Review quote

"No other scholarly work has attempted to address the significance of a whole panoply of women from a single noble family. This groundbreaking work makes a very important contribution to our understanding of patriarchy and women's agency in the past." Mary Elizabeth Perry, author of Gender and Disorder in Early Modern Seville
