Wideacre Hall, set in the heart of the English countryside, is the ancestral home that Beatrice Lacey loves.
But as a woman of the eighteenth century, she has no right of inheritance.
Corrupted by a world that mistreats women, she set out to corrupt others. Sexual and wilful, she believes that the only way to achieve control over Wideacre is through a series of horrible crimes and no one escapes the consequences of her need to possess the land.
