This gentle, yet powerful, book is an outstanding resource for Catholic women. The book opens with this greeting: “Dear Sister.” Reading this book is exactly like having an intimate conversation with a sister, mother, or best friend. Elizabeth M. Kelly writes from the heart, and her message is sure to touch any woman who is seeking a greater understanding of herself, her spirituality, and the women of the Bible.

Kelly devotes a chapter to each of eight women, including Mary Magdalene, Veronica, Martha, Mary, and even some unnamed women of the New Testament. She seamlessly intertwines their stories with poignant moments from her own life that perfectly illustrate what she’s trying to convey to her readers. Everything about this book is fantastic. It’s like a personal retreat. Her tone and language create a great sense of calm and reverence appropriate to the subject matter. Like chatting with a sister, it sometimes becomes emotional, prompting tears. It’s a powerful and refreshing spiritual journey for women by a woman. Deeply insightful, this is a very rich book to be returned to again and again through the various ages and stages of life. This book is a true treasure.
