I am a third of the way through this one and I am not enjoying it. Think I might just quit and move on to the next series by Gregory. I just do not like Beatrice...at all!
Horrible book I read three pages did not like
Perverse and heavy-breathing stuff. In some ways, Gregory's best work, but NOT for fans of the average historical romance (e.g. Johanna Lindsay) or Gregory's history novels, which are unfortunately constrained by facts. The Wideacre is vivid and out there.
I did not enjoy this book, I kept reading hoping it would improve. It didn't and I never finished it. Not her best work.
This is definitely a book to read if you're looking for over-the-top drama!
I loved this book and can't wait until I get my hands on the next in the series, The Favoured Child. Fast paced and filled with drama -- I kept saying "OMG what will Beatrice do next!" LOL
After enjoying Gregory?s ?The Constant Princess,? I decided to go back and read her works in chronological order. From the time she could sit alone on a horse, young Beatrice Lacey has grown to love and learned everything there is to know about the land of her father?s estate, Wideacre. To her young and naïve eyes, her father is grooming her to someday run the estate, and it is a shock when she realizes that she, just as all other ladies of Quality, must eventually marry and leave the estate. This is the story of the severe and unbelievable lengths Beatrice goes to in order to secure her place at Wideacre forever, only to tragically bring about its eventual ruin. By far the biggest flaw in this book is that most of the characters, the heroine(?) in particular, are extremely unlikable. I will continue the series.
