it was amazing

Another of my all-time favorites. I read this book as a college student in a 'clothing' class (not just a sewing class, but so much more...), and was so immediately struck by how much it helped me to explain my own feelings about modesty in a world where that word has almost no meaning anymore. I really, really think this should be required reading for all teenage girls; unfortunately, there are probably many people in this world (including women--who must not really respect themselves for who they are)that think this book is very 'old-fashioned', very 'prudish', and 'smothering' to young people. I challenge all the women reading this review to read the book and realize that it makes perfect sense to respect your own self first if you want others to respect it also.
