Waterstones Says

The first of an evocative new series from the Queen of historical fiction, Tidelands is set in a seventeenth-century England caught in the maelstrom of civil war and obsessed with the prevalence of witches. In Alinor, Gregory crafts yet another vibrant, captivating heroine who must learn to survive in a world that is implacably opposed to her very existence.

The Brand New Series From The 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.
