Four Sisters, All Queens by Sherry Jones

The small Provence may not be a rich country, but it has great treasure. Four beautiful sisters, all destined to be Queens. Marguerite, the eldest and Queen of France, is ruled by her ruthless monster-in-law and forgotten by her pious husband. Eleanor, the fierce sister marries Henry, the King of England. She is loved by her husband, but hated by England. Shy Sanchia marries Richard, the harsh but wealthy brother of Henry. He buys the title of King of Rome. Sly and Ambitious Beatrice is given Provence by her father, and marries Louis' equally ambitious brother. Together they scheme and fight for the throne of Sicily. Her unchecked ambition, coupled with her inheritance make her the enemy of her sisters. Becoming a Queen is what these girls were made for. But being Queen is no fairy tale, it's is real life.

This fantastic book has it all: family drama, love, lust, betrayal, redemption and irony.  Sherry Jones brings readers along as the close knit sisters are thrown into the world of men. As the sisters are married off, competition ignites between the kings, forcing the sibling rivalry between the girls to explode. The result is tears, hysterics, and scheming politics. Jones does a wonderful job of bringing each sister back to life with all their strengths and flaws. Jones tells the story of Four Sisters, All Queens with freshness and vitality!!

I highly recommend this book to all HF Fans!

I received this book from the author. However, this in no way affected my review.


  1. Wow, Alison! I am thrilled. Thank you for reviewing my book! I hope you'll read the prequel, WHITE HEART, about Blanche de Castille, the White Queen. It does give some insight into the "evil mother-in-law" from FOUR SISTERS, ALL QUEENS.

  2. Seen this book in our "history book display" at my college. ^.^ Sounds drama-filled and I love it.

  3. Sounds like a great read...great review..
