Norah Lofts - Crown of Aloes

17. Crown of Aloes by Norah Lofts (1974)
Length: 303 pages
Genre: Historical Fiction
Started: 7 August 2009
Finished: 15 August 2009
Where did it come from? Borrowed from the library
How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 1 August 2009
Why do I have it? I like Norah Lofts as an author and have read and enjoyed several books by this author in the past.

This is a novel of Queen Isabella of Spain. It is based on fact and detail, presented as a personal chronicle of her life. Isabella's fortunes were varied: she knew poverty and faced much anxiety and danger. I loved this story - it was very touching at the end. I give this story an A+!

A+! - (96-100%)

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a newbie as far as book blogging goes, having been blogging at my daughter's blog for only about two and a half years. Now it's time for me to get my feet wet on my own. Please be gentle with this blogger. Love to hear from you all. Have a great day! :)
