Bad Girls from History: Wicked or Misunderstood?
by Dee Gordon
To be published: December 2017
Bad Girls from History recounts a wide array of tales of some very mischievous women. The wickedness captured in these stories ranges from the standard mistresses and adulterers, to the naughty-by-trade pirates, gangsters and witches, all the way out to the most deplorable serial killers and one-off murderers.
2.5 out of 5 stars: Each account is clearly well-researched, pieced together from what remains of records of the past, yet some of the tales still leave the reader wanting more – more historical context, more information about the society that these women found themselves in. Overall, it was interesting to learn of these women’s lives and impacts on the world around them, but the book felt as though it was spread a bit thin.
