The 24 stories included in this collection were selected as being some of the finest stories portraying women as the star of the show, having been written from 1851 through 1921, and include one story that is not fiction, but a story of romance, intrigue and adventure all the same. “While the heroines in this anthology are fictional, they are not superhuman. You’ll find no goddesses that can bring change with the snap of their fingers. These are regular people who could be anyone—a mother, sister, daughter, aunt, grandmother, a friend, a neighbor. You may recognize their personalities in someone you know, and in yourself, and I have little doubt you will find yourself bonding with more than a few of them. The characters in these stories may have you on the edge of your seat anticipating their challenges and predicaments and you may weep in sympathy, nodding in agreement with their actions.” (From the Introduction.) 6 x 9, softcover.
