Plenty of historical detail and an interesting run down of the personalities involved. Weir gives us as much of a look as possible into Elizabeth of York's life without making stuff up as you would be inclined to do as there is so little real documentation available.

"Elizabeth of York married Henry Tudor (Henry VII) in 1485 after years of factional struggle in the Wars of the Roses. This marriage helped Henry to establish a stable reign over England in place of violent political upheaval. Vividly depicting details of Elizabeth's life, biographer Alison Weir explains not only Elizabeth's significance in the line of royal succession, but also the value of her status as Henry's consort."
