She's the One: Anyone can be a Heroine
The book comprises the winning entries in the She's the One competition. My own page is about St Teresa of Avila, the 16th century nun and mystic, whose writings captivated me while studying that period of European history. Not only did she have to contend with a patriarchal society, but the Inquisition kept a close eye on her writing. Yet St Teresa still managed to have her say, albeit written in such a clever way that she played the men at their own game.
The inspiring little book is now available in print and ebook from Amazon. A lovely gift for Mother's Day.
By sheer coincidence, today's feature on my Flights of Imagination blog is J.Q. Rose and her non-fiction book for teens, Girls Succeed: Stories Behind the Careers of Successful Women. It's a celebration of women all round today!
