After her cloistered childhood at the Spanish court, her youth spent in exile, and a loveless marriage, Eulalia gladly departs Europe for the New World. In the company of Thomas Aragon, the son of her one-time wet nurse and a small-town bookseller with a thirst for adventure, she travels by ship first to a Cuba bubbling with revolutionary fervor then on to the 1893 Chicago World Fair. She is there as an emissary of the Bourbon dynasty and a guest of the Fair, but secretly she is in America to find a publisher for her scandalous, incendiary autobiography, a book that might well turn the old world order on its head.
The Living Infinite is based on the true story of the Spanish princess Eulalia, an outspoken firebrand at the Bourbon court during the troubled and decadent final years of her family's reign.

A slice of life for historic fiction fans. Lessor known royalty and the goings on in Spain 1860's sets the beginning of the tale. A true story, this is a fiction/non-fiction account of two families living on the edge of tradition and the changing of the times as witnessed in their Spanish hometown, Cuban political change, and the witnessing of the Chicago Worlds Fair. Highlighted is the struggle of the key female roles and how subtly and overtly they brought about change. The story is paced well and takes the reader on an interesting and provocative journey.
