This is the reissue of Philippa Gregory's first novel, a tale of passion and intrigue set in the eighteenth century. '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".
