I really enjoyed this book, it was fascinating and captivating. Going into this book I didn't know much about Isabella at all. At the end the author states that certain dates he moved around for the sake of the story. That didn't bother me much or detract from the story at all because of my lack of knowledge about Isabella to begin with. At times this book felt really long but it was still interesting nonetheless. I would recommend this book to fans of the historical fiction genre.
