Scotland’s history has been told many times, but never exclusively by its women. Rosemary Goring gives us a fresh perspective on dramatic national events as well as ordinary life, down the centuries. From the saintly but severe medieval Queen Margaret to today’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon, her new book includes women from all walks of life, offering a tantalising view of what happened to them, and how they felt. Drawing on court and kirk records, treasurer’s accounts, diaries, chap books and newspapers, government reports and eye-witness statements, Scotland: Her Story brings to life the half of history that has been hidden or ignored.
