The King's Concubine Download ¸ 104 A child born in the plague year of 1348 abandoned and raised within the oppressive walls of a convent Alice Perrers refused to take the veil convinced that a greater destiny awaited her Ambitious and uick witted she rose above her obscure beginnings to become the infamous mistress of Edward III But always essentially she was alone Early in Alice’s life a chance meeting with royalty changes everything Kindly ueen Philippa deeply in love with her husband but gravely ill chooses Alice as a lady in waitin. Better than Philippa Gregory says the bold statement on the cover Oooh Big CallGregory is one of the finest architects of what I call the Likeable Villianess the abrasive self serving yet ultimately sympathetic anti heroine you love to hate Finest of these times might I add as a disclaimer since Margaret Mitchell s wonderfully complex Scarlett O Hara is arguably the doyenne of them allAnne Boylen of The Other Boylen girl is probably Gregory s most famous creation she puts the evil in Medieval LOL but I have always had a soft spot for her Beatrice a lesser known but beautifully shocking character from her Wildacre seriesSo does O Brien and her Alice Perrers live up to the hypeIt s a yesI m not sure I d go as far as to say this novel was BETTER than Gregory s work as a sweeping whole but it s most certainly on par with it and was thoroughly engrossing and enjoyableAlice Perrers takes a firm fourth place as one of my favourite LV s with a chutzpa to rival any of her courtly contemporaries The very fact these women have let s just say it the balls to do the things they do in the dangerous times they do them is endlessly fascinating to me and this novel didn t disappoint on any level It s also what I would call a good value novel long and meaty with plenty of plot and some fascinating language and trivia of the times hinting at a polished historian behind the penThoroughly recommend
