About-

You yearn for beauty and goodness, love and mercy—rare qualities in today’s world. Still, they can be found if you know where to look.

Author Mary Riso explores the hearts of the heroines made famous in literary classics. Discover anew the unfounded love that blossoms in the orphan Jane Eyre; experience, with Betsey Trotwood, the courage to speak the truth in the face of evil in David Copperfield; thrill with Natasha of War and Peace, whose inner beauty transfixes those around her.

You will be inspired and challenged to take on the true feminine virtues of these great heroines—finding new faith, purpose, wisdom, and courage. Nurture your heart as you discover that a good story with real virtue can draw you to its ultimate source: the Creator of all good things.

Linda Anderson

“Informative and inspiring. The author’s quest throughout is for excellence—excellence in reading, in character, in Christian living.”
