White Queen by Philippa Gregory
While the men and boys are off fighting over who's to be King, Queen Elizabeth wife of Edward of York is hard at work plotting and arranging who her children will marry for power and money. As entertaining as those royal Brits can be it is a bit difficult to keep track of who's who with multiple Richards, Edwards, Georges and Henrys. Gregory's historical fiction is well researched and a must read for Anglophiles. This is the first book in her series the "Cousin's War".
