The King's Curse by Philippa Gregory

This is highly recommended for anyone interested in the Tudor period. Other Books in the series include:

  • The White Queen (2009)
  • The Red Queen (2010)
  • The Lady of the Rivers (2011)
  • The Kingmaker's Daughter (2012)
  • The White Princess (2013)
  • The King's Curse (formerly known as The Last Rose) (2014)

    This is a fictional story told from the first person viewpoint of the very real woman, Margaret Pole--lady-in-waiting and older Plantagenet cousin to the King--and her unique view of King Henry VIII’s rise to power in Tudor England. The reader observes the ever-growing insanity of life in the Tudor court through Margaret's experience. This is not a particularly sympathetic picture of the most notorious of all British royals (King Henry VIII); however, the author still manages to show the child and man he was before the corruption of power and poor advice, mingled with misfortune, took its toll.

    I found I loved this book as much, if not more, than this author's New York Times best sellers.

  • If The King's Curse interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
