The heroine's loyalty to a family that she knew cared nothing for her and gave her beatings if she didn't fall in line with their plotting was a source of constant irritation for me. Hard to sympathize with a character who is so spineless --- however realistic such a character would be given the times. I'd rather read about the one in ten thousand that wasn't a brainwashed wimp and took crazy chances to rebel. Synopsis from back of the book:
It was a time of unrest and dissension. A Protestant queen sat on the English throne, facing the threat of King Philip of Spain, who plotted an invasion of English shores. In the midst of all this strife was Maria Elena, an innocent Spanish girl torn between allegiance to her family and love for a British sea captain. Bravely she withstood accusations and abuse from both sides . . . until it seemed her loyalty and her love would cost her her life!
