Margaret Beaufort: Mother of the Tudor Dynasty - Elizabeth Norton
I really enjoyed this book and it was interesting to read about the real Margaret. As a secret long time fan of hers, I now feel justified in believing there was so much more to this woman than is usually presented by (popular) historical fiction authors.

While this biography could probably be classed as 'history lite' it was accessible, readable and informative. While there are probably more thorough biographies out there, this is a great place start.
