new book published!

My new book “Daughters of the North: Jean Gordon and Mary, Queen of Scots” is now published and in the shops!

cover of Daughters of the North by Jennifer Morag Henderson

“Mary, Queen of Scots’ marriage to the Earl of Bothwell is notorious. Less known is Bothwell’s first wife, Jean Gordon, who extricated herself from their marriage and survived the intrigue of the Queen’s court. Daughters of the North reframes this turbulent period in history by focusing on Jean, who became Countess of Sutherland: the most powerful woman in the north.”

The book is available from any good bookshop, including Waterstones, Blackwells and Amazon.

A beautiful hardback, the ISBN (the number you can use in any bookshop to order) is 9781913207755.

This link will take you direct to my publisher’s online shop:

“Daughters of the North” is also available as an ebook, and as an audiobook. The audiobook is beautifully read by actress Joan Walker.

I’ve had a few requests for information on how to order the hardback from the US and Canada: my publisher, Sandstone Press, are based in the UK, but they have North American distribution, so my book is available there from the end of May. You should be able to order it from any bookstore, including online retailers such as Amazon, or you can order direct from the North American distributor using this link.

Finally, if you would like to hear a little more about the book, including some stories about my research in archives, castle visits and why salt is so important, I was interviewed by the Stories of Scotland podcast, which you can now listen to by clicking here:

  1. Hi Jennifer: With the availability of your book through Amazon I will be able to order it there. I had asked you to send me a copy when it had been published, but this may be easier for you if you haven’t already sent it. Please let me know so that I can proceed.

    Congratulations on completion and publishing. I look forward to an excellent read.

    Sincerely, Earl Young
