Beatrice Lacey, as strong-minded as she is beautiful,
refuses to conform to the social customs of her time.
Destined to lose her family name and beloved Wideacre estate
once she is wed, Beatrice will use any means necessary to
protect her ancestral heritage. 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, 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.
