I wanted to like this book more than I did. It had some really good things going for it as the main character is someone I'd actually heard about in several college classes before and the portions in the book having to do with her painting were really interesting. The majority of the book had to do with her time with the Spanish court however, and while it was interesting and had me wanting to finish the book, I didn't fall in love with it as I'd hoped. I would recommend this but would warn readers that it is more focused on political and personal drama within the 16th century Spanish court rather than a woman trying to paint during the Renaissance.
