Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

Sister Queens: The Noble, Tragic Lives of Katherine of Aragon and Juana, Queen of Castile - Julia Fox Smart, insightful look at two daughters of Isabella and Ferdinand of Spain, and what became of them. While Katherine of Aragon has been written about endlessly, Juana of Castile's story tends to get overlooked. While I could have hoped for more about Juana, this is still a decent read, and a good, sensible biography that looks a bit deeper into the various, rather lurid, legends. Four stars overall.
