"Becoming: What Makes a Woman brings to life those remarkable moments, large and small, that transform an individual, steering us toward the lives we were meant to lead. An astonishing array of gifted writers explore intimacy, doubt, love, joy, and sorrow to form this exhilarating anthology. A rich and wonderful read."
Dinty W. Moore, author of The Mindful Writer: Noble Truths of the Writing Life
"Beautifully conceived and organized, this collection unfolds much the way a woman's life reveals itself: slowly, gently, and sometimes painfully nudging our way into wisdom."
Brenda Miller, author of Season of the Body and Listening Against the Stone
