A very well-written book that focuses on both Katherine of Aragon and her sister Juana. Extremely well-researched and very interesting.
So well-written and finally giving Juana a proper look. It is easy to see why she behaved the way she did - not one single person in her life actually care about her well-being. They were all looking out for themselves and their own ambitions. Her father, her husband, her son, all of them.
Another phenomenal historical fiction about Queen Juana and her equally enigmatic sister, Queen Katherine of Aragon. Wonderfully written to reveal the diverging and interconnected lives of two remarkable women!
I am really enjoying how Juana and Katherine are being focused upon, rather than their male counterparts. It is a rare treat.
This book is superbly researched and full of interesting details of a dangerous time (gladly) gone by. It focuses on two of the daughters of Queen Isabella & King Ferdinand- Katherine (1st wife of King Henry the VII), and Juana (who was declared mad and her throne taken by all the men she trusted). It's heartbreaking as many of the people died young and very suddenly. It's intriguing because it's full of details about what they wore, what exactly they said and the true motivations behind their actions. And it's fascinating to see the how much information survives nearly 500 years later and just how different things were back then.
