Can't Wait Wednesday: Tidelands

Can't Wait Wednesday is hosted by Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

Tidelands by Philippa Gregory
Pub. Date: August 20, 2019



Goodreads says, "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."

Philippa Gregory is one of my favorite authors. I adore her books and I am excited she is branching out from focusing on the Tudors and the Cousins' War. I can't wait to check this one out. What do you guys think?

  1. I didn't know she had a new book coming out! I love her Tudor books, and this seems pretty different, but I'll probably give it a chance!

  2. I've always meant to try a Phillipa Gregory and the "witch-mania" aspect really appeals to me.
