Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sex. Cancer. Divorce. Shark Attacks. A compilation of 51 essays sheds light on personal experiences and the power of the female bond."
-C Magazine


"The essays, poems, and art within its pages cover the gamut of our experiences, from self-love to friendship; modern motherhood to Mother Earth; from "finding yourself" to challenges of race and culture; and from overcoming obstacles to making mischief. The book provides moments of recognition, a few Aha's, and some eye-opening stories. Nothing but the Truth brings together a diverse and representative array of female voices. By chronicling our common experiences, the book has the potential to become a resource covering our inner lives..."
-Women's Voices For Change

"[This title] will impress the avid readers in your life...Female authors, activists, and entrepreneurs share their stories of professional and personal experiences in this collection of essays."
-Teen Vogue

"I love the diversity on display in [this book]. The women represent different races and ethnicities, come from different socioeconomic backgrounds. If you're seeking authentic inspiration and radiant truth, this is the book you should be reading."
-Gabrielle Bernstein

Ariana Huffington tweets support of Nothing But The Truth So Help Me God as well as a link to buy the book:@abandofwives: "we know that women change each other's lives just by being there for one another." bit.ly/YotpSA

About the Author

A Band of Wives (ABOW) is a private social network for all women: married, single, and everything in-between. It was founded in 2009 by Christine Bronstein as a private place for women to connect, flex their voices and support one another in unique and powerful ways. The works in this compilation are all authored by members of A Band of Wives; they range from notable authors such as Joyce Maynard, Deborah Santana, Sarah Manyika, and Lissa Rankin, to activists such as Dominique Browning and Aspen Baker. Other contributors to this book include professors, journalists, aspiring writers, widows, bloggers, housewives, a newscaster, a nanny, filmmakers, artists and photographers. The authors and artists included in this anthology are of differing ages, races, and socio-economic backgrounds to provide the reader with a broad perspective on positive female connection. The variety in the authors' careers and lifestyles gives this compilation a fresh and authentic voice. What the authors of this title have in common is an openness about their life experiences (be them difficult, blessed, or just plain comic) for the benefit of readers and a passion to promote the message that by supporting the women in our own backyards, we can change the world. This book was compiled and edited by Christine Bronstein and Carol Pott with assistance and co-editing by Mickey Nelson and Eve Batey.

Format: Paperback
Undaunted women spilling stories. The raw and honest truth--about surviving disease, losing sisters, feeling the sharp gnaw of mental and emotional instability, wrestling self-doubt, staring down financial uncertainty--is told in these pages. Universal tales of life's trials. Something for everyone. And the light, the hope that twists through and illuminates every story shines from every writer's women friends. Whether it's encouraging her to break out of boring bras into sexy lingerie to bolster a wavering self-image or fielding middle of the night calls from a newly-diagnosed breast cancer patient who feels she might die and leave her kids motherless, friends offering a touch, a hand, a laugh, an ear, without judgment or expectation cradle us through the dark times. We emerge on the other side of doubt, stronger and braver and sexier. And we stand together, knowing we can't live without our 'wives', poised to extend ourselves when it's our turn to shine the light.

Where do you go to connect with other women? You can go to an inspiring conference. Or get online via the social network for all women called ABOW (A Band of Wives) by Christine Bronstein.

Or you can read "51 Women Reveal the Power of Positive Female Connection" edited by Chris Bronstein, Carol Pott, Eve Batey and Mickey Nelson.

Mickey's story is my favorite. She shares with us how she lost her sister at an early age. Incredibly inspiring!

"Nothing But The Truth So Help Me God" is a Chicken Soup-like book for every woman's soul.

At Rugged Elegance, we're out to inspire healthy, adventuresome, soulful living. This book does all three. I call this H.A.S. Magic! Healthy, adventuresome and soulful ~ combined!

Kudos fellow wives! You knocked this first one out of the park! Just like the San Francisco Giants did sweeping the 2012 World Series on October 28th!

I've only read through half the book so far but find it incredibly inspiring and honest. This is no shallow read where we just get our pom-poms out for female friendship, rather it's about women who have all had such different lives (i.e. abortions, death of sister, overeaters anonymous)and yet how each life story has been impacted in positive ways by other women. It's more honesty than many women have with their friends and creates a longing in our hearts to build up the friendships that really matter. It makes you want to hear your friends stories all over again. Excellent gift! I bought 3 to give to my friends as a thank you for being a positive woman in my life!

You will laugh. You will cry. You will cherish each of these women's profound stories about the power of female connection. I am buying as many copies as I can of this incredible book--not because I am one of the featured authors, but because this is truly an amazing collection of journeys that will change the world. Women supporting women. Women encouraging each other to shine. Such an inspiring gift for anyone who has touched your life!

Rarely does one have an opportunity to have unadulterated vulnerability, humor, compassion and passion revealed with such honesty. Nothing But The Truth So Help Me God is a must read for any woman or any many who has ever known one!
