5.0 out of 5 starsHer Story, My Story, Your Story

What a unique opportunity. Twenty seven authors offer twenty-seven different voices and a variety of stories on women of the past. If for no other reason than the collaboration of such a diverse group, this book is worth the read. For those who are younger, it is a glimpse into the lives of your mothers, grandmothers, great grandmother, and ancestors. For those who have lived the past, it is a reminder of how far we have come.
5.0 out of 5 starsBest writers chosen to bring this book to life

When you combine a powerfully potent topic such as this with writers such as Lorraine Nelson and Dianne Hartsock, this is a book that has all the hallmarks of a winner from the very first page. Having read these authors' previous books, it is difficult to imagine a better choice for bringing to life characters that create an intense, moving and memorable read. I am looking forward to reading more and suspect I won't be the only reader who feels this way.
December 2015 update: Gripping emotions and characters
Although I have had a chance, so far, to read only Lorraine Nelson’s contribution to HER STORY, if the rest of the book is anything like this memorable historical read, I highly recommend the publication. I was amazed how much emotion and character filled the pages and how instantly I was hooked; I felt as if I had read a much longer tale to be filled by the end with so many enjoyable memories. The descriptions and dialogue beautifully capture the period of the piece, and as with all of Ms. Nelson’s books, the strength and courage of the heroine, the bond that develops between the main characters, and the dialogue and page-turning plot are always a pleasure. My only “complaint?” I wish there were many, many more pages written about this delightfully memorable couple!
