witchcraft angle well here i camei m a new england girl who grew up on stories of goody proctor and giles corey and in undergrad i took a class with a global perspective on witchcraft which turned out to be the perfect me kinda class horrifying AND illuminating cuz no matter where in the world people cry witch the targets are certain to contain unmarriageable daughters infertile or otherwise

accused category are midwives and any women working in that mysteeeeeerious realm of women s health which is what we have here alinor is an herbalist and midwife living in the sussex tidelands half tide half land good for nothing where even the ground beneath one s feet cannot be counted on from one moment to the next alinor s ne er do well husband zachary is a fisherman who has not returned from the sea in months maybe dead likely having abandoned alinor and their two children but definitely leaving her in a precarious position as indefinable as the tidelands not a widow nor a

loves historical fiction for its immersive properties you will probably dig this it s a slow burner there s a lot of here we are in the tidelands this is life in the tidelands you cannot hear it but i am singing this to a tune but it s an accumulation of everyday things slowly moving towards something and i was getting impatient for the story to take me to that something if i hadn t been promised juicy witchy stuff on the back cover i would have been less impatient with the pacing i did appreciate the descriptions of the family s man v nature struggle the hardscrabble eking out of life in a terrifically challenging landscape how stubborn and resourceful you have to be to survive in such an inhospitable climate those themes always have my full attention maybe i ve been away from historical fiction for too long but i didn t love this the middle felt draggy and some of the characters were a bit one note particularly the exhausting mrs miller and o no alinor before you scold i understand how tenuous her position is i understand that even on the ever shifting tidelands one does not rock boats i understand that a woman who has seen nothing of the world beyond her little isolated pocket of it a mother of two with no man to speak for her in a profession she has to keep emphasizing does not include 17th century viagra or magical spells she s gotta lay a little low and not be seen as shrill or strident or defensive or any of those words we love so much to hear when a reasonable woman responds to chronically unreasonable people people like that broadly drawn mrs miller for example and i didn t need her to be anachronistically assertive or ooh rah empowered but even a little spark in her interior life would have been welcome one suppressed eyeroll or clenched fist an acknowledgment that her public facing demeanor takes effort she s placid as a messiah turning all the cheeks and every sentence she speaks is delivered simply evenly cooly steadily levelly easily it s an impressive number of synonyms for an endlessly agreeable person but it doesn t give her character much depth her daughter alys makes up for alinor s lack of indignation but as a character alinor reads psychologically flat my last gripe i swear but as far as the ending it s sodisruptive i mean it depends where the series goes from here but gregory spent so much time developing this physical location and this social community only to basically erase all that hard work with a JK NOW IT IS THIS abandonment of everything we ve been working towardsanyway this historical element

Summary ð eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ¹ Philippa Gregory Free download Tidelands 107 Philippa Gregory ¹ 7 Free download #1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory begins a sweeping new series with the stor. I have read several novels by Ms Gregory and I cannot recall that much of a romance thing in any of 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 for me When I read a HF I want solid historical background which I found in the novel but as little romance as possible which was precisely the opposite I struggled through this book finished but it was not what I had expected I literally opened my eyes wide on than four occasions and stifled than four yawns It might be interesting to see how Alinor fares in Book 2 but I do not think I will have that much courage Having said that this book was just OK for me I do not want to discourage any fans of Ms Gregory s writing
