Wise Women

Several months ago, Bill saw a post about this book on JFM's blog (her current blog can be found here),  When he saw it, he knew I'd love it, so he found a copy, bought it, and surprised me with it when it arrived.
Wise Women: A Celebration of Their Insights, Courage, and Beauty
Bill was right--I do love this book. When he first gave it to me, I spent a long time with it, turning the pages, reading the thoughts of these women and looking at the portraits, which are beautifully done. Now, I pick it up from time to time and open it at random to enjoy another serving of wisdom. It's that kind of book--no matter how many times I pick it up and open it, there is a gift waiting inside. How glad I am about the string of events that resulted in a copy of this book ending up in my hands!

A man who surprises his wife with books is a real keeper! I'll check the book out.

How wonderful Shari! I am so happy that you have a very thoughtful husband. I definitely loved this book from the start. Wonderful stories and beautiful women of a certain age group.
I love everything about this book.
Thank you Bill for giving Shari this special book 📕📒📑☕
