Tidelands

Philippa’s new tale is a deviation from her
traditional writing about kings, queens and courts
and is the start of a new series. Set in England,
1648 on the tidelands, where the sea meets with
mud before the land and focused on Alinor, an
abandoned fisher-wife. She is struggling, yet
with fortitude and resolve, to carve out a living
for her two children and herself. Alinor is skilled,
hard- working and makes her meagre living
from tending to births, deaths and illnesses as
she knows and understands the mysteries of
the herbal physics. She also works on nearby
farms, carrying out the owner’s menial tasks and
tolerating their pious attitudes towards a woman
in her circumstances. Alinor is an authentic
character you can sympathise with and you do
want to cheer her on.
Philippa writes with a descriptive style that
defines the era – the plight of a woman in 1648
and the cold reality of what it means to be alone
with few options. She has set Tidelands in the
time of the civil war in England and still weaves
the royal courts, church and parliament into her
most satisfying tale.
