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.

terrible performance

The narrator sounded like an eight year old and did't even bother to lower her voice for a man speaking I have listened to over six hundred books and have never heard anything this bad. Most of the British narrators have lovely voices. This one was like finger nails on a blackboard.

Wrap up...

I enjoyed Meridon: Wideacre and have to say, even though it is well written and narrated, it lacked the unpredictability of Book 1 & 2. I would have liked less time spent on the earlier days, more time on what happened to the Wideacre clan after Sarah was given away to the Gypsies.

Incredibly frustrating characters!

The Wideacre trilogy was incredibly frustrating and sometimes tedious. Yet, I listened to it every moment I could just to see what happened in the end. It wrapped up a little too tidy, but I don’t begrudge the many hours spent listening to all three books.

24 minutes in...

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