Publisher's Summary

The Wideacre estate is bankrupt. The villagers are living in poverty and Wideacre Hall is a smoke-blackened ruin. But in the Dower House two children are being raised in protected innocence. Equal claimants to the inheritance of the Wideacre, rivals for the love of the village. Only one can be the favoured child and inherit the magical understanding between the land and the Lacey family. Only one can be Beatrice Lacey' true heir.


What the Critics Say

"Set in England, this long, sweeping soap opera revolves around the women of the Wideacre estate, their lives and loves, triumphs and tragedies." (Library Journal)
"Gregory's galloping plot leads to a savage but satisfying conclusion." (Publishers Weekly)

Oh dear ! Rampant bodice ripping !

Phillippa Gregory usually interests me, but this time she really went too far. Shades of Dills & Hoone with very little history and a lot of panting.
Story was basically a good one, but would benefit from much trimming. Dialogue tended towards laughable... even allowing for attempts at 'period' flavour. No.. don't bother unless you have smelling salts handy.

Couldn't turn my ipod off!

I'm sleep deprived and behind on work but I HAD to listen to this book all the way to the end.
The pace is quick; the twists and turns not entirely expected. A ripping good yarn, as they say!

Now I have to wait for the next in the series. Please hurry!
