So begins Isabella’s story, in this vividly imagined novel about one of history’s most controversial queens. By the end of her life she united a country, initiated the Inquisition and sent Columbus to discover a New World. Cast out of her home as a teenager to live under the watchful eye of a conniving queen, she unwittingly became a pawn in one of Europe’s greatest power struggles from which she emerged more powerful than ever imagined.
From the glorious palaces of Segovia to the battlefields of Granada and the intrigue-laden gardens of Seville, The Queen’s Vow is a sweeping historical saga of a complex, fascinating woman whose mythic rise to power would go on to transform a monarchy, a nation and the world.
