Enhance your purchase
She was taught to obey. Now she has learned to rebel.
When Princess Isabella is offered as bride to King Edward of England, for her it’s love at first sight. But her dashing husband has a secret, one that threatens to tear their marriage―and England―apart. As Isabella navigates the deadly maelstrom of Edward’s court, her cleverness and grace allow her to subvert Edward’s ill-advised plans and gain influence. But soon the young queen is faced with an impossible choice, taking a breathtaking gamble that will forever change the course of history.
In the tradition of Philippa Gregory and Elizabeth Chadwick, Isabella is the story of a queen who took control of her destiny―and the throne.
Revised edition: This edition of Isabella includes editorial revisions.

About the Author
Born in London, Colin Falconer began traveling in his teens after realizing that making it as a professional soccer player was simply not in the stars for him. He hitchhiked around Europe and North Africa and explored much of Asia before moving to Australia, where he freelanced for leading newspapers and magazines as well as TV and radio. Colin raised two daughters with his late wife, Helen, and volunteered in the ambulance service for over thirteen years. His travels have served as inspiration for his forty-and-counting novels in print. Ranging from vivid historical intrigues to contemporary thrillers, Falconer’s work is enjoyed by a wide international audience and has been translated into twenty-three languages.

I loved the way Isabella grew as the book progressed and, to me, she seemed a very believable person. She managed to push the boundaries of the traditional role of a woman of her time and cleverly, if only for the fact that she was queen, manipulate the men around her in order to survive in the cut throat world in which she lived.
I have read that she was sometimes referred to as a 'she wolf' but from this book I think you see a woman who is only doing what any intelligent woman would do in her situation, she is quite inspiring.
This may not be quite as glossy as a Philippa Gregory novel but I found it refreshingly entertaining, historically interesting and would definitely recommend it.
