Kate Mosse on Warrior Queens and Quiet Revolutionaries:
“This is the book I’ve been waiting to write for so many years, having spent so much time in libraries and archives on the hunt for women’s stories. The catalyst to discovering, at the age of sixty, that I was walking in my great-grandmother’s footsteps as a novelist. All my fiction has unheard and underheard women’s stories at the heart of things and from my research – and, of course, my work with the Women’s Prize – I’ve been aware of how easily women’s stories can disappear from the record. So, this book is a labour of love to celebrate incredible women from the past, as well as a detective story to learn more about my own family reaching back into the 19th century.”
Praise from Professor Kate Williams:
“One brilliant woman writing about so many other brilliant women, this is a wonderful treasure chest of women’s lives, full of wit, verve and emotion. Inside these superb pages is a epic, fascinating world of warriors, writers, scientists, queens and more, women who have shaped the world and many who have been overlooked and forgotten. So many lives in so many times and places, woven with Kate’s own research into her grandmother, a woman I wish I could have met.”
