Very good biography BUT
August 26, 2004 - Published on Amazon.com

This is a very well-written and researched biography and is very good reading, BUT that being said, I would have liked to know more about Ena's relationships with her mother, brothers and a bit more about her relationship with her husband's family. The author doesn't bring forth any evidence regarding Ena's feelings about being a carrier of hemophilia, like Robert Massie did for Alexandra in "Nicholas and Alexandra". How did Ena cope with two hemophiliac sons, and why did she treat her second son, Jaime, so coldly? What were her relationships with her daughters? Was she afraid they would carry the gene, too? How did Ena feel when her brother Maurice was killed in WWI, just two days after she gave birth to her last child? These are the things I really would have liked to find out. But these revealations are not in this biography. However, that being said, it's upfront about King Alfonso and his problems, and the problems of their marriage. Recommended.
