Juana the Mad! How can she NOT be memorable? Even Jean Plaidy's awful characterization was memorable, but it is C. W. Gortner's portrayal that I love. His Juana was total BFF material as a strong, vividly drawn, ambitious woman. I especially loved how the author wrote her in a way that I was never totally sure if she truly was truly mad from the get go, if she went mad as a result of her circumstances, or if she was completely sane. Well done!
