Editorial Reviews

Review

"A consummate storyteller, Turpin paints marvelous portraits of some of the women who made the Church what it is today. I recommend this for all who are curious about women's influence on church history as well as for those who think women had no place in the Church's history. --Laura Swan, O.S.B., author, The Forgotten Desert Mothers: Sayings, Lives and Stories of Early Christian Women

About the Author

Format: Paperback
It was a great book and one I will return to. For women who feel they are alone in a men's church. It was great to see these dynamic women, read their stories, celebrate their success in following the Gospel in the place and time they found themselves.

I used this book in a church book club. It worked out well. Clear, easy to read and share. A good spring board to other books of its kind.
