    It is now a hundred years since the suffragette movement helped belatedly gain women (aged over 30 who met certain property qualifications) the right to vote. This must-read book marks the centenary by focusing on the courageous campaigners who refused to accept that men knew what was best for them.

    Based on archive letters, diaries and anecdotes, this hardback will take you from the publication of Mary Wollstencraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Women in 1792 through to the battle cries and slogans of the Suffragette movement during the early 20th century.

    Katherine Howard was Henry VIII's Fifth Queen and this biography provides an in-depth look at her life right up until her beheading in 1542 for crimes of adultery and treason - one of the biggest scandals of the Tudor era.

    Having first come to court as a young girl of 14 years old, Katherine's fate was sealed from an early age. This book looks beyond the traditional story of her sexual exploits before she married the king and instead reveals a life blighted by child abuse, family ambition, religious conflict and political and sexual intrigue.

    Revealing Katherine as a bright and intelligent woman who tried to be a good wife to Henry, the book reveals how she was really no more than a child in a man's world - and the tragic victim of those who held positions of authority over her.

    Like the Danish term hygge, the Swedish lagom has no equivalent in the English language but can be loosely translated as 'not too little, not too much, just right'. This book shows you how to love the lagom way of life.

    Sweden is one of the happiest nations on Earth and it's widely believed it comes from the Viking term 'laget om', which was said when mugs of mead were passed around in a circle so everyone just had a sip. A liberating concept that praises the idea that anything more than 'just enough' is a waste of time, lagom is also inspired by the core belief of responsibility and common good.

    By following the lagom way of life, you can live happier, reduce your environmental impact, improve your work-life balance and free your home from clutter. It also encourages you to enjoy good food the Swedish way and cherish your loved ones.
