5.0 out of 5 stars A community of caring, September 28, 2007
I am a teacher and I thought an empathetic person. I thought my own experiences and ability to self reflect and learn from others enabled me to be insightful, understanding and supportive. I was wrong. So many thoughts are never spoken. So many experiences are not shared.

Some of the narratives took me on a journey into familar territory; giving voice to my personal feelings. How amazing to know that others have felt my feelings. To be part of a sisterhood. To know that I am not alone.

Other narratives described pain and recovery; strength and persevance beyond anything I could have imagined. I am grateful to the authors for compiling these works; for empowering women to speak unspeakable thoughts; for permitting people like me to learn and to grow.
