I've really enjoyed this author's novels, so even though I am not a writer, I thought I'd give this nonfiction book a chance - and I'm glad I did! These short essays cover a lot of ground and will move and inspire many women. Gabriel shares inspiration and perseverance from many different authors I have enjoyed - Kathryn Stockett, Barbara Kingsolver, Toni Morrison, and many more. Her reflections on these are encouraging - and sometimes challenging - all in a good way. I also love the juicy quotes and the lists. I think this is a wonderful book for all women (and men!), whether they write, want to write or are just big readers - who are interested in a life of soul and purpose.
