In sum, the book discuses 23 women of the Hebrew Bible (the so called "OT"), from the well-known such as Sarah to the obscure such as the wife of Obadiah. Each author (this is a compilation) not only retells each woman's story, but she also provides an excerpt through that woman's voice where she discusses her experiences and what wisdom she has to share from said experiences. So not only do you learn a lot more about the Bible, but you also get to look at these stories from a different perspective: from the women who were part of it.
What I also like about this book is that even though it is written from an Orthodox Jewish perspective, you certainly do not have to be Jewish to get something out of it. These stories and the women featured in these stories are so relatable and moving that I think any woman could find some inspiration and wisdom reading it. I remember when we discussed the book in my class, several Christians (both women and men) said that they were very inspired by this book, too. So even though the target audience appears to be Jewish women, I don't think you necessarily have to be Jewish to appreciate this one.
