Amazon UK Review
Married at sixteen. A queen at twenty-five. Declared insane and locked up by the men she adored. Juana “la Loca” - the last true queen of Spain. Juana - daughter of Ferdinand and Isabella and sister to Catherine of Aragon - is a woman ruled by her passions. Her arranged marriage to Philip the Fair of Flanders begins as a fairytale romance when, despite never having met before their betrothal, they fall desperately in love. She was never meant to be more than his consort and mother to his heirs; but, after tragedy decimates her family, she finds herself heiress to the throne of Spain. Suddenly Juana is plunged into a ruthless battle of ambition and treachery, with the future of Spain and her own freedom at stake. Told in Juana’s voice, THE LAST QUEEN is the enthralling and moving tale of a woman ahead of her time, who fought fiercely for her birthright in the face of an unimaginable betrayal. Juana’s story is one of history’s darkest secrets, brought vividly to life in this exhilarating novel.

Yippey! Received this book, which was on my wishlist, as a part of the historical fiction exchange; a book that I've been wanting to read for a while! Thank you Yorkshire-lass for going through the trouble of getting me this book! :-)

Journal Entry 4 by kalise at St. Florian bei Linz, Oberösterreich Austria on Monday, September 09, 2013
Deeply moving, captivating and expertly told, this is the story of Juana, daughter of Isabel and Ferdinand, married to Philip the Fair, and heiress to the throne of Spain. History chronicles her as being insane, "la loca" - but how "crazy" was she really? In the end she was but a victim to ruthless power struggles and betrayed by those she loved the most.

This book will go to maccanena - back to the UK!
