She is a book of qualities illustrating the greatness of women. From "everywoman" to exemplars such as Madame Secretarys Hillary Clinton and Madeline Albright to visionary artist Shiloh McCloud and {insert} poet Maya Stein, these many women represent the very best in the human spirit. Author/artists Mary Anne Radmacher and Liz Kalloch have gathered these fierce and feisty females along with their best advice for our life's journey on the topics of leadership, friendship, purpose, adventurousness, cooperation, collaboration, risk-taking, resourcefulness, happiness, compassion, and much more including what it is to inspire.

Each page spread features a collection of vintage art and ephemera elegantly designed by Liz Kalloch paired with a love letter by Mary Anne Radmacher to each quality along with a tribute to women's strength, character, and the extraordinary capabilities within each and every woman. She gathers the wisdom of many wise women including Madeleine L'Engle, Laura Schlessinger, Erica Jong, Rachel Carson, Oprah Winfrey, Harper Lee, Lucille Ball, Mother Teresa, Pearl Buck, Cheri Huber, Julia Child, Drew Barrymore, and many more.

This book is like a celebration of what it mean to be a woman. She is great gift of inspiration.  Full of beautiful illustrations this book She is a wonderful book full of wisdom for every woman. I really enjoyed this book. This book was a great pick me up.

This book was a collection of the attributes of woman, all organized by chapter. The chapters include inspiring illustrations with a poem and then quotes from famous women about the subject. Then there is a letter from the she that wrote this to the she that is reading it. It is really genius and simple. This won’t take too much to read, and you can glean a deeper appreciation from this book.

“Consider the possibility of soaring.”

This book includes letters of inspiration and quotes from women. I read it all the way through, but it can be picked through one section at a time. I think this book would make a great gift. As soon as I read it, I knew immediately who I wanted to buy this book for. I want to give it to my Mother, my sister, my friends… She is for every woman. It is such a gift to read it’s encouragement. She is a book I will treasure.

I made a booktube video for this book, because it seemed unfair to tell you about it. I wanted to show you.
