A collection of poetry and prose, quotations and quips, humour, wisdom and spiritual insight for women of all ages. Wide ranging in its focus and contemporary in its concerns, it touches on: the ages and stages of a woman's life: childhood and youth, love, marriage, motherhood, family, work, maturity, a woman's loves: home and hospitality, friendship, creativity, creation, laughter, a woman's longings: spiritual growth, equality, justice, journey and pilgrimage, vocation, and fulfilment. It celebrates all the things that enrich women's lives, and at the same time gives voice to their articulate and passionate dreams for a fairer world.

'We all have our own journeys through life, and we can each take a different journey through this book, by dipping in and out of it and staying with whatever appeals to us. It is like a treasure chest, but instead of old photographs to trigger our memories, there are literary references to spark our imaginations. This is a book full of treasures, both new and old.'
