A collection of essays by women writers describing the meaning of "home". While each essay was in and of itself interesting, I would have enjoyed the book more if I had recognized the work of any of the authors. They may well be a stellar group of writers but it would have been helpful if the editor had included book titles and credited to each author.

This is a collection of stories in which several women writers explain what "home" means to them. I enjoyed how these authors looked back and shared some of their favorite childhood memories and it made me reflect on my own home in which I grew up in. An enjoyable read.
