    Daughters of Spain doc º reader Paperback ç Jean Plaidy Daughters of SpainThat was an interesting reading Again my opinions arent't the same as Jean Plaidy on this reading But maybe as i read a few recents books about Isabella of Castile Juana and Catherine of Aragon so my thinkings about them doesn't agree much with what were written on Daughters of Spain I don't see Isabella as a caring mother For me she was always worried about how to extend her reign So yes she used her daughters for that Catherine of Aragon was left behind on England She had to endure poverty and was neglected when she became a widow and later suffered alone when Henry betrayed her to stay with Anne Boleyn Juana was betrayed by her husband and later by her own father Both me

    Daughters of Spain doc º reader Paperback ç Jean Plaidy Daughters of SpainJean 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


  • Sue Law

    Daughters of Spain doc º reader Paperback ç Jean Plaidy Daughters of SpainA rather bitty and disappointing conclusion to the Isabella of Castille trilogy This novel covers roughly the last ten years of Isabella's life and stops dead leaving Ferdinand widowed Juana back in Flanders and apparently alienated from her husband the neglected Maria married in Portugal Catalina a virgin widow in England and Spain at the mercy of Ximenes de Cisneros


  • Brian McPhee

    Daughters of Spain doc º reader Paperback ç Jean Plaidy Daughters of SpainThe three books in this series Castile for Isabella Spain for the Sovereigns and Daughters of Spain tell the romantic story of Isabella and Ferdinand whose joint reign was the foundation for the unification of Spain and the creation of Spain as a global force The book focuses on Isabella who comes across as an indefatigable woman trying to do her best for her family and her country in a male dominated world These books are an easy read and a great pre holiday primer on a couple whose names and images will be found all over the country

    Daughters of Spain doc º reader Paperback ç Jean Plaidy Daughters of SpainThis final instalment of Jean Plaidy’s Isabella and Ferdinand trilogy is set during the 1490s and opening years of the 1500sAs the title implies this novel focuses on the Spanish sovereigns’ daughters of which they had four the most notable perhaps being Catalina better known to me and my fellow Englanders as Catherine of Aragon; Henry VIII’s first wifeThe story also features a son of Spain plus one of Ferdinand’s illegitimate boysThis is one of many h


  • Helene Harrison

    Daughters of Spain doc º reader Paperback ç Jean Plaidy Daughters of SpainReview 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 Ferdina


  • Sera

    Daughters of Spain doc º reader Paperback ç Jean Plaidy Daughters of SpainI really enjoy reading Jean Plaidy especially when the weather gets warmer Her books make excellent outdoor readingThis book chronicles the life of the children of Ferdinand and Isabella Even though the book is called Daughters of Spain the royal son Juan is also included in the story So much tragedy happens in this book in such a short amount of time that one wonders how the royal family was able to perservere especially Isabella as the mother of these children Juana is by far the most interesting of the bunch even though Katherine or Catalina tends to get the most attention in historyI would recommend this boo

    Daughters of Spain doc º reader Paperback ç Jean Plaidy Daughters of SpainSpain in the 15th 16th century ueen Isabella and King Ferdinand are on the throne This book is the 3rd in the Spain series but I didn't feel I'd missed out not reading the frist two as this is a story in its own rightThe book centres on the 4 daughters and one son of the King and ueen the most famous of these being Katherine of Aragon or Catalina as she was known in Spain It is also a time of huge unrest with Jews and Moors being expelled from the country I really enjoyed this book It was my first Plaidy and I found it very accessable and was a good introduction to this time and place that I didn't really know anything about It has certainly left me wanting to know

    Daughters of Spain doc º reader Paperback ç Jean Plaidy Daughters of SpainThe book's topic was very appealing though the writing and the portrayal of the characters was a bit simplistic I expected depth since it concerned court intrigue and the lives of the monarchy A good read for those interested in a general info on Spanish history during the 15th and 16th centuries
