Our history has been told countless times, but women usually only get a walk-on part. 'Scotland: Her Story' aims to redress the balance, and offer a view of the nation's high points and darkest times from women's perspective.

Drawing on court records, diaries, chronicles, letters, newspapers, memoirs and interviews, Rosemary Goring has gathered the experiences of women and girls since the middle ages, be they nuns, servants, housewives, toddlers, doctors, thieves, schoolchildren, politicians, cooks, novelists and very many others. The result is an entirely original and often startling take on the past 1500 years. 


“I didn‘t wait to be invited back, I invited myself, in fact that‘s why I wrote another book”

BOOKMARK is better than most because it is superbly well organised, you look after me so well and because you, as a community, are so interested in books. I feel you actually want to hear what I have to say It‘s a marvellous event.  I will be back again if I can think of another book to write.
