March is a month dedicated to women. What better way to express our love and appreciation for all the wonderful women around us than to read some amazing female-centred books! Check out these Ringwood recommendations and join us in joint celebration of International Women’s Day (on the 8th) and the UK Mother’s Day (on the 10th)!

What You Call Free

This International Women’s Day, Ringwood warmly invites you to read with us What You Call Free by Flora Johnston, a moving tale of non-conformity and female-bonding. Set in 17th century Edinburgh, the novel unfolds the journey of two strong female protagonists in quest of freedom in the face of religious persecution. You can get your paperback copy of What You Call Free for £9.99 (plus P&P) here or as an ebook here.

Memoirs of a Feminist Mother

Carol Fox is a lawyer, best known in Scotland for successfully fighting mass equal pay cases for low-paid women and for playing an active part in the Referendum Campaign. As a committed feminist, Carol Fox has achieved success for very many women, but her greatest battle was very personal. Treat the mother in your life (or yourself) to Carol Fox’s witty, feminist account of her fight to become a single mother in the UK now by getting a copy of Memoirs of a Feminist Mother, available in ebook here.


Looking for a crime story told from a female perspective? We got you – in her novel, Bodysnatcher, Carol Margaret Davidson unfolds the horror of the Burke and Hare murders through the eyes of a woman who’s been a silent observer for a long time. Is she a mere witness, a victim, or an accomplice? Grab your copy here now and find out!

Raise Dragon

In the 21st century, L.A. Kristiansen signed copies of Raise Dragon in Rouen, France. But in the 13th and 14th century her ancestors – the likes of Bishop Wishart, Robert the Bruce, and the fearsome William Wallace – were involved in leading the wars of Scottish Independence and laying down the story for Raise Dragon itself. This International Women’s Day, learn all about L.A. Kristiansen’s ancestors who are as important to Scottish history as they are to this female author! Get your copy of Raise Dragon now, available in ebook here!

Sending our most sincere love to all the powerful women this International Women’s Day and to all the wonderful mothers this Mother’s Day!
