About the Novel:
Macbeth is the classic tale of a husband and wife's ambition and their eventual downfall. On their way home from a battle, Macbeth and Banquo are told of their destiny by three witches. Banquo is told he will father a line of kings, while Macbeth is told he will be crowned King. After informing his wife of the witches' prophecy, Lady Macbeth helps to put events into motion that will put Macbeth on the throne. While trying to keep their fate intact, the pair are met with many challenges that all seem to hold true to the witches' prophecy. Macbeth is thrown into a series of murderous plots, while his wife's ambition pulls her over the edge. Murder, greed, and the supernatural propel the story forward to an exciting conclusion.
