Pleasant story about the life of Anne Hathaway (probably nee Agnes Hathaway, who knew?) before and after marrying William Shakespeare, the event for which she is known. Since few facts are known about her life there is a great deal of speculation, but there is no whitewashing of the facts that Hathaway was pregnant when she and Shakespeare were married, or that Shakespeare left his wife in Stratford while he became a prominent stage actor in London. Probably most interesting for readers interested in Elizabethan history or in Shakespearean drama.
