Review:

Praise for ‘The Wise Woman’:

‘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...Success results from the tense, almost shocking contrast between serious issues – religious doctrine, political integrity, social dynamics – and flights of erotic fancy.’
Sunday Times

‘Compelling... Philippa Gregory reigns supreme as the mistress of historical drama.’ Today
