Tidelands by Philippa Gregory

The start of a brand new series from this Sunday Times number one bestselling author

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.

Peer & Press Reviews

Tidelands evokes a world of suspense and superstition.  Its fascinating fictional heroine, Alinor, is caught in a net of in-between spaces…  I was completely swept up in this wonderful, immersive story set in the English Civil War when women who lived unconventional lives risked being accused of witchcraft.

Tina Jackson, Writing Magazine

Vivid and beguiling – Philippa Gregory at her best.
