Publisher's Summary

The third volume in the best-selling Wideacre trilogy. Set in the 18th century, they launched the career of Philippa Gregory, the best-selling author of The Other Boleyn Girl and Three Sisters, Three Queens.

Meridon, a desolate Romany girl, is determined to escape the hard poverty of her childhood. Riding bareback in a travelling show while her sister, Dandy, risks her life on the trapeze, Meridon dedicates herself to freeing them both from danger and want.

But Dandy, beautiful, impatient, thieving Dandy, grabs too much too quickly. And Meridon finds herself alone, riding in bitter grief through the rich Sussex farmlands towards a house called Wideacre - which awaits the return of the last of the Laceys.

Didn't love it!

I read all three books and all of the author's historical fiction novels. These were a disappointment! I didn't like the incest plot or how the book ended. I couldn't image these women being so stubborn or stupid in The Favoured Child or Meridon. The last two were too predictable. I normally can't wait to have a moment to listen to my book, but not with these three.

Grand Finale

A wonderful ending to an amazing Trilogy! I've never laughed so loud or cried so hard listening to an audible. Charlie Sanderson was simply incredible in her many voices. Simply amazing!

Very disappointing

This 3rd book was boring and drawn out. The narrator was not as good either.
