Overview

Don Juan of Austria, one of history's most triumphant and inspiring heroes, is reborn in this opulent novel by Louis de Wohl.


Because of the circumstances of his birth, this last son of Emperor Charles the Fifth spent his childhood in a Spanish peasant's hut. Acknowledged by King Philip as his half-brother, the attractive youth quickly became a central figure in a Court where intrigues and romances abounded. Don Juan's intelligence, kindness and devout attachment to the Church enabled him to live unscathed in an environment of luxury, violence and treachery.


De Wohl paints in brilliant color the vivid scenes and characters at the Court of King Philip, Juan's campaign against rebel Moriscos in Andalusia, and the amazing climatic victory at Lepanto where he saved the Christian world from Islamic dominance. Here is a novel of high adventure which brings to life the turbulence of the sixteenth century with its conflicts of wickedness and piety, its sins of pride and conquest, its seething heresies and its great faith.

    Outstanding Novel

    Honestly, I did not expect to enjoy this book so much. I really like period novels and my husband enjoys spiritual writings. When he recommended de Wohl's novels, I was afraid they would be more theological than enjoyable. But I am happy to report that I was mistaken! I have just bought my 2nd de Wohl novel and am looking forward to another well-written period novel that happens to also be an uplifting story about another great saint!
