Y of a poor uneducated midwife named Alinor who is tempted by a forbidden love affair but all to 4 stars Philippa Gregory writes in her author s note at the end of Tidelands that she wonders whether It is possible to tell a fictional 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 for themselves often ordinary everyday lives in which they garnered their own successes in whatever beauty and productivity that could accomplish for themselves and their families The heroine of Tidelands Alinor is just such an ordinary woman twenty seven years old descended from a line of women with knowledge of herbs and midwifery Her fisherman husband Zachary has disappeared at sea and it s unknown if he s dead or alive Alinor is faced with the bleak responsibility of raising her daughter Alys and her son Rob aloneThe year is 1648 the setting is the southern coast of England tidelands a landscape whose margins vary with high and low tide Only those who live there can safely navigate the marsh and mire One night Alinor meets Father James a young priest in his early twenties who is involved in the political intrigues surrounding King Charles I She hides James and then cautiously leads him to the local aristocrat Sir William a former supporter of the King Father James is immediately taken with Alinor although his background is as far from hers as wealth is from povertyThe love affair that develops between Alinor and James affects me in its simplicity and its subtle sweetness She maintains her cottage with great care it smells good as opposed to most of the cottages of the poor which smells like excrement and body odor Alinor s cottage smells like dry herbs and the fresh sea air blowing in She readily admits to Father James that her husband was just work for her to do James says he s never met anyone like Alinor her beauty has turned his head but she seems unaware of her beauty Motivated ambitious hard working and extremely productive Alinor knows how to save and spend her money how to take advantage of anything that will prosper her family and she feels like she has found in this man a love she never had from her ill tempered husband who constantly bad mouthed her to the neighbors as a witch This novel is a bit of a slow burn with time taken to bring the reader into Alinor s world where the women glean in the wheat fields work with chickens milk cows gather herbs and Alinor delivers a babe into the world and assists an old person out of it I was never many paragraphs far from the work Alinor was doing I found this absorbing and appreciated Gregory s careful and meticulous research Father James represents the religious and political thinking of those of that time who thought the king s right to rule was a divine right He will do battle in his soul because his devotion to the church and his politics are at odds with his love of Alinor Alinor does everything within her power to drive her own destiny Whether that is meant to be or whether it will be left in the hands of men will be for the reader to discover As the novel approaches the last third the pacing picks up as we race to climactic events A most fascinating way to submerge oneself into history A Treatise on Time and Space is tempted by a forbidden love affair but all to 4 stars
