Why do I have it? I like Norah Lofts as an author and have read and enjoyed several books by this author in the past.
This is a novel of Queen Isabella of Spain. It is based on fact and detail, presented as a personal chronicle of her life. Isabella’s fortunes were varied: she knew poverty and faced much anxiety and danger. I loved this story – it was very touching at the end. I give this story an A+!
