Jean Plaidy ´ 6 Review Summary é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Jean Plaidy Free download í Daughters of Spain ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB With Spain now united Ferdinand looked to his daughters to further his ambitions All too often Isabella found herself torn between his brilliant plans and her love for her children During. Jean Plaidy s series on Isabella is fairly traditional and different from the recently published historical fiction books She is not offering a revisionist feminist or jazzed up version of her characters It doesn t mean her characters are boring As the title suggests the focus here is not so much on Isabella but on the lives of her children We don t see Isabella as a ruler so much which was a bit disappointing to me we see her mostly as a caring mother I don t know how caring she truly was but there is evidence from historians that she indeed was emotionally involved with her children Apparently she was especially attached to Catalina her youngest evidenced by her reluctance to send to her to England earlier This fact is also mentioned by historians eg Trimlett who produced biographies of Katherine of Aragon I found Juana s story particularly interesting Again in her own interpretation Plaidy is not making any novel claims she accepts that Juana was touched by elements of the same madness her grandmother reportedly had Today Juana might perhaps be described as a spirited young woman a rebel and a non conformist however whether she was truly mad or not would be difficult to prove Some of later actions as reported in other sources were at least puzzling There is little doubt that both Isabella and Ferdinand used their children for political advantage This was the norm for noble families and even important for royalty I guess I expected a bigger focus on Catalina who becomes the first wife of Henry VIII known better as Katherine of Aragon but her character is not fleshed out She comes across as docile very attached to her mother and her own letters reveal this was truthful Katherine of Aragon however has later been described as a really stubborn woman not just by her contemporaries of course male chroniclers but also by some modern day historians Her strength of character is missing in the novel Overall like the other two of the series this last novel was a highly enjoyable read

Review I thought this book was incredibly good In my opinion it could have done with beginning earlier when Isabella Junior initially returned from Portugal or before she went I think it was very clever the way Juana s illness was discussed through Isabella s eyes rather than through Juana s or Philip s Another way the book could have been written was also through Ferdinand s eyes and doing a chapter from Isabella s point of view then a chapter from Ferdinand s but overall a very good novel Telling a story from the view of Isabella was a clever idea and it thoroughly explores her possible emotions and motivations for her actions And it could have done with exploring of Maria who is often not spoken about enoughGenre Historical DramaCharacters Katherine of Aragon Philip the Handsome Margaret of Austria Prince Juan Juana of Castile Isabella of Portugal Maria of Portugal Ferdinand II of Aragon Isabella I of CastileSetting SpainSeries NARecommend YesRating 1720
