Hamnet is a story of the ties that bind family together and tear them apart. A totally heart-wrenching, brilliant novel that gives personality and strength to a woman whose reputation has been badly handled by historians for centuries. Compelling, emotional and intoxicatingly magical.

What the Critics are Saying
The story of Hamnet Shakespeare has been waiting in the shadows for over four hundred years. Maggie O'Farrell brings it dazzlingly, devastatingly, into the light
Grief and loss so finely written I could hardly bear to read it.
Heartstopping. Hamnet does for the Shakespeare story what Jean Rhys did for Jane Eyre, inhabiting, enlarging and enriching it in ways that will alter the reader's view for ever.
