    The Little Book of Spirit, Thoughts to Inspire, Comfort, and Motivate Women

    The Little Book of Spirit, Thoughts to Inspire, Comfort,and Motivate Women by Elaine Partnow is a compendium of inspiration and is enormously thought provoking! I don't believe I have ever seen a more beautiful cover jacket! This book makes a great little gift for just about any occasion. So far I have given it to my mother for Mother's Day, to a sick friend and to my hair stylist for her birthday. Of course, I also bought a copy for myself. It is a wonderful book to place on a night stand in a guest bedroom. I plan to keep several copies on hand for a last minute hostess gift or as Christmas gifts. Elaine Partnow is the author of The Quotable Woman, The First 5,000 Years, which is another wonderful book I have given as a gift to my women friends and to young women graduating from college. Partnow has made sure the thoughts of women are represented in history and we owe her our gratitude. I highly recommend The Little Book of Spirit.
