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'.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Philippa Gregory:

"The eighteenth-century woman is a neglected creature but, in the figure of her heroine, Philippa Gregory has defined a certain kind of wildness...This is a novel written from instinct, not out of calculation, and it shows.' Peter Ackroyd, The Times

`For sheer pace and percussive drama it will take a lot of beating.' Sunday Times

`Gregory's research is impeccable which makes her imaginative fiction all the more convincing.' Daily Mail

`A story of violent love and unsettling passions. It will never let you rest for a page as you wait for the climax that must come for the people and the land.' Maeve Binchy

`Subtle and exciting.' Daily Express

“Simply stunning”

The first time I read this book I had to genuinely question how I could enjoy a book with so few likeable characters, to call the main protagonist a monster would not be overstating it, and she doesn’t stand alone.... More
