DESCRIPTION

England 1648. A dangerous time for a woman to be different . . . Midsummer’s Eve, 1648, and England is in the grip of civil war between renegade King and rebellious Parliament. The struggle reaches every corner of the kingdom, even to the remote Tidelands – the marshy landscape of the south coast. Alinor, a descendant of wise women, crushed by 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 neighbours. 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.Praise for Philippa Gregory:‘Popular historical fiction at its finest, immaculately researched and superbly told’ The Times 'Philippa Gregory is truly the mistress of the historical novel.

History buffs and Gregory’s fans alike will be anticipating the next installment’ Publishers Weekly ‘Richly detailed and brimming with secrets’ Shelf Awareness

Alinor, a descendant of wise women, crushed by poverty and superstition, waits in the graveyard ... Tidelands is a sobering reminder that the original concept of witchcraft in Europe was sexual but not remotely sexy. In fact, fear of witches looked a lot like batsh*t shorthand for the fear and ... I read Tidelands and, although an interesting insight into the rise of Oliver Cromwell and the demise of Charles I, I felt a sense of unease and foreboding throughout the book.
