Praise for Margaret of Austria

“Compelling and wholly convincing — at once a vividly readable novel and a long-overdue presentation of Europe’s unsung heroine to the broad audience she deserves.  This telling of Margaret’s story is captivating on a personal level, and classily comprehensive on sixteenth-century diplomacy.”

– Sarah Gristwood, author of The Tudors in Love and Game of Queens

“Gaston’s is a deftly-drawn rendering of this historically significant woman who embraced leadership at a time when women were discouraged from leading.”

 –Archduke Géza von Habsburg of Austria, author of Princely Treasures

“With sparkling dialogue and rigorous historical accuracy, Gaston brings Margaret to life, taking us along on her travels, sitting beside her at the negotiation table, and unearthing how she evolved into one of the most important rulers of the Renaissance.”

–Susan Abernethy,  The Freelance History Writer, European Women in History

“A captivating novel with rich layers of historical detail, Rozsa Gaston’s Margaret of Austria highlights the tenacity, resilience, and grace of a woman who crafted a unique role for herself in a time of patriarchal dominance, allowing her the freedom, power, and respect that few women in history have known. The drama weaves together Margaret’s part as a political pawn; her years of love forsaken, love found, and love lost; and the turmoil created by her extended royal family. All while capturing the nuanced details and motives that spurred Margaret’s decisions.”

–Jules Larimore, author of The Muse of Freedom: a Cévenoles Sagas novel
