Review: The Lady of the Rivers by Philippa Gregory

The Lady of the Rivers (The Cousins' War, #3) - Philippa Gregory

I was so excited when I received this book for review. Historical fiction was my first love and it has been a while since I went back to it. In this regard, The Lady of the Rivers did not let me down. It was full of everything we love in a book.. romance, war, family, love, betrayal, power, and even a little magic.

Jacquetta is the kind of woman we all love to read about. She is loyal to her husbands, can do know wrong and she possesses a unique gift. She can see the future. But she cannot just call upon anything she wants to see and she only sees spinets. The life she leads.. having so many children, always at the queen's side because of friendship, and staying loyal to her king even when she had her doubts.. this makes for an extraordinary book. Not once was there a slow moment in this entire book. I was utterly captivated and immersed until the end. I recommend this for any historical fiction lover. You will love it.
