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.

Better than book 1 & 2

I honestly didn’t like book 1 & 2 but by this time I felt I had to finish the series. Book 3 is much better and I can say I did like it. I’m glad to say it had a good ending. Still, if I had it to do again I’d skip the whole series.

24 minutes in...

I already know exactly how this story will end. I really like the narrators accent though.

Wideacre Trilogy

I really enjoyed the entire trilogy. The characters were well developed and I was drawn into the plot immediately. I will however say that there was entirely too much redundancy in the story. I found myself impatient listening to it, which was at times annoying. All in all though it was a wonderful and memorable escape to listen to. the narrator was very good!

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!
