Product Details


“Entertaining…Fans of historical fiction, especially that of Tudor-era London, will enjoy Anne’s point of view and sweeping accounts of the times.”
-Reader to Reader Reviews

“An entertaining and admirable novel that offers a surprising reinterpretation of Will Shakespeare’s wife, Anne Hathaway, who shares, and helps shape, his dream.”
-Sandra Worth, author of The King’s Daughter: A Novel of the First Tudor Queen

“Arliss Ryan knows her Tudor London and the theater of that era. The Secret Confessions brings Anne Hathaway out of the shadows into real life, not as the neglected shrew William happily left behind in Stratford, but as a sensual, humorous, talented and daring woman. This is a compelling novel with unexpected turns in every satisfying chapter.”
-Jeane Westin, author of His Last Letter

“Controversial and clever, daring and detailed, The Secret Confessions of Anne Shakespeare out shocks any modern day tell-all. Anne, the feisty and dynamic narrator, gives us an in-depth view of her own life and of Queen Elizabeth’s England. The novel is as sweeping and insightful, tragic and comic as some of the bard’s own plays.”
-Karen Harper, author of Mistress Shakespeare and The Queen’s Governess
