BookShop West Portal welcomes C.W. Gortner

BookShop West Portal invites you to join us Thursday, August 7th at 7:00 PM for a reading with C.W. Gortner author of The Last Queen. This exciting historical fiction debut tells the passionate story of a Spanish queen, her tumultuous marriage into the Habsburg Empire, the dynamic relations with her parents Ferdinand and Isabella, and her determination to hold on to the throne that is rightfully hers.

“This moving tale ... vividly reconstructs the passions, politics and betrayals that drove a smart and spirited queen to the brink of insanity ... An absorbing account of one of history’s most fascinating women, from her never-before-told point of view.” —Donna Woolfolk Cross, author of Pope Joan

“The Last Queen brilliantly traces Juana of Castile’s electrifying drama ... Gripping and unforgettable!” —Judith Merkle Riley, author of The Serpent Garden

“I ached for this intelligent, one-of-a kind queen ... A page-turner, a nail-biter, an eye-opener.” —Ki Longfellow, author of The Secret Magdalene
