Inhaltsangabe: "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 must-read for all fans of the Bard.
Audrey Peterson fell in love with England when, as Professor of English at California State University at Long Beach, she traveled there to pursue research for scholarly publication, so it is no surprise that all of her mystery novels are set in England. Audrey lives in Huntington Beach, California, near her daughters and two grandchildren.
In this curious book, William Shakespeare is accused of murder and is ultimately cleared of the charge by his wife, Anne Hathaway Shakespeare. The mystery, hwoever, is only a small part of the story. The book mainly details Shakespeare's life from Anne's point of view. From the couple's first meeting and marriage, through the birth of their children, to Shakespeare's success as an actor and playwright, the plot follows Shakespeare's life in London while Anne remains in Stratford waiting for his infrequent visits. On one of these visits, an old friend of Shakespeare's is murdered at a party at the Bard's home, and a guest says she saw Shakespeare with the murder weapon. Shakespeare's alibi is that he was talking with an elderly man during the time period, but this stranger cannot be found. This well-researched story lacks a strong mystery plot but will connect with genre fans who are also interested in the Bard. Sue O'Brien
