This is usually the type of book that I'd read a page or two at a time, but the dear friend who gave me this book is waiting to read it, so I read it cover to cover.
Like any anthology, there are stronger pieces than others, but I enjoyed the wide variety of women included (Katherine Parr, Anne Askew, St. Edith Stein, Simone Weil, St. Julian of Norwich, for example) and the way the quotes were arranged by topic was really wonderful.
One that I know I will return to and read a page or two at a time

A good read in that the spiritual writings span centuries of time. However, a challenge to follow at times because of the nature of the writings themselves. Enjoyed it just the same.

She didn't explain in enough detail who each of the women were, or why they were chosen to be included.
