The ueen's Vow

review The ueen's Vow The ueen's Vow Free download õ 5 Free read Ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free · C.W. Gortner No one believed I was destined for greatness So begins Isabella’s story in this evocative vividly imagined novel about one of history’s most famous and controversial ueens the warrior who united a fractured country the champion of the faith whose reign gave rise to the Inuisition and the visionary who sent Columbus to discover a New World Acclaimed author C W Gortner envisages the turbulent early years of a woman whose mythic rise to power would go on to transform a monarchy a nation and the world Young Isabella is barely a teenager when she and her brother are taken from their mother’s home to live under the watchful eye of their half broth. I ve not been looking forward to rating this one I am a big fan of Gortner I have pre ordered his last 3 books and The Last ueen is one of my hands down favorites The only way I can peg what went wrong with this one was simply too much detail Gortner s other books have always moved and been page turners This one was lacking that It just felt flat I felt I could skim 5 pages and didn t miss much In his other reads we felt for the characters and cheered them on Even the evil Catherine de Medici He has always had a way of making his readers feel they were right there in the story In this one Isabella and Fernando led a heck of a life The are mostly known for eliminating the Jews and Moors from Spain Gortner tells you their side of the story It starts with Isabella s childhood The first half of the book was about her bother Alfonso and the civil war between him and their half brother Enriue Then in the second part Isabella herself takes the lead and continues to fight for the crown I never felt emotionally attached to anyone The war scenes were non existent fans of The Confessions of Catherine de Medici remember being on the edge of our seats during the massacre of St Bartholomew Or when Juana in The Last ueen walked into the French Court and defied the king What a memorable scene I didn t feel that passion with this one A character list should have been provided for readers since there were many characters We experience her wedding to Fernando and we see how they come together Castile and Aragon to fight together for Spain and the church Please read this for yourself and make your own opinion I simply can t falsify a review even for one of my favorites I m still awaiting and excited about his next book about Lucrezia Borgia

Find this and other reviews at consider myself a historic fiction reader It is my primary stomping ground and the genre I feel I am most competent reviewing and yet for some inexplicable reason it took me nine years to pick up and read anything by CW Gortner How did I manage such as oversight you ask I have not the slightest idea but I will say having read both The ueen s Vow and The Tudor Conspiracy within weeks of one another that Gortner has uickly become one of my all time favorite authors and a staple of my personal library Now despite my having written and released my reviews in the reverse order I actually read The ueen s Vow before The Tudor Conspiracy a chance decision that gave me what is apparently a uniue view of Gortner s work Older fans seem to have mixed feelings about this piece and while I completely respect their opinions I think they might be selling Gortner just a bit short Yes the pacing of this novel does not rival his other works and there is an incredible amount of detail within these pages but from what I understand the scope of those stories depend on movement and tension while that of this book is much subtle the incredible detail necessary to the telling Perhaps it is just me but I believe comparing the two is rather like debating apples and oranges The ueen s Vow is at its core a fictional exploration of a woman who has been defined by the unfortunate results of her political policies Scholars tend to judge Isabella of Castile in hindsight recognizing and often reviling her for those decisions that led to the persecution of thousands under the Spanish Inuisition as well as the decimation of native populations in both North and South America What Gortner is asking his readers in The ueen s Vow is if this assessment is fair Should we really judge this woman by the outcome of her declarations or should we consider instead the intent and context in which they were made On the surface it makes for less intense reading but I personally believe there is much to be said for a book that makes you reconsider the way you think of and view history Those who appreciate Tudor lit will find additional merit in this piece as it gives readers insight into the much maligned Catherine of Aragon Her faithful devotion to Catholicism is legendary as is the love she bore her husband and the passion with which she fought for the recognition of her rights as England s ueen and those of her daughter Mary as heir to her father s throne Admittedly this is the only fiction I ve read on Catherine s mother but I really liked the parallels intentional or otherwise emphasized in Gortner s work By illustrating Isabella s journey the hurdles she overcame to take her crown and rule in her own right to marry a man of her own choosing for love rather than political gain to ensure the stability of her realm through the sincere veneration of the Catholic faith one would have to be blind not see how such conviction ambition and determination might mold a daughter born to the woman Gortner paints in The ueen s Vow Tantalizingly provocative and thought provoking I found The ueen s Vow an intensely enjoyable read An elouent if fictional testament to the legacy of one of history s most controversial ueens
