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.… (mere)

Tidelands: A Novel(1) (The Fairmile Series) is a book that describes an alleged area in England as awful. The people are extremely poor and living very harsh lives. There is a lot of hatred, jealousy and finger pointing that lead to one poor woman being accused of being a witch. This only leads the reader to ask oneself, how come a man who uses leaves and herbs for cures is called an apothecarist and a woman who does this is called a witch? The story went on and on therefore three stars in this review. ( )

Because I had read the second book in the series I knew some of what was going to happen to the characters, which did ruin some of the suspense that was built in the story. I did find that a lot of what could possibly happen was very much flagged by the author, I had a fair idea of what was going to happen and I didn't really care all that much about the characters.
Although there is some romance in the story I wouldn't really regard it as a romance and I didn't find the relationship all that great. Alinor was a woman trapped by expectations and assumptions of others. Her ability with herbs and midwifery is starting to trigger suspicions of witchcraft, not helped by her missing husband who spread rumours about her.
I was readable but it didn't leave me feeling like revisiting it. ( )

A fascinating journey through the last few months of Charles 1 and the lives of the people of that time. The story focuses on the the folk of the Tidelands and a doomed romance between a poor woman and a privileged man. However, it is story that could have played out anywhere in those times, with the ever-present threat of "witch" bubbling under the surface of everyday life for any woman who deviated from the norm.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an e-copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. Philippa Gregory is one of my favorite authors - in fact it was Philippa that got me hooked on historical fiction and I own everyone of her books on The Tudors and The Plantagenet's.

This book is not at all like those and I knew that going in but couldn't' 'resist just the same. The book started out a bit slow for me but then by a little more than a 1/4 of the way through I was hooked. I found myself fully invested in Alinor and love her character. Philippa does such a great job in her writing style that reading along to the hard work of Alinor's day I found myself taking a deep breath as it made me feel tired and all I was doing was reading.

I can't wait to read the sequel Dark Tides. Don't be put off that this is not what you typically read by Philippa Gregory - it's worth it! ( )

You can always count on Philippa Gregory to give you a good story.This story takes place in 1648, a long ways back, and has a few sidestories, so I'm anxious to read the follow up the Darktides. ( )
