The bestselling historical novelist reveals the book she has been working on for ten years that challenges the assumption that women played no part in major historical events. She maps an alternative account of Britain’s past through the eyes of guild widows, highwaywomen and other pivotal female figures, and tells the story of Britain through social and cultural transition, showing the agency, persistence and effectiveness of women in society including heroism, rebellion, crime, treason, money-making, jousting and sainthood. And much rioting.
