Gregory, Philippa

Wise Woman

€ 14.95

Passion and betrayal fuse in this powerful novel of Tudor England.
Alys joins the nunnery to escape poverty but finds herself thrown back into the outside world when Henry VIII`s wreckers destroy her sanctuary. With nothing but her looks, her magic and her own instinctive cunning, Alys has to tread a perilous path between the faith of her childhood and her own female power.
When she falls in love with Hugo, the feudal lord and another woman`s husband, she dips into witchcraft to defeat her rival and to win her lover, only to find that magic makes a poor servant but a dominant master. Since heresy against the new church means the stake, and witchcraft the rope, Alys`s danger is mortal. A woman`s powers are no longer safe to use...
‘Compulsively readable.’ ANDREA NEWMAN, Sunday Express
‘Gregory’s principal feat in this elaborate novel is the irrefutable artistry with which she lends her prose a constant sense of history.’ Sunday Times
