    An extremely moving and inspiring collection of letters.

    This is such an unselfish and original idea. The subject of this volume of 100 letters, is only upstaged by its timeliness. There are many opinions and emotions out there involving the historic journey of our new First Lady. This book serves as a reminder to all of us, what this historic event means to the daughters of women on whose backs much of this country was built. This is a must read for all young women who think that life is tough for them. The inspiration in this book is a source of strength to new generations. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!
