From Library Journal
Vanzant, a Yoruba priestess and metaphysician who lives in Maryland, writes with genuine depth of the struggles of black women and of the hope and strength that can be gained from honestly facing these "valleys" with compassion, forgiveness, and self-confidence. Vanzant outlines ten valleys; operative "laws" that govern them, e.g., "darkness must come to light"; the lesson that can be learned, e.g., forgiveness or humility; and the virtue to be acquired, e.g., consciousness or balance. She then devotes a chapter to each valley. Preceding each chapter is a meditation with the Mother of Creation who empowers her daughters. Highly recommended not only for African American women but for all who feel oppressed by the circumstances of their lives.--Carolyn M. Craft, Longwood Coll., Farmville, Va.
