This is another excellent work of historical fiction by Phillipa Gregory, outlining the path of those instrumental in bringing King Henry VII to power.  I enjoyed Gregory’s take on Henry’s mother, Margaret Beaufort, her non-failing belief that God meant for her son to take the throne, and her own drive and determination to make that happen.
