Claiming the spirit within: a sourcebook of women's poetry
Edited by best-selling author Marilyn Sewell, this rich and diverse anthology of more than 300 poems celebrates the sacredness of women's lives: the experiences that shape them, the relationships that sustain them, and the legacy that they build.

As Sewell explains, "Those who write these verses do so out of exquisite courage...... They show us how to live."
