All Good Women from the Author: Valerie Miner. As World War II rages abroad, a group of women forge the bonds of sisterhood in America In 1938, while tensions in Europe are reaching a boiling point, four young women with big ambitions enter secretarial school in San Francisco. Motivated to attain the financial stability that eluded their parents, they go to battle for their futures. Moira, of Scottish descent, dreams of being an actress. Ann yearns for the education her Jewish immigrant parents provided for her brother, but not for her. Japanese American Wanda experiences firsthand the racial injustices running rampant in the United States. And Teddy, who left the Dust Bowl for sunny California, comes to startling realizations about herself as the war progresses. These women will be both buoyed and challenged by their dreams, experiencing love, loss, and everything in between. Against the backdrop of a nation gripped by fear and paranoia, Miner eloquently captures the spirit of wartime on the home front.

Is The Bible Good For Women from the Author: Wendy Alsup. Is it possible to embrace the inherent dignity of womanhood while still cherishing the Bible? Many people, both inside and outside the church, are concerned that an orthodox understanding of the Bible is threatening and even harmful to women. After all, the Bible has a number of passages regarding women that are deeply troubling and hard to read. But is that assessment accurate? In this fascinating look at God’s work of redemption from Creation to today, Wendy Alsup explores questions such as: * How does God view justice and equal rights for women? * What does it mean to be made in the image of God? * How have the centuries distorted our interpretation of how God views women? * How did Jesus approach the Old Testament and how does that help us read difficult passages today? * What is the difference between a modern view of feminism and the feminism that Scripture models? * How does the Bible explain the Bible to us? Using a Jesus-centered understanding to look at both God’s grand storyline and specific biblical passages, Alsup gives practical and accessible tools for understanding the noble ways God speaks to and about women in its pages and the dignity He places on His daughters.

A Few Good Women from the Author: Evelyn Monahan. In this riveting narrative history, women veterans from the world wars, Vietnam, the Gulf War, Afghanistan, and Iraq tell their extraordinary stories. Evelyn M. Monahan and Rosemary Neidel-Greenlee spent fifteen years combing through archives, journals, histories, and news reports, and gathering thousands of eyewitness accounts, letters, and interviews for this unprecedented chronicle of America’s “few good women.” Women today make up more than fifteen percent of the U.S. armed forces and serve alongside men in almost every capacity. Here are the stories of the battles these women fought to march beside their brothers, their tales of courage and fortitude, of indignities endured, of injustices overcome, of the blood they’ve shed and the comrades they’ve lost, and the challenges they still face in the twenty-first century. From the Trade Paperback edition.

999 Ways 2 Say No 2 A No Good Man from the Author: Mercedes Terzol. 999 Ways 2 Say No 2 A "No-Good Man" takes an uncensored look into the ways of the no-good man and exposes him for who he truly is: a dog disguised as a human. While promoting women to think with the head and not with the heart in matters of love, this book unveils what every woman may or may not want to know but needs to know about the canine, who may not currently be in her life, but may someday bring his paws to her doorstep. 999 Ways reveals the internal pollution that allows a woman to tolerate his ways, encouraging her to confront and transform this into strength. It reemphasizes the fact that the very structure of a woman is composed of strength. It is just a matter of finding its location then continuing on with application. From "Love 2 Be Defined" to the "Colorful Commentary" and "Excerpts of Encouragement," the usage of poetic expression will provoke thought and laughter to uplift the spirit. A.A.D. is the phrase that pays: Acknowledge, Act, Depart. So enter at your risk because only the brave souls will survive this literary experience.
