Format: Paperback
I wasn't sure I should read this book after being disturbed by the incestual theme in Wideacre. This book was much more boring than Wideacre. The incest theme was also carried on. I got tired of page after page of descriptions of Wideacre and it's crops, smells, colors, etc. The heroine, Julia, is as much in love with the land as Beatrice was in Wideacre but she is an entirely different character. I got tired of waiting for her to stand up for herself against her crazy brother who had inherited the control/masochistic gene. Nothing much happens in this book until near the end. I would not recommend this book.

I am pleased that I read "The Queen's Fool" and "The Other Boleyn Girl" which both daughters have since enjoyed. Indeed, this wonderful reading experience enticed me to purchase and read the rest of Gregory's works .
"Favoured Child" and the rest of the trilogy is the first time in my life, I have not finished a book and also the first time I have returned a book ( actually the entire trilogy). I just could not get past the first few chapters in any of them and found myself "skimming" just to get it over with.
The characters and plot are such a farce it is extremely difficult to get "lost in". Both, appear as though they are intended only to titillate or shock.

I really liked this book too! I love that it is a story that carries through from book to book. Was very excited to start reading the next book of the trilogy. Julia wanted so much to make it right. My heart went out to her!

This is the second book in the Wideacre trilogy and I really enjoy reading Philippa Gregory, so if you like historical fiction I highly recommend her books.

Great book. If you like learning a bit about history while enjoying a great piece of fiction, then you would enjoy this book. This is the second book in the Wideacre Trilogy. It keeps in line with characters and themes from the previous book. Keeps you on your toes, takes you up and down and even more down. This book isn't about fairytales. The author is not afraid to get gritty and talk about raw topics. Enjoy!
