Demonstrates the resilience and courage that women possess to pull through adverse situations and turn their lives around. The twelve contributors in this collection write their life accounts for the first time. They are Native women, immigrant and working-class women, wives, mothers and war refugees. Their stories speak of sexual and physical abuse, workplace harassment, alcoholism, eating disorders, emotional breakdowns, racism and poverty. With conviction and clarity, these women relate how they have recovered their health and well-being and are now able to make better choices for themselves, their families and their working careers. The extraordinary determination of these "ordinary" women inspires and informs. Their tangible, candid and concrete accounts offer a spectrum of experiences and strategies for building a healthier, more meaningful life.
