Joan of Castile (1479-1555, daughter of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella) has gone down in history as "Joan the Mad." Sent alone to Brussels, sheltered eighteen-year-old Joan is a willing pawn in her political marriage to a young Hapsburg, Philip Archduke of Austria, known as "the Handsome," consolidating Spain as regional power. Amazingly, Joan falls head-over-heels in love with Philip, who reciprocates initially, but then becomes noticeably indifferent. Barely troubling to conceal his affairs, she suffers sobbing, despairing, jealous rages, becoming more miserable and fixated. Was Joan mad, or did she love Philip with such uncanny relentlessness that he was, in the end, helpless in the face of her passion?

"It is a significant day for 80-year-old Antonio. His estranged son is coming to visit and all must be perfect. There will be a special champagne toast; an embrace; warm words that may finally bridge the gap between them. But first, Antonio must wait. Bedridden, he looks out his window at the Patagonian landscape and sees the past and present, while sensing the future. He escapes the eyes of his faithful caretakers and leaves the house for what might be a last walk in his fields, inhaling the scent of the land that has been his life."--Container
