New 5 Star Review of "A Medieval Woman's Companion"!

"A Medieval Woman's Companion: Women's Lives in the European Middle Ages by Susan Signe Morrison offers a treasure trove of information about the trail blazing women who lived during a tumultuous time in Western European history. In this book designed for young adult readers, the author introduces - in six informative and interesting chapters - twenty-one courageous women who defined their roles in a male dominated society....Morrison’s A Medieval Woman's Companion is a book that should be read by both men and women alike so that they get to know the lives of these amazing personalities who have helped shape the modern world as we know it today....Morrison proves that behind the male facade, it is possible to see resolute and resourceful women who took leading and diverse roles during the Middle Ages, and in the process they empowered themselves and future generations of women. From the pioneering Gudrun to the fearless Eleanor of Aquitaine, the innovative Hildegard von Bingen, the reformer Birgitta, the fearless Joan of Arc, and the inventive Teresa de Cartagena, we get to know the women who have made history 'her story' too."
