#Please Visit 4 Stars Philippa #visit 4 stars Philippa writes in her author s note at the end of Tidelands that she wonders whether It is possible to tell a ictional story which tells a historical truth and I believe she answers her own uestion with this novel as I m sure was her goal In her note she discusses the historical truth of which she speaks the voiceless women of whom no records were kept their deeds unmarked their education unattended and still they persevered in making lives or themselves often ordinary everyday lives in which they garnered their own

Cannot Recall That Much Of A Romance Thing In Anyrecall that much of a romance thing in any them I may be in the minority here however I want to be honest with myself whcih is always the case and I cannot say I enjoyed Tidelands too much The premise and the period are presented exceptionally well as is always the case with Ms Gregory but this time the rather unbelievable characters and their improbable relationships were too much or me When I read a HF I want solid historical background which I ound in the novel but as little romance as possible which was precisely the opposite I struggled through this book High Heat finished but it was not what I had expected I literally opened my eyes wide on thanour occasions and stifled than our yawns It might be interesting to see how Alinor ares in Book 2 but I do not think I will have that much courage Having said that this book was just OK or me I do not want to discourage any ans of Ms Gregory s writing 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 ind safe passage and their relationship orms the crux of the story Meanwhile Alinor s children are presented with opportunities that will save them A treatise on the law of marital rights in Texas from a life of menial work and poverty Alinor is like all mothers everywhere who wants a better lifeor herself and her children I admired her hard work ambition and determination But their good ortune only uels the suspicions of the townspeopleAs with all the author s books this is hefty at 448 pages and as it is the irst book in a series much time is spent setting up the background and life in the Tidelands I listened to thi. #1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory begins a sweeping new series with the stor.
