In this stunning novel, C. W. Gortner brings to life Juana of
Castile, the third child of Queen Isabel and King Ferdinand of
Spain, who would become the last queen of Spanish blood to inherit
her country's throne. Along the way, Gortner takes the reader from
the somber majesty of Spain to the glittering and lethal courts of
Flanders, France, and Tudor England.
Born amid her parents' ruthless struggle to unify and strengthen
their kingdom, Juana, at the age of sixteen, is sent to wed Philip,
heir to the Habsburg Empire. Juana finds unexpected love and
passion with her dashing young husband, and at first she is content
with her children and her married life. But when tragedy strikes
and she becomes heir to the Spanish throne, Juana finds herself
plunged into a battle for power against her husband that grows to
involve the major monarchs of Europe. Besieged by foes on all
sides, Juana vows to secure her crown and save Spain from ruin,
even if it costs her everything.
