Comment: This is a great book! The pages are clean and no markings found. The cover and spine are in good condition, there is some significant wear at the edges to the laminating of the cover. Still a nice, readable copy.

In their essays, Bartlett, Kramar,Chaplik-Aleskow,and Robinson take readers on a journey they will never forget. This anthology is a wonderful collection of stories of how contemporary women stand up and face their trials and persevere through their tribulation and are better, stronger women for having gone through them.

Format: Paperback
Each story is so well written and easy to read that I felt the emotions experienced. Aline Soules wrote about her husband's death in "Widowhood: One Woman's Experience" like she was having a conversation with a friend. I understood her confusion and understood what she was going through during that time. She made me care about her story. Same thing with Amy Arnold's story about Vina and Candy in "How Adopting Ex-Racer Greyhounds Changed My Life". That's me except with poodles and except they never raced. I, too, got miffed when one poodle preferred my husband over me. Truly enjoyable book. Thanks for compiling!

There is something for every woman in this exciting collection of essays that speak to the shared experiences of women. Scholars of gender studies, history, literature, and sociology will find a wealth of material in this exciting collection as will book clubs.

These experiences exemplify the range of passages that existing anthologies have yet to address in a single volume. The authentic, often lyrical prose speaks to a broad audience within and beyond academics.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jaikaur Leblanc on December 20, 2009
Format: Paperback
As women, our "her-storys" are often different than the stories of "his-tory" we are brought up to embrace as how things are/came to be. Otentimes, these "facts" are rather recollections by the historical dominance of men's voices with woman as supporting and rather passive players. As stories are powerful and bring meaning to life human, woman's stories of challenge and transfomation are crucial to the healing and revealing of not only that woman's story but others as well. This collection of stories of how women have met their life and it's range of experiences-as women-is an important and powerful addition to the stories we use to create the meaning and mythology of life as human beings, both as men and as women.
