A great collection of shorts stories featuring all kinds of different heroines. With stories ranging from Ancient Rome to the 1970s, and even a story set in the future, we were met with realistic heroines, flaws and all.
Some stories had characters that were entirely fictional, others were based on women who actually existed, famous or not. Some stories were even based on the author's own family member. Whether the heroine made strides in world affairs, or just strides in her own home, she was admirable.
Also noticeable was the fact that were met heroines who were from all walks of life: different classes, races, etc. This was a refreshing change.
There's something here for everyone. Every woman should be able to connect with the women written about here.
