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.”
“The Last Queen brilliantly traces Juana of Castile’s
electrifying drama ... Gripping and unforgettable!”
“I ached for this intelligent, one-of-a kind queen ... A
page-turner, a nail-biter, an eye-opener.”
