Inspired by her own experience, acclaimed historian Sarah Knott explores the ever-changing habits and experiences of motherhood across the ages. Drawing on interrupted letters, hastily written diary entries, a line from a court record or a figure in a painting, Mother vividly brings to life the lost stories of ordinary women. Double Lives by Helen McCarthy is a groundbreaking history of mothers who worked for pay that will change the way we think about gender, work and equality in modern Britain. Through vivid and powerful storytelling, Double Lives offers a social and cultural history for our times.
