Publisher's Summary

The brand-new series from the Sunday Times number one best-selling author 

The eagerly awaited first book in Philippa Gregory’s sweeping new series begins with the story of Alinor, a young midwife who finds herself tempted by a forbidden love affair.  But in a society that has already set a path for her, she is all too aware of the dangers that await a woman who dares step out of place....

The unmissable listen for summer 2019.

Praise for Philippa Gregory:

"Gregory has popularised Tudor history perhaps more than any other living fiction writer... All of her books feature strong, complex women, doing their best to improve their lives in worlds dominated by men." (Sunday Times)

"Popular historical fiction at its finest, immaculately researched and superbly told." (The Times)

"Engrossing." (Sunday Express)

Another great Story

Like "A Respectable Trade" this story draws you into the time period and keeps you immersed in the story, cannot wait for the next installment.

Wonderful story telling

Lovely to see what Philippa Gregory can do as a story teller when freed from the constraints of writing about well known historical figures. A brilliant expose also of misogyny expressed through religious righteousness.

Very disappointing read

Very disappointing read, I kept ploughing through but it never got any better. I found this book to be very boring.

Should be compulsory reading for young men

...to appreciate, when viewed through an historical lens, the level of casual and systemic misogyny that our society has inflicted for so long that it still can be difficult to identify and root out. Wonderful characters but the ending fell a little flat for mine. Well written and narrated.

Highly recommended listen

An interesting tale set at an interesting time in an interesting location; one I knew nothing about.
Really enjoyed everything about it. Philippe Gordon is a favourite author of mine and she didn’t disappoint.
Also very much enjoyed Louise Brealey’s narration.
