The storyline and the author’s writing skills sound outstanding! I am interested in how she captured the society of the time and the development of the characters of Queen Maria and her daughter Isabella. Thanks for the review!

It sounds like Schrader is quite the up and coming historical fiction author. I love that she is using her history studies to create and share her passion with others. I also like that this book does cover more than just one group of people as it explores this time in history. This may be something that I will have to look into soon.
