It is with PLEASURE that I let you know that I have just finished reading Women of Valor. I found the History and Overview beyond helpful in my gaining further understanding of events of the time, and how they fit together. It set the perfect tone for me to meet and fall in love with Manya, Faye, Lola and Miriam. To my surprise, I found that I know a relative of one of these amazing women, which brought it all the more to life for me. You’ve given us an enormous gift….of allowing us to peer into the lives, hearts, and struggles of these real people, during an unimaginable time. On a personal level, I am so proud to know you…from our school days…and realize firsthand how special your life has been led…that you would give these women a more-than-proper forum on which to tell the world their valiant stories. GREAT job!
