Remarkable . . . Will Leave You Shaking With Loss But Also The Love From Which Family Is Spun. Emma Donoghue, Author Of Room Without A Doubt One Of The Best Novels I've Ever Read. Mary Beth Keane, Author Of Ask Again, Yes Two Extraordinary People. A Love That Draws Them Together. A Loss That Threatens To Tear Them Apart. England, 1580. A Young Latin Tutor--penniless, Bullied By A Violent Father--falls In Love With An Eccentric Young Woman: A Wild Creature Who Walks Her Family's Estate With A Falcon On Her Shoulder And Is Known Throughout The Countryside For Her Unusual Gifts As A Healer. Agnes Understands Plants And Potions Better Than She Does People, But Once She Settles On The Henley Street In Stratford She Becomes A Fiercely Protective Mother And A Steadfast, Centrifugal Force In The Life Of Her Young Husband. His Gifts As A Writer Are Just Beginning To Awaken When Their Beloved Twins, Hamnet And Judith, Are Afflicted With The Bubonic Plague, And, Devastatingly, One Of Them Succumbs To The Illness. A Luminous Portrait Of A Marriage, A Shattering Evocation Of A Family Ravaged By Grief And Loss, And A Hypnotic Recreation Of The Story That Inspired One Of The Greatest Literary Masterpieces Of All Time, Hamnet & Judith Is Mesmerizing And Seductive, An Impossible-to-put-down Novel From One Of Our Most Gifted Writers.
