KIRKUS REVIEW

A vivid portrait of the era of Ferdinand and Isabella, focusing on the tragic destiny of their daughter, Queen Juana. A victim of political intrigue, the young Queen spent her early years in luxurious imprisonment and ultimately yielded to total madness. Lawrence Schoonover's interpretation of this episode lends vitality to his heroine and a dimension of vividness to that crucial period of European history.
