Two books that I really, really enjoyed are being released today.
First off, “The Lace Reader.” “The Lace Reader” is the story of Towner Whitney, born Sophya Whitney. When her step-grandmother, Eva, goes missing, Towner is forced to return home to Salem, Massachusetts and face her past.
Secondly, “The Last Queen.” The story of Juana of Castile is a very dramatic and tragic one: Juana is married against her will to the heir of the Hapsburg empire. She loves him dearly at the beginning of their marriage, but as political circumstances between her husband and her parents deteriorate, so does their relationship. Her husband is an ambitious man and is determined to be named heir to her parents’ Spanish empire.
