The Lady of the Rivers is part of Phillipa Gregory’s, The Cousins’ War, series. It starts out set in France and moves to England. It occurred during the reign of King Henry VI, it follows the life of Jacquetta of Luxembourg who is part of a family endowed with the ability to foresee the future. It was stated that she is a descendant of the river goddess, Melusina.

As with The Red Queen, The Lady of the Rivers tells the story of the War of the Roses, but from the perspective of Jacquetta who, at the tender age of 17, finds herself married to the Duke of Bedford, a man twice her age. The Duke encourages Jacquetta in her occult abilities to foresee his military fate.

The book is a mixture of historical facts and fiction. Gregory has woven a fascinating tale using both real and imaginary characters while providing the reader a window in to their lives in a time of treachery, betrayal and war.

For me, The Lady of the Rivers was a page turner as I became captivated by Jacquetta’s life. Though I thought again, as I do when I read of this period, why would anyone what to be a king or queen when people were always plotting your down fall. I also reflected on how many men died so that someone else could be in power.

The Cousins' War series encompasses the following books:-
The White Queen
The Red Queen
The Lady of the Rivers
The Kingmaker’s Daughter
The White Princess
The Last Rose
