Philippa Gregory fortæller i "Tidelands" er en gribende fortælling om en kvindes kamp for overlevelse under 1600-tallets borgerkrig i England.

 

Det er midsommeraften i 1648, og England er på kanten af borgerkrig mellem det rebelske parlament og kongen. Striden rammer hvert et hjørne af England, selv de sydlige og afsides marsklandskaber i Tidelands. Her lever Alinor, en efterkommer af en vis kvinde, nedslået af fattigdom og overtro. Under fuldmånen venter hun på en kirkegård for at møde det spøgelse, som vil erklære hende fri fra hendes voldelige ægtemand. I stedet møder hun den unge James på flugt, og viser ham de hemmelige veje gennem den lumske mark. Intetanende om den katastrofe hun lukker ind i sit hjerte.

 

I en frygtfuld tid for overtro og hekse er Alinor en udsat kvinde uden mand, og med et talent for naturmedicin. Mistænkt for at besidde mørke hemmeligheder i en overtroisk tid må Alinor kæmpe for sit liv.

 

"Tidelands" er første bog om Alinor i en planlagt serie af Philippa Gregory.

    'Gregory is an experienced storyteller and doesn't let you down. Tidelands is a gripping and intelligent portrait of a woman fighting to survive in a hostile world' THE TIMESTHE 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. `The first in a planned series . . .
