Shake-speares Sweetheart [sic]

Title

Shake-speares Sweetheart [sic]

Description

In this novel, Sterling borrows from the annals of history to recreate her own version of Anne Hathaway’s romance with Shakespeare which is meant to be written from Hathaway’s point of view. Unsuccessful in her efforts to put him off (as Anne believed herself unworthy), the pair fell in love. With a family dead-set against marriage, a secret wedding, mental illness, betrayal, and revenge, the story of William as imagined to be told by his bride leaves the reader wondering just where the inspiration for Romeo and Juliet came from…
