Jennifer Read Hawthorne, beloved coauthor of the #1 New York Times best
seller Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul, and Barbara Warren Holden,
interviewed young women on their biggest life challenges. They then sought the
wisdom of experienced women to address these "new century" problems.
The result is this exquisite book, offering eclectic wisdom from older women
to their younger counterparts on a variety of life issues.
When women reach certain rites of passage-going to college, getting married
or having a baby-they become mindful of their mother's advice and come
to appreciate the life experiences of more mature women. In fact, when interviewed
by the authors, young women specifically expressed a desire for older mentors,
so Hawthorne and Holden answered them through the words of society's most successful
and wise women-mothers, doctors, writers, activists, therapists-and
included inspiring advice from celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Hilary Clinton,
Janis Joplin and Barbara Walters.
Some chapter topics include: Living in Your Body, Transforming Your Emotions
& Trusting Your Feelings, Awakening Your Creativity, Discovering Your Destiny,
Finding Your Tribe and Accessing Authentic Female Power.
