    Every Mother, Daughter, Sister, BFF needs to have this book!

    Again, Bless your Heart Caroline for signing my book with the personalization to my my 5 month pregnant daughter Shannon who was in the process of loosing her first baby as I was standing there before you. When your children are small you can kiss their boo-boo's,give them a cookie, tell them that everything is going to be alright,and somehow they always feel much better. I've never felt more helpless or been at more of a loss for words towards one of my children more than I was yesterday. I felt so empty because I felt as though I had exhausted everything that could possibly be said over and over again, I love you, I'm praying hard for you to have a miracle outcome. But this time Mommy could not make it better. I had already been through the most waring hellacious week of ups and mostly downs as I heard her in her desperate despair. I was completely exhausted at the signing which I'm sure you could see all over my face. This book will be given to my Shannon this month on her own 35th birthday as she will surely be continuing her recovery. I know that she will feel that it was written especially for her and will easily find comfort within the pages. She has traveled many a long road and yet she always finds her way back. It is true that every Woman is unique...but all Women are one of a kind! This book is a reflection of our Sista Womanhood. Respectfully, Inner Season Ceremonies

    One of the best poetry collections!!!

    Every woman on the planet needs this book! It is affirming, comforting, and makes you thankful to be in this glorious sisterhood! Such a great variety of poems as well from old classics to fresh,new voices. Caroline's writings that preface each section are alone worth buying the book. A gem.

    Caroline Kennedy...You sure do 'walk in beauty" WOW!

    Wow, "she walks in beauty" that discribes you Caroline. I waited my whole adult life to meet you and finally I did at your book signing. You were so gracious to let us all take unless photos of you. I love this book and I want to give it to all of my girlfriends that are turning 50. This is the most amazing collection of poems ever gathered for women. The timing is perfect, thank you for doing this.

    Mostly, thank you for being such a inspiration for all of us trying to survive in this crazy world. You are such a class act!

    Your Soul Sister

    This is an anthology I turn to over and over. It is on my bedsid

    This is an anthology I turn to over and over. It is on my bedside table where it has helped me on more than one occasion to find peace and solace. Not to mention laugh-out-loud moments: Kim Addonizio's "What Do Women Want" is one to read aloud to your friends, preferably when you are all enjoying a glass or two of wine! Interesting to note here that not one of the one or two star reviews have a word to say. Could it be there are those deliberately trying to lower the over-all rating of this marvelous book??? I wouldn't be surprised. Well, discriminating readers can sniff out a phony  review at 40 paces. Stick with those that are truly heartfelt and genuine; you'll know which ones they are.

    Thoughtful

    This is a really excellent collection of poetry for any woman who enjoys poetry. The selections range from the bible to the classic romantic poets to current poets. They are all touching and really do cover most of a woman's life expreiences. I really enjoyed it.
