Maria de las Mercedes is one of the most loved figures in Spanish history and her premature death at the age of 18 confirmed her status as a romantic and doomed heroine. But Alfonso stood firm and once he became King insisted on marrying the girl he loved. After just 6 months of happiness, Mercedes died from typhus and Alfonso was heartbroken. Such at least is the legend, although it may not have been such a romantic story in reality, something that Queralt hints at in the closing passages of the book.
Whatever the truth of the great romance between the young couple, it certainly makes a wonderful subject for a romantic historical novel. The tale is told from a variety of viewpoints and includes some songs, letters and reports from journalists, all of which add to the authentic atmosphere.
Queralt has researched her subject well and writes with authority as well as empathy. I particularly appreciated the extensive notes at the end of the book, which included a family tree, a chronology, and a detailed Dramatis Personae, all of which are particularly useful for anyone not well versed in Spanish history. The reader is thus able to learn the facts behind the fiction and the novel gains a real credibility from this.
Although my knowledge of Spanish is by no means of a high level, I found the book easy to read as the language is straightforward and suitable for non-Spanish speakers. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
