Scotland’s history has been told many times, but never exclusively by its women. In her book, Rosemary 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 via Nan Shepherd and Muriel Spark, to today’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, Rosemary’s story encompasses women from all stations of class and fame and brings to life the half of history that has for too long been hidden or ignored.

Rosemary Goring is currently literary editor and columnist for The Herald and Sunday Herald.
