 In 1648 in England, there is a civil war between the king and his people. The struggle reaches every corner of the kingdom, even the remote tidelands. Alinor is a  poverty-stricken midwife and a healer. However, people around her believe she practices magic. They believe she is friends with faeries. 

On one Midsummer's Eve, Alinor decides to walk among the graveyard under a full moon to look for her abusive husband's ghost. Instead, she crosses path with James, who is on the run and looking for refuge. Alinor decides to help James but, little does she know that she is leading her heart into danger.

To be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect when I first picked up this novel. However, I do know that the novel had an interesting premise but, it was unnecessarily long and boring. I felt like maybe 200 pages of the novel was just fluff. The last few pages are when the story finally progresses but, I felt it was more of a cliffhanger for a second novel. Overall, the novel had a good plot but, it was too much fluff to be enjoyable.
