Scotland’s history has been told many times, but never exclusively by its women.
Scotland: Her Story: The Nation’s History by the Women Who Lived It takes a unique perspective on dramatic national events as well as ordinary life, as experienced by women down the centuries.
From the saintly but severe medieval Queen Margaret to today’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon, it encompasses women from all stations of class and fame and notoriety, offering a tantalising view of what happened to them, and how they felt.
In this ground-breaking book, author and journalist Rosemary Goring brings to life the half of history that has for too long been hidden or ignored.
