Professional reviews

"Bianca Amato has a voice to rave about. Her narration is pure joy to hear. Add to that a fabulous story in this third installment of Philippa Gregory's Cousins' War series, and you have an audio experience to savor. Amato's elegant diction highlights the life, loves, rivalries, and betrayals faced by beautiful, intelligent, and unconventional Jacquetta of Luxembourg, mother of Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen. Amato captures both the young Jacquetta, a descendant of the water goddess Melusina, and the more mature woman who makes life-altering decisions for herself, her husband, and her many children. Court favorite and confidante to Queen Margaret d'Anjou, Jacquetta rises to power in a male-dominated society, an achievement that proves controversial and dangerous. Amato's striking performance draws lifelike portraits from Gregory's blend of research and imagination. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
