I was so pleasantly surprised by this collection; it is really stunning. A whole range of heroines, big, small, angry, vengeful, funny, something for every aspect of our personalities.

E-ARC received by author for honest review Life inherently includes challenges and struggles. When one is in the midst of struggle it is easy to feel alone in the world. Truth is, there is probably at least one other person who has been in a similar place. This book is a collection of struggles...and the women who triumphed over them. I'd love to rave about my favorite short stories in the collection, but I don't want to give spoilers What I can tell you is while, as women, we are all unique, we are kindred spirits in the struggles of day-to-day life and those that seem extraordinarily challenging. This collection is a reminder that we need to be rocks for each other, foundations of safety, stepping stones to a better tomorrow. Why do we try to do it alone? While I read this book in one sitting, it would be perfect for short bursts of reading time. So, whether you have hours to devote to these stories or a few minutes here and there, give it a read. You won't regret it!

Seldom do I read an anthology where I don't have a favorite story. In this case, all nineteen of the tales are excellent and beautifully-crafted. These are not just stories for the resistance, these are stories about heroism and prevailing against all odds. I strongly recommend it for girls thirteen and up needing role models and encouragement.

This anthology brings together 19 tales of women who despite all odds, have faced their greatest fears and opposition and continued to pursue their path forward, changing the course of their life. I was most familiar with stories from two of the authors, Mindy Klasky and Doranna Durgin, but I found myself a fan of several others. The stories ranged from the past with the ultimate tale of marital fidelity in Greek mythology, to stories in the far distant future. Each story shows the heart of a woman as she searches for her own truth and what needs to be done to obtain it. Sometimes the path leads through sorrow and tragedy and sometimes to a realization of true happiness. But always, "nevertheless she persisted." Disclosure: I am voluntarily reviewing an advance reading copy of this book.
