Reviews

“A series of letters written by women to the women who changed their lives, it is in itself likely to change the lives of the many women who are destined to read it.Our ability to love, learn and influence is the sum of our important and inspirational relationships. I will be buying it for my daughter and my mother. This is not a book to miss.”
