I was disappointed by the author prejudice against Islam. Even though she has done a lot of research on Muslim mystic women, she has omitted many powerful references in which both the prophe has emphasized the importance of treating women with respect, mercy and kindness. Her presentation of women's rights in Islam was clearly lopsided and unprofessional. I was left feeling frustrated at the false image she was trying to portray of Muslim women.

I love any book celebrating women and their strength in spirituality/religion/mysticism. This book is must have for any woman seeking to learn more of these powerful women. These are the feminine "rumi's"

Wish there had been more poetry, less biography.
Very enlightening to read of female mystics of centurys gone by! (Rabia 700 C.E.)
