Wideacre Paperback / softback

Part of the The Wideacre Trilogy series

Description

Philippa Gregory's first novel and first in the bestselling Wideacre trilogy.

A compelling tale of passion and intrigue set in the eighteenth century.

From the author of The Other Boleyn Girl and The Virgin's Lover. `If it was the way of the world that girls left home, then the world would have to change.

I would never change.' Wideacre Hall, set in the heart of the English countryside, is the ancestral home that Beatrice Lacey loves.

But as a woman of the eighteenth century she has no right of inheritance.

Corrupted by a world that mistreats women, she sets out to corrupt others.

Sexual and wilful, she believes that the only way to achieve control over Wideacre is through a series of horrible crimes, and no-one escapes the consequences of her need to possess the land. Sweeping, passionate, unique: 'Wideacre' is the novel which brought Philippa Gregory to bestselling fame and is the first of the trilogy which continued with 'The Favoured Child' and concluded with `Meridon'.
