Thanks for posting this! I borrowed the book from the library a few months ago.  It is an interesting read.

Of interest, there's an older biography of Isabella by William T. Walsh originally published in 1930.  It's been reprinted and is available through Amazon.  I bought my copy through an online Catholic bookstore.
As for Juana, Julia Fox wrote a dual biography of her and Catherine of Aragon.

Yes this book was really interesting.  She has so many great points.  The Walsh biography sounds great.  I'll look into it.

Not sure about the integrity of Julia Fox.  Downey lists a biography of Juana by Bethany Aram in her bibliography which I have now put on my wish list.
