My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The easy-going language and candor of the writers made this a heart-warming read. My personal favourites were the sections of memoirs and biographies towards the end of the book, as they offered the most complete pictures of the authors’ lives and experiences. Hensley does minimal editing on the accounts, so you get the full pleasure of each woman’s individual voice as if you are speaking with them personally. Reading this book was a wonderful experience and I have a whole new crop of heroes for support now.
