The #1 New York Times bestselling author and “one of the great storytellers of our time” (San Francisco Book Review) turns from the glamour of the royal courts to tell the story of an ordinary woman, Alinor, who cannot bear to conform to the life that lies before her.

Midsummer’s Eve, 1648, England is in the grip of a civil war between renegade king and rebellious parliament. The struggle reaches every corner of the kingdom, even the remote tidelands —the marshy landscape of the south coast.

Alinor, a descendant of wisewomen, trapped in poverty and superstition, waits in the graveyard under the full moon for a ghost who will declare her free from her abusive husband. Instead, she meets James, a young man on the run, and shows him the secret ways across the treacherous marsh, not knowing that she is leading disaster into the heart of her life.

Suspected of possessing dark secrets in superstitious times, Alinor’s ambition and determination mark her out from her neighbors. This is the time of witch mania, and Alinor, a woman without a husband, skilled with herbs, suddenly enriched, arouses envy in her rivals and fear among the villagers, who are ready to take lethal action into their own hands.

It is dangerous for a woman to be different.

    Another very satisfying story from P. Gregory. I enjoyed this book very much and finished and less than a week. The story and its portrayal of daily life and struggles that women faced back in the 17th century is very vivid in the details... great read!

  • Carolyn S.

    Thought it very trite. Not a Gregory book at all.

  • Anonymous

    The story seems well researched but the storyline is slow. I kept waiting for something to happen and when it does it’s slow and anti-climatic. I was very disappointed as I have always enjoyed this authors books in the past. The narration is very good.
