A New York Times Bestselling AuthorWhen 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 will become the queens of England, Scotland, and France.
"Once again, the prolific Gregory (The Taming of the Queen, 2015) mines the annals of Tudor history to fashion a fictional tale as steeped in history as it is in intrigue and family dysfunction. The three titular queens are Katherine of Aragon, Queen of England and Henry VIII's first wife; Margaret Tudor, Queen of Scots, wife of King James IV of Scotland and sister of Henry VIII; and Mary Tudor, Queen of France, wife of Louis XII of France and sister of Henry VIII. United in sisterhood by birth and marriage, these three powerful women immediately recognize each other as both allies and rivals in the treacherous world of court and national politics. Their bonds extend beyond natural and expeditious loyalties, as romance, scandal, war, and religion inextricably unite these three for better or for worse. Gregory excels in plucking real-life women out of their secondary places in the historical chorus and placing them stage center in starring roles.--Flanagan, Margaret Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review:
"Actor Amato, who has read three of Gregory's previous titles as audio editions, is terrific in Gregory's latest historical novel set in Tudor England. She deftly portrays the passions, ambitions, and catastrophes of three sisters from childhood through adolescence to queen-hood. She takes listeners along on the roller-coaster ride from ecstasy to agony and back again for the three 16th-century royals: Queen Katherine (first wife of Henry VIII), Queen Margaret (sister of Henry, married off at 16 to James IV of Scotland) and Queen Mary (sister of Henry and third wife of Louis XII of France). Amato's portrayal of protagonist Margaret is vivid and compelling. She also creates captivating voices and personalities for their husbands and lovers, as well as their infamous brother, Henry. Gregory's historical novels are sheer entertainment; the combination of Gregory and Amato is pure pleasure. A Touchstone hardcover. (Aug.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
