A bold and intriguing novel about the woman who was William Shakespeare's secret wife, by the national bestselling author. As historical records show, Anne Whateley of Temple Grafton was betrothed to William Shakespeare just days before he was forced to wed the pregnant Anne Hathaway. Here, Anne Whateley takes up her pen to tell the intimate story of her daring life with Will. Obliged to acknowledge Will's publicly sanctioned marriage, Anne Whateley nevertheless follows him from rural Stratford-Upon-Avon to teeming London, where they honor their secret union, the coming together of two passionate souls. Persecution and plague, insurrection and inferno, friends and foes all play parts in Anne's lively tale. Spanning half a century of Elizabethan and Jacobean history, and sweeping from the lowest reaches of society to the royal court, this richly textured novel tells the real story of Shakespeare in love.

3.5 ⭐
If you like reading Shakespeare's poetry and plays, you will enjoy this book. This is the tale of the handfasted first wife Anne Whately, of Shakespeare. There is a supposition that Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway because she was pregnant, but that he had previously handfasted to the other Anne(which in Elizabethan times was the same as marriage). She is rumored to be his muse and his lover throughout his life. Recommend this book.
