A surprisingly good alternative to the more-famous Chicken Soup for the Soul series. In fact, I felt the stories here had more depth and warmth, though they were not as diverse in terms of theme. For instance, practically every story had women who have made conventional choices in life and many of them revolved around family and friendships with other women.

Nevertheless, a cosy weekend read.

This is a good book to read. It has it times for a cry rag and times for a laugh. There are things to learn from several of the stories. I would whoe heartedly suggest that women everywhere should read this or a similiar book. This reminds me of the Guidepost devotionals and the Chicken Soup for the Soul books.... Enjoy.

A book of short essays to stir your thoughts and emotions. I enjoyed very much and will be sipping another cup soon. Some of the writers were very creative. "Well Furnished with Love" by Julia Rosien was such a wonderful example of creative writing. "The Rising of the Sun" by Camille Moffat painted a beautiful picture of a young girls interpretatin of the sunrise.

Given to me by my BFF to help pass the hours spent in chemo treatment. Lots of Post-its haninging out top and bottom to mark much loved stories and passages.
