Tidelands

The Fairmile Series: Book #1
By Philippa Gregory
Narrated by Louise Brealey / 15 hours 29 minutes
Bookseller Recommendation

Tidelands

“A lifelong fan of historical fiction, Tidelands captured the essence of the time period without the glamour of the palaces and opulence of the court. The relationships that Gregory portrays are deep, timid, wounded by society, yet infused with the hope of a happier life. You will fall in love with Alinor's fierce protection as a mother, dreamy essence as a lover, and refusal degraded as a woman. Tidelands surprised me at every turn and left me expectant for the next in the series.”

The #1 New York Times bestselling author and “one of the great storytellers of our time” (San Francisco Book Review) turns from the glamour of the royal courts to tell the story of an ordinary woman, Alinor, who cannot bear to conform to the life that lies before her.

Midsummer’s Eve, 1648, England is in the grip of a civil war between renegade king and rebellious parliament. The struggle reaches every corner of the kingdom, even the remote tidelands —the marshy landscape of the south coast.

Alinor, a descendant of wisewomen, trapped in poverty and superstition, waits in the graveyard under the full moon for a ghost who will declare her free from her abusive husband. Instead, she meets James, a young man on the run, and shows him the secret ways across the treacherous marsh, not knowing that she is leading disaster into the heart of her life.

Suspected of possessing dark secrets in superstitious times, Alinor’s ambition and determination mark her out from her neighbors. This is the time of witch mania, and Alinor, a woman without a husband, skilled with herbs, suddenly enriched, arouses envy in her rivals and fear among the villagers, who are ready to take lethal action into their own hands.

It is dangerous for a woman to be different.
