Brings the characters to life

I have always enjoyed books that shed light on victorious Queens of medieval era. In a time where women have virtually no control over their own choices, I thoroughly enjoyed the authors telling of a valiant Queen ruling her own way.

Engrossing from the Beginning

“Young Isabella is barely a teenager when she and her brother are taken from their mother’s home to live under the watchful eye of their half brother, King Enrique and his sultry conniving queen. There, Isabella is thrust into danger when she becomes an unwitting pawn in a plot to dethrone Enrique. Suspected of treason and held captive, she treads a perilous path, torn between loyalties, until at age seventeen she finds herself heiress of Castile, the largest kingdom in Spain. Plunged into deadly conflict to secure her crown, she is determined to wed the one man she loves yet who is forbidden to her—Fernando, Prince of Aragon. As they Unite their two realms under ‘One Crown, One Country, One Faith’ Isabella and Fernando face an impoverished Spain beset by enemies.” I could not put this book down!!
