I love this beautiful book. So nice to see how feminine and caring women were in the past--and unashamed of being women. A must read for young women, who have been led so far away from femininity in this country. (NOTICE: Attempts to censor (“Report this”) my comments will be fiercely fought under the aegis of American Libraries’ beloved principles: Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Read, Intellectual Freedom.)
