New book giveaway competition! C.W Gortner’s ‘The Last Queen’

The Last Queen by C.W. Gortner

Last week I announced the winner of our December book giveaway competition at On the Tudor Trail, congratulations again Elina from Finland!

Today I am very happy to post the details of our January/February book giveaway competition. This time the lucky winner will receive a copy of C.W Gortner’s The Last Queen, the story of Juana of Castile the third child of Isabel of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragon.

It is an evocative and vivid portrayal of the life of a Queen that history all but forgot. I was hooked from the beginning and immediately drawn into the world of this beautiful and intelligent woman. Read my review of The Last Queen here and learn more about the author in my interview here.

  1. How great! Its funny, i actually just researched Joanna of Castile. Her story is sad, with the people in her life using her power to get themselves ahead politically.. Her own son confining her to a monastery for so long. I would be interested to know if the book sees her this way, or ‘mad’, as she was accused of being by her family…

  2. What a great competition. I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while now, but it’s not available locally. I introduced my friend Marina N to On the Tudor Trail. Thanks!
