Reading the second edition of this little book was enlightening, entertaining, and offered several surprises in the choices of women featured. Well written, it offered intimate details of women who worked diligently and passionately to change Maine for the better in ways large and small, publicly and privately. Most delightful surprise of all was discovering the lifestyle of Marguerite Thompson Zorach and insight into her personal life to include raising her daughter, Dahlov Ipcar!

Not only do I adore Kate Kennedy, I loved learning about these remarkable Maine women! Kate's straightforward and personable writing style allowed the women she wrote about to come back to life. I can't wait to share this book with my most-loved Mainers!
