Philippa Gregory - Normal Women - 900 Years of Making History

As one of the world’s celebrated historical novelists, Philippa Gregory’s flair for blending history with imagination has made her a bestselling author worldwide. Based on a lifetime’s research, she now reveals a forgotten social and cultural history of ordinary women. Redefining ‘normal’ female behaviour to include heroism, rebellion, crime, treason, money-making, jousting, sainthood and rioting, she tells the stories of women who defied our expectations and took on roles that made them the trailblazers for the women of today.
