"The haves and the have nots"
4 stars"

A look into rural early England and the harsh conditions that the have nots had to endure. The haves despite their position of power are not always squeaky clean and the have nots have to battle them to survive. A great read.

Description

This is the reissue of the second novel in the "Wideacre Trilogy"; a compulsive drama set in the eighteenth century. The Wideacre estate is bankrupt, the villagers are living in poverty and Wideacre Hall is a smoke-blackened ruin. But, in the Dower House, two children are being raised in protected innocence. Equal claimants to the inheritance of Wideacre, rivals for the love of the village, they are tied by a secret childhood betrothal but forbidden to marry. Only one can be the favoured child. Only one can inherit the magical understanding between the land and the Lacey family that can make the Sussex village grow green again. Only one can be Beatrice Lacey's true heir. Sweeping, passionate, unique "The Favoured Child" is the second novel in Philippa Gregory's bestselling trilogy which began with "Wideacre" and concluded with "Meridon".
