Wideacre

Book #1

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory comes the thirtieth-anniversary edition of her sexy, scandalous debut novel about Beatrice Lacey, the beautiful, rebellious woman willing to go to any means necessary to inherit her family estate and keep her family name.

Strong-willed Beatrice Lacey refuses to conform to the limited life of an eighteenth-century woman. Threatened with the loss of her family name and beloved Wideacre estate once she is wed, she decides to take destiny into her own hands. Seduction, betrayal, even murder—Beatrice’s passion is without apology or conscience. Yet even as Beatrice’s scheming seems about to triumph, she is haunted by the one person who knows the extent of her plans…and the lengths to which she will go to keep the estate she feels is her birthright.

Sweeping, passionate, and unique, Wideacre is the page-turning novel that brought Philippa Gregory to bestselling fame.
