Elizabeth of York by Alison Weir

Alison Weir has written many books about the Wars of the Roses Era.  This one is told through the eyes of Elizabeth of York who was the Daughter, Niece, Sister and Wife of four kings.  She lived through and was a pivotal part of one of the most tumultuous times in English History.  The book was very interesting, but it is plain that not much is known about Elizabeth's actual thoughts or actions. Much of what Weir writes about she has surmised from records of other people.  Despite this Elizabeth of York is a good overview of the time period and what her life was like.
