Historical Novel Review
Random Ramblings of A Writer
It's 1491 when Juana's father heads of to battle to fight so the Spanish Christians can take over Granada but a short time later his son Juan gets sick, and he is called back home. Juana and Juan are like twins, though just over a year apart. Juan sticks up for his younger sister, and they even take lessons together, from the best tutors that can be found.
Granada Gold will take you back to fifteenth century Spain and will give you the glimpse of the lives of one royal family. Though this book is fiction, it is very well researched and gives you a very vivid picture of the lives.
If you like historical fiction you will love Granada Gold, it is an excellent read... Hard to put down.

I found myself drawn into Juana's story! I wanted her to succeed and be happy. I'm sorry, though, that it was not to be. I'd read another book by S.A. Carney.

I thoroughly enjoyed 'Granada Gold'. The story was told in a style that drew you in and carried you along. Although I knew some of the history of Spain and its kings around this time, S A Carney filled me in with so much detail, it was quite fascinating.
I can't wait for the sequel as I want to find out what happens to our feisty heroine and the evil people who surround her next...
