Castile for Isabella Publisher's Summary

Fifteenth-century Spain is rent with intrigue and threatened by civil war. Here, the young Isabella becomes the pawn of her half-crazed mother and a virtual prisoner at the licentious court of her half-brother, Henry IV.

At just 16 years old, is she already fated to be the victim of the queen's revenge, the archbishop's ambition, and the lust of lecherous Don Pedro Girón?

Numbed by grief and fear, Isabella remains steadfast in her determination to marry Ferdinand, the handsome young Prince of Aragon, her only true betrothed.
