Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The subject matter of this originally self-published collection of unvarnished short personal stories and poems will resonate with many women. Underhill, who selected these pieces from more than 500 submissions, looked for moving expressions of a woman's joys, fears and pain. The stories cover such milestones as a chance reunion with a high school classmate, marriage, pregnancy, motherhood and coming to terms with aging. Many stories have an upbeat tone, such as Linda Dietrick's description of how she finally found a good relationship in "Falling in LoveAAgain." Others write about overcoming adversity, as in Paula E. Buford's account of her battle against gender prejudice at an all-male conference in "Fighting Discrimination with Dignity." A few contributions also present a darker view. Lisa M. Cheater's "The Visit" provides a harrowing account of a dysfunctional family, and Kimberly Luxenberg's "Dark Side of Genius" addresses the destructive power of drugs and alcohol. Although the writing iss often mediocre, the aim of most pieces is true. Agent: Jillian Manus. Major ad/promo; first serial to Woman's Day.

From Library Journal

Women seeking inspiration will find two very different approaches in these tapes. An ensemble company narrates Every Woman Has a Story. A few of the tales are so full of clich?s or "artful" symbolism that the story is lost. Overall though, they provide for compulsive listening. Grouped by broad themes (family, marital status, friendship, life passages, etc.), they will appeal to women from differing backgrounds. Listeners will laugh and cry as women share the small and large events of their lives,. from making meatloaf to dealing with death. When Money Isn't Enough is for the successful professional who finds the restrictions of the traditional corporate world increasingly unacceptable. Through the experiences of very successful women, listeners learn of nationwide efforts to encourage valuable workers to stay employed and, at the same time, spend more time with family or helping in the community. While not reflecting the experience of most employees or companies, the authors provide comfort and practical advice to those dissatisfied and disillusioned with "business as usual." While not priority purchases, these tapes are recommended for libraries whose users are interested in self-help topics. Both are recommended for public libraries; school libraries supporting writing classes may find Underhill useful, while users of business libraries will prefer Glaser and Smalley.AKathleen A.

Daryl Ott Underhill has done a fabulous job! This collection of heartfelt, intelligently-selected essays by women from all walks of life should not be considered a "women's book." Everyone over the age of fourteen -- if not younger -- can derive pleasure and benefit. Because it is a collection and the stories are short, it can be read at odd moments, but the reader is apt to find hi/rself continuing to the end out of pure enjoyment.

"EVERY WOMAN HAS A STORY" is a delightful read. I was impressed with the clever and yet simple idea of compiling a collection of personal stories, crossing socio-economic, ethnic, levels of education and age bounderies. The stories are as different as the women who wrote them, and yet the common thread is that of poignancy, honesty, a struggle to survive and grow, and a touch of humor thrown in for good measure. Some of the stories are simple, others more complex. I found them all to be human, tender and touching. I was particularly moved by Paula Silverberg's "LEAP AND THE NET WILL APPEAR". The charming tale of a young woman whose courage and determination in addressing a childhood disappointment, prompted her to face the "failure", muster the challenge, and, as an adult, emerge triumphant. A lesson for us all - "Feel the fear, but do it any way". As an added bonus I found the size and shape of the book to be reminiscent of a personal journal, and reading its content made it so much more endearing. Bravo to the ladies as well as the compiler! May we expect another collection soon?
