Author’s Echo – Philippa Gregory

Hello there guys! Welcome to this week’s Author’s Echo – where I share to you some of the quotes I liked from a particular author. This week I decided to share to you some quotes from the author that is responsible for my love of historical fiction; No other than Philippa Gregory. Hope you’ll like it!

“You can smile when your heart is breaking because you’re a woman.” -The Other Boleyn Girl

“If it means something, take it to heart. If it means nothing, it’s nothing. Let it go.” -The Other Boleyn Girl

“He promised her that he would give her everything, everything she wanted, as men in love always do. And she trusted him despite herself, as women in love always do.” – The White Queen

“A man will always promise to do more than he can do to a woman he cannot understand.” – The White Queen

“Words have weight, something once said cannot be unsaid. Meaning is like a stone dropped into a pool; the ripples will spread and you cannot know what back they wash against.” -The Constant Princess

“Anyone can attract a man. The trick is to keep him.” -The Other Boleyn Girl

Philippa 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 White Queen, the story of Elizabeth Woodville, ushered in a new series involving The Cousins’ War (now known as The War of the Roses).

  1. I love this blog post idea!! Would you mind if I used it in the future? I would of course credit you and link to your beautiful blog!

    I love these quotes. I now find an extreme urge to read through your older posts like this as well 😋😊


      1. Of course I will! We all start someplace and often looking back, we see how far we’ve come and how much we’ve grown. It’s a great post idea.


  2. Yay! Lovely to see another Philippa Gregory fan. I read The Other Boleyn Girl and it reignited my love for historical fiction and then I went and purchase The Kingmaker’s Daughter, The White Queen and The Red Queen. Would you recommend The Constant Princess and other titles?

    1. Fi,nally! Another fan! 😍 oh yes!!! especially The Constant Princess. It was a good read especially if you are curious about Henry’s wives. If you are also interested to know what happened in the aftermath of Queen Anne’s death, you can read The Boleyn Inheritance.😄

      1. I hear The Constant Princess is really good! Katherine was one heck of a classy and dignified woman. I read a preview of The Boleyn Inheritance… Anne of Cleves is hilarious, I must read some more and was surprised to see that Katherine was far more cunning than you’d first assume.


      2. She is different but oh so lovely and unintentionally charming. XD Yes! Jane’s POV seems like it would make an interesting read, for some reason you can tell she was a rather complex person.
