The title was a bit shocking, but then I discovered some wonderful stories. Wonderful not only because they were from real women with amazing lives, but also because they were very well written. Maria Morera Johnson was able to mix passages of her own life with the stories of those remarkable women, so the reader can really fell and understand her relationship with them. What I liked most were the questions at the end of each chapter: three simple questions that lead me to think about my own life, the main virtues of the women she chose and how that could correspond to women I know. Therefore, at the end, the stories were also my own stories, making this book a very good experience.
