Review: Three Sisters, Three Queens

A very interesting book that I read over winter break was Three Sisters, Three Queens by Philippa Gregory. I found that the book was very suspenseful and entertaining. I enjoyed reading the novel from the perspective of Margaret Tudor, a Tudor Princess whom I have learned about in AP European History this year. I loved reading the book, which was Historical Fiction, and reading about events that occurred in history from an influential character’s perspective. It was interesting to see how the author made these three key women in history both best friends and queens, but also rivals. I also thought it was very cool to see how the book tied in with my English class, as we just finished reading Macbeth by William Shakespeare. Coincidentally, King James, I of England was Margaret Tudor’s great grandson and was the King of England during Shakespeare’s time. If you want a suspenseful and historically accurate novel, I highly recommend this book to other readers over spring break!
