This is an intriguing book, well written and captivating. My only regret is Philippa Gregory has only books about kings, queens and princesses. It would be refreshing to have another book like Meridon describing ascension from poverty to be comfortably well to do, without all that 'royalty' topic. I really enjoyed Meridon.

Throughout her entire life Meridon has sensed that she doesn't belong in the life she's leading, that ?Meridon' isn't even her real name, and that she has a real home somewhere, waiting for her. She's grown up in a gypsy lifestyle with her beloved sister Dandy and their step-father, a horsetrader. Leaving their step-father, Meridon and Dandy join a traveling circus and are finally able to start saving some money of their own, but just when things are going well an unthinkable tragedy strikes, leading Meridon to seek her true heritage.

This is a somewhat satisfying conclusion to the Wideacre trilogy. It certainly is more uplifting than the previous books. There are times that the heroine is rendered unlikable to the reader, and some of her actions seem contrived as merely plot devices. Overall, it was an interesting, if occasionally disturbing, series -- not bad for an author's first works.
