Product description

Review

Praise for ‘The Favoured Child’:

‘For sheer pace and percussive drama it will take a lot of beating.’
Sunday Times

Praise for ‘Wideacre’:

‘This is a story of violent love and unsettling passions. It will never let you rest for a page as you wait for the climax that must come for the people and the land.’
Maeve Binchy

‘Amid all the social upheaval strides Beatrice Lacey, who, for singlemindedness, tempestuousness, passion, amorality, sensuality and plain old-fashioned evil, knocks Scarlet O’Hara into short cotton socks.’
Evening Standard
