From #1New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory comes the stunning first novel of a thrilling trilogy about the Lacey family, and the captivating woman at the heart of a power-hungry estate willing to go to any means to protect her family name. Beatrice Lacey, as strong-minded as she is beautiful, refuses to conform to the social customs of her time. Destined to lose her heritage and beloved Wideacre estate once she is wed, Beatrice will use any means necessary to protect her ancestral name. Seduction, betrayal, even murder--Beatrice's passion is without apology or conscience. "She is a Lacey of Wideacre," her father warns, "and whatever she does, however she behaves, will always be fitting." Yet even as Beatrice's scheming seems about to yield her dream, she is haunted by the one living person who knows the extent of her plans...and her capacity for evil. Sumptuously set in Georgian England from the "queen of royal fiction" (USA TODAY), Wideacre is intensely gripping, rich in texture, and full of color and authenticity. It is a saga as irresistible in its singular magic as its heroine.… (més)

Not a typical Philippa Gregory novel, in my opinion, but I've only read the Plantagenet series.
It's graphic, violent, and too disturbing for my taste. I'm a big Philippa Gregory fan, but I didn't like this novel and I won't read the others in the trilogy. ( )

I first read this as a young bookseller when it was published in 1987. I’m curious to see if I still find it disturbing. 7/9/22

Still disturbing. 7/10/22

It seemed to go on a few hundred extra pages to wrap it up so quickly in the end. I knew where this was going, and yet I read on. 7/13/22 ( )

It's hard to finish the books when you hate the characters so much. I suppose that means it's a well written book about obsession, but I just found it nasty. ( )

Spoilers.

The quality of writing is great - several notches above her Tudor and Cousins' serieses.

But... surprise! On page 54 we find out Beatrice's brother is a gay sexual masochist who enjoys being beaten. ( )
