    Feisty and Fiery and Fierce by Mairi Kidd is a remarkable collection of true stories of badass women in the Celtic nations of Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Jackie Crookston protested against the mistreatment of her fellow Scot and paid with her life. Grace O’Malley used everything in her power to defend Ireland against the English forces. Gwyneth Marjorie Bebb campaigned for her right to practice law in Wales and ultimately paved the way for many other ambitious women. A ‘coven’ of women’s storie Feisty and Fiery and Fierce by Mairi Kidd is a remarkable collection of true stories of badass women in the Celtic nations of Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Jackie Crookston protested against the mistreatment of her fellow Scot and paid with her life. Grace O’Malley used everything in her power to defend Ireland against the English forces. Gwyneth Marjorie Bebb campaigned for her right to practice law in Wales and ultimately paved the way for many other ambitious women. A ‘coven’ of women’s stories inspiring us to face our modern-day dilemmas in the true badass style seen before us. So not only is this book beautiful enough to simply lie decoratively on your coffee table, it holds knowledge of a history we were never told. Countless tales of women throughout time are being introduced within the pages. Stories of writers, prophets, witches and pirates, all who demanded more and never settled for less. They’re filled with uproars, challenges, victories and downfalls and I was captivated with each one. These stories feel like fairy-tales I’m unable to believe are real. A perfect book to gift and read to the whole family.
