Reader Reviews

  • On Defiant Brides:

    ​"For the lover of American history, this was a great book...The work was well annotated, and researched, easy and enjoyable to read and comprehend. Recommend for those who enjoy lite history biographies and women’s studies."

  • On ​Isabella of Castile:

    “Nancy Rubin makes use of Prescott and in a sense pours old wine in new bottles. Her Isabella is more accessible than Prescott's pius queen. She also very ably puts Isabella in the proper perspective as the co-founder of modern Spain (at least from a geographic perspective)... but as Ms. Rubin's book ably demonstrates, she was much more than that.”

    —M.A. Newman

  • On The Reluctant Spiritualist:

    “The Reluctant Spiritualist is non-fiction but reads like a fast-paced whodunit. The mystery is whether spiritualism is a fact, or a fraud cooked up by two bored teenage girls in a farmhouse in mid-nineteenth century upstate New York.”

    —Stuart Ellison

  • On American Empress:

    “A fascinating & entertaining account about one of America's forgotten outstanding women. I learned far more about the American Revolution and how it affected ordinary people by reading The Muse of the Revolution than I ever learned in my American history class.”

    —Sonia Ibanez
