Each woman is special and unique, but we share a common connection. What bonds all women are mutual experiences of loving and learning; feeling the tenderness of love; forging lifelong friendships; pursuing a chosen career; giving birth to new life; juggling the responsibilities of job and family.

WOW! Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul, not only opened my heart and rekindle my spirit, but it gived me a new purpose and sense of being and belonging. Women everywhere should read these stories and open their hearts to new beginnings. You won't want to put this book down once you have started to read and will want to ensure that every female in your life share in the stories with you. I know I did! ( )

This book has good, inspiring stories of women who have done it all, from childhood memories to growing old and wiser. A couple of the stories had me tearing up.

I have a few favorites that stick out. One called "The Wind Beneath Her Wings" is a story about Jean Harper, one of the first three female pilots for United Airlines. The woman's dream was always to be a pilot, and first everyone told her she couldn't, or she didn't have chance. She Almost believed that, until one teacher told her to live the dream. Another one was "Mother's Day," about a woman who was in her 30's and thought she would never have children, but in her 40's did. It makes me feel a little hopeful about myself. All the stories definitely spark emotion in a person; I can't see how they could not. ( )
