Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2007 - 309 páginas
A timeless collection of memoirs, culled from the pages of Victoria magazine, by some of the finest women writers around. Such distinguished authors as Diane Ackerman, Jane Howard, Perri Klass, Madeleine L’Engle, Susan Minot, Francine Prose, Carol Shields, and Jane Smiley have contributed to these pages—and their emotionally rich, lovingly crafted essays embrace all phases of a woman’s life, as well as literature and the process of writing itself. The topics so insightfully and often poignantly explored include childhood, motherhood, solitude, rituals, home, sisters, and remembering the past. From Phyllis Theroux’s memories of her convent education to Susan Schneider’s thoughts on living in “A Gently Haunted House,” each piece will touch your heart, mind, and soul.
