Not a droning rhetoric of historical data. Lifelike!
on 8 April 2017
Positively riveting account of a well-written idea of what history was like for our women - strong, yet passively influencing the course of the ages past. I enjoyed the little humanistic touches, such as Alison describes dialogue, in keeping with our age, yet carefully preserving exact historical documentation. This is a quality book at an affordable price. Well worth a scholarly study, or indeed, a starter book for those who are only just dipping their toe into the subject. In-depth, yet not droning!
