This book is not great literature. But is is three charming stories that introduced me to three non-profit organizations that I was unfamiliar with, in a fictionalized way.

Proceeds from this book goes to Women's causes.... It covers a variety of topics that are seldom, even in today's writings, mentioned... abused women from various forms of abuse. Even if you don't want to read it (I bought in because of Diana Palmer's story) to know that a percentage goes to More than Words program.
All the stories within this book were very inspiring, touching, and deeply emotional. I was touched again and again by the hope and miracles, the love and commitment shown by all.

These books are wonderful even if you don't like the stories inside. Each one is about real women.
Very inspiring stories based on real people
Only read the Diana Palmer story. It was okay.
