#1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory begins a sweeping new series with the stor. The time is 1648 not an easy time to be a woman especially a woman without a husband Alinor is left a single mother of two when her husband goes out to sea and never returns She ekes out a living as a midwife and herbalist in a time when those activities were viewed with suspicion and accusations of witchcraft were commonThe country is in the midst of a civil war between the King and his supporters and Parliament Alinor s path crosses with James a young priest and a Royalist She helps him find safe passage and their relationship forms the crux of the story Meanwhile Alinor s children are presented with opportunities that will save them from a life of menial work and poverty Alinor is like all mothers everywhere who wants a better life for herself and her children I admired her hard work ambition and determination But their good fortune only fuels the suspicions of the townspeopleAs with all the author s books this is hefty at 448 pages and as it is the first book in a series much time is spent setting up the background and life in the Tidelands I listened to this on audio which I highly recommend as the narrator is excellent Listening while multi tasking made even the political maneuverings palatable I appreciate the author s attention to detail and historical accuracy and it certainly made me appreciate my good fortune to live in the current timesThe last half of the book moves along at a fast pace and the ending was a shocker After so much time spent in the Tidelands I m looking forward to seeing where the next book in the series takes us This was a buddy read with Marialyce one we both enjoyed on audio For our duo reviews please visit
