Book Review — “Tidelands” by Philippa Gregory

“Tidelands” is the tale of Alinor, a poor but proud mid-wife in an age of accusations, paranoia and judgment. Its set in 1648 England, which is in the middle of a civil war between the King and Parliament, turning neighbors against one another in an already miserable time. Philippa Gregory does a good job of making you feel as though you’re right in the middle of it all. Her characters are well-defined, the landscape and living conditions are described vividly, and there are plenty of villains and heroes in this story, which is the first of a series. This isn’t my usual genre, but I really enjoyed it; I look forward to reading Book Two and beyond. Disclaimer– I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher!! Definitely recommend! 🤩🤩🤩🤩
