Murder in Stratford
As Told by Anne Hathaway ShakespeareBook - 2005
'When a famous man dies,? says Anne Hathaway Shakespeare, ?it's always the men who write about his life. Why don't they ask the wife? And so she tells the story ?the way it was,? including their early days, William's rise to success as a playwright, and his involvement in the treason that threatened the life of Queen Elizabeth I.Anne and Will's marriage is tested by distance and his fame, but when Will's boyhood friend, the handsome and arrogant Richard Quiney, is murdered in the garden of the Shakespeare home in Stratford-upon-Avon and Will himself is accused of the crime, the family faces their most trying time yet.Among their circle of friends and family, plenty of people had reason to wish Richard dead, but it wasn't until Anne turned ?detective? that the case was finally solved. A delightful tour of Elizabethan England makes Murder in Stratford a delightful mystery for all fans of the Bard.
