The Forgotten Queen by DL Bogdan

Margaret Tudor is just a child when she is wed to James IV, King of Scotland. Though she is young, she falls in love with her charismatic husband and Scotland. James is a renowned womanizer and devout in his faith, leaving Margaret battling him at every turn.When Flodden Field and her sister-in-law leave Margaret a young widow, Margaret knows she must be a mother and never love again. But the Earl of Angus has different ideas. Margaret's passions fracture Scotland, leaving little Jamie's rule unstable. Relying on both Scotland and her enemies to help keep her son's crown, Margaret is a woman alone.

Margaret Tudor comes to life in DL Bogdan's latest book. This vivacious redhead comes to Scotland and never stops astonishing the Scots. Like her brother, Margaret is prideful, temperamental, and harsh at times. Her passions are her life path. I really enjoyed her! Margaret has always been one of my favorite Tudors. She broke the mold is so many ways.
Bogdan captures Margaret's life with a vivid portrait of the Queen. Her vulnerability shines through and her rashness proves to be her downfall. Daughter, Sister, Wife and Mother to Kings, Margaret shines through history and proves herself to be anything but Forgotten!

I received this book from NetGalley. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher!
