Isabella by Colin Falconer

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Isabella: Braveheart of France
By Colin Falconer
ISBN: 971621250913
Trade Paperback

Synopsis: She was taught to obey. Now she has learned to rebel.
Isabella is just twelve years old when she marries Edward II of England. For the young princess it is love at first sight - but Edward has a terrible secret that threatens to tear their marriage - and England apart.
Who is Piers Gaveston - and why is his presence in the king’s court about to plunge England into civil war?
The young queen believes in the love songs of the troubadours and her own exalted destiny - but she finds reality very different. As she grows to a woman in the deadly maelstrom of Edward’s court, she must decide between her husband, her children, even her life - and one breath-taking gamble that will change the course of history.
Does she submit to a lifetime of solitude and a spiritual death - or seize her destiny and take the throne of England for herself?
This is the story of Isabella, the only woman ever to invade England - and win.

My Review: First, I have a confession to make I have not finished this book yet and not fault to the book on that. There was a little hiccup and received the book a little late for me to get it finished but I still wanted to tell you all about the book. This is the first book I have read by this author and so far it is an enjoyable book to read and I am sure the rest will be just as good. I have not read an books by this author before but the subject matter caught my attention. Being a fan of historical fiction I have not read much on France so was excited to receive this book. The author is doing a good job with the historical aspect of the story and making so I am really getting to know Isabella. Isabella was a strong woman as I am learning from this story. If you are a historical fiction fan then I suggest this book for you.
