TIDELANDS The Fairmile Series, Book 1

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Louise Brealey

Historical Fiction • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

A new series from Philippa Gregory is always a chance to do a happy dance. Louise Brealey's exceptional narration gives this title the life it deserves. In 1648, after his defeat in England's Civil War, King Charles is exiled to the Isle of Wight. Superstition and religious persecution permeate the tiny town and desolate tidelands of the region. One of the inhabitants is wise woman, herbalist, and midwife Alinor, whose husband, a fisherman, is missing. Looking for a spiritual sign, she goes to a cemetery, where she encounters James, a disguised Catholic priest. It proves to be a life-altering meeting. Brealey makes each of Gregory's incredibly detailed moments believable--from the treacherous tides and deadly intrigues to the dangers of just being human. S.J.H.
