Reseña del editor:

A collection of seventeen stories with an introduction by editor Bernadette Rule. Most of these stories would come under the genre of historical fiction, as the writers were challenged to use the tools of fiction to bring these women back to life. The details of time and place are all authentic and based on research. Through this blend of fact and fiction each woman's "character," as the writer understands it, emerges from the shadows into brilliant clarity. Women profiled in the stories include: Anne Hathaway, wife of William Shakespeare; Helene Boulle Champlain, wife of Samuel de Champlain; Molly Brant, sister of Joseph Brant; Laura Secord; Georgina Hogarth, sister-in-law of Charles Dickens; Marguerite Monet Riel, wife of Louis Riel; Bridget Boland; Alice Seeley Harris; Constance Lloyd, wife of Oscar Wilde; Edith Bolling Wilson, wife of Woodrow Wilson; Annie Taylor; Syrie Wellcome Maugham, wife of Somerset Maugham; Pilar Casals, mother of Pablo Casals; Lillian Bounds Disney, wife of Walt Disney, Rani Lakshmibai, the Indian Queen who led the rebellion of 1857; Bertha Fried Hirning, a pioneer in the Spirit River area of northern Alberta and Joan Douglas, daughter of Tommy Douglas.
