My current read is ‘She-Wolves’ by Helen Castor. It is really good especially if you find, as I do, that early part of history fascinating. We normally hear of the victorious, notorious or disastrous heros or heroines that shaped the world we know today. Helen Castor gives us a brilliant glimpse into the women who were influential and worthy in their own right and who held kingdoms together when kingly husbands were away fighting land or religious battles.

Best wishes Denny Bradbury
