Notes:
Midsummer's Eve, 1648, and England is in the grip of civil war between renegade King and rebellious Parliament. Alinor, a descendant of wise women, crushed by 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 neighbours. 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.

Reviews
I enjoyed this book, but perhaps not as much as Philippa Gregory’s other works. Set in the lead up to the English Civil War, it tells its story from a female point of view, as so many of her books do. However, I found the main character somewhat irritating which spoilt things for me. As usual though, the research into the time period and the places shines through and you can imagine yourself in the age and the landscape. I will read the next book in the series, but perhaps not rush to do so.
