WRIGHT, RICHARD B. - Mr Shakespeares Bastard

Fourth Estate, Australia, 2010. First Edition, Softcover. Very Good Condition. 9780732292409 In failing health, Aerlene Ward, an elderly housekeeper in an Oxfordshire manor, feels compelled to confess the incredible secret that has shaped her life: she is the illegitimate daughter of William Shakespeare, England s most famous playwright. But will anyone believe her? Even Charlotte, the young mistress of the house, who is writing down Aerlene's words, seems doubtful. Enchanted by the power and rhythm of words that she considers her birthright, coupled with her own imaginative mind, Aerlene draws back the curtain on her own life and that of her mother, the sensual Elizabeth, who allowed herself to be seduced by a poor but ambitious writer from Stratford. She recounts a story of love, daring, shame, consequences, beauty, truth and play and, as her tale unfolds, secrets are revealed, mysteries are uncovered, and lives are changed in the most unexpected of ways. Mr. Shakespeare's Bastard interweaves an engaging blend of invention and historical detail, with echoes of the Bard himself. – synopsis the book and its attached fold over flaps shows no sign of damage.
