    *****Five Stars!
    Hearts and Minds brings the voices of the suffragists to life in a compelling, entertaining and poignant collection of accounts. It’s a history book that should be read by all as we celebrate the centenary of the vote and continue the fight for equality.

    Meticulously researched yet never dull, it breathes life into a little-known corner of history

    CHOICE magazine
  • "Anecdotal and rich in detail, Robinson’s account moves effortlessly from suffragist to suffragist, using letters, journals and autobiographies to bring personal histories to life. It’s clearly a passion project for Robinson and she manages to hold a fresh lens to this otherwise well-documented portion of history."

    June Purvis, BBC History Magazine
  • "A fine and sometimes moving account of the struggle for suffrage."
