The women whose writings are included in this anthology are all different colors in a kaleidoscope of history. Spanning nearly one thousand years in the history of spirituality, these works, arranged chronologically, begin with Hildegard of Bingen in the eleventh century and move to Ita Ford in our own. Their authors are mystics, contemplatives, actives, intellectuals, poets, and dreamers. They are portraits of women through the centuries who loved deeply their families, their communities, their careers, or their causes, but who, most of all, loved God.

Some women whose writings are included: Beatrice of Nazareth, Dorothy Day, Edith Stein, Mary Ward, Jessica Powers, Ita Ford, Hildegard of Bingen, Julian of Norwich, Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila, Simone Weil, and Elizabeth Anne Seton. The editor introduces each selection.

Reviews

. . . a valuable collection that anyone interested in women's spirituality will want to have.
Praying

. . . well-written and richly informative. There will be few readers who will not meet at least one of the women portrayed here who resonates with his or her own experience on the journey of life. A comprehensive bibliography is provided at the end of the book.
The Furrow

Zagano seems moved by the grace and efficacy of these women's lives and ideas, and in writing this book she stands at the entrance of their beauty's labyrinth, gently drawing her readers inside.
Christian Spirituality Bulletin

. . . an eye-opener . . .
