The King’s Curse

by Philippa Gregory

Philippa Gregory, the author who brought us Elizabeth the White Queen, Margaret the Red Queen and made us fall in love with Anne Neville’s husband Richard III, now introduces us to Margaret Pole, Countess of Salisbury.

In Margaret, Phillipa Gregory has given us another fabulous heroine; a likeable, clever character who becomes one of the wealthiest women in the country. The reader is drawn into her passion for life. Her life, and this book, is a emotional soap opera full of love, joy, hope, betrayal, tragedy. When’s the TV Series...?
