A book about connecting with the written word, either with a short note or long, lovely letter. Don't we all want to see a real letter in the mail? When was the last time you saw one or sent one?

This small book packs a powerful punch. Euripides sure knew how to grab your imagination. The classic story of a wife betrayed by a husband that had vowed undying devotion, but later decided another princess was more to his liking.

My book has a different cover. I read this book cover to cover when I was 38. Now I'm 48 and need to move on. There are essays by 18 women, many whose names you will recognize (Frances Moore Lappe, Judy Chicago, Barbara Boxer, Gabrielle Roth, Mayumi Oda, Brooke Medicine Eagle, Cokie Roberts and many more).
