Read full description of the books Gospa od rijeke:Kao potomak riječne božice Meluzine, Jacquetta je naslijedila dar i sposobnost gledanja u budućnost. Udavši se za vojvodu od Bedforda, upoznaje se s tajanstvenim svijetom alkemije. Nakon iznenadne vojvodine smrti potajno se udaje za njegovog paža, Richarda Woodvillea. Vraćaju se u Englesku na dvor gdje Jacquetta postaje bliska prijateljica novoj kraljici, no osjeća da u engleskom narodu sve više raste nezadovoljstvo. Jacquetta se bori za svojega kralja i kraljicu, ali i za kćer Elizabeth, za koju predviđa neočekivanu i jedinstvenu budućnost. Gospa od rijeke snažan je i očaravajući roman koji obiluje strašću i legendama, i u kojemu autorica pripovijeda priču o majci Bijele kraljice, neustrašivoj lady Rivers.
Read information about the authorPhilippa Gregory was an established historian and writer when she discovered her interest in the Tudor period and wrote the novel The Other Boleyn Girl, which was made into a TV drama and a major film. Published in 2009, the bestselling The White Queen, the story of Elizabeth Woodville, ushered in a new series involving The Cousins’ War (now known as The War of the Roses) and a new era for the acclaimed author.
Gregory lives with her family on a small farm in Yorkshire, where she keeps horses, hens and ducks. Visitors to her site, www.PhilippaGregory.com become addicted to the updates of historical research, as well as the progress of her ducklings.
Her other great interest is the charity she founded nearly twenty years ago; Gardens for The Gambia. She has raised funds and paid for 140 wells in the primary schools of the dry, poverty stricken African country. Thousands of school children have learned market gardening, and drunk the fresh water in the school gardens around the wells.
A former student of Sussex University, and a PhD and Alumna of the Year 2009 of Edinburgh University, her love for history and her commitment to historical accuracy are the hallmarks of her writing. She also reviews for US and UK newspapers, and is a regular broadcaster on television, radio, and webcasts from her website.
