Everywhere we look, it is the 100 Most Beautiful that are honored and publicized. Inner beauty has taken a back seat to outward appearance. While physical attributes can rarely be altered or modified, inner beauty can be cultivated. Bestselling author Cynthia Heald has chosen seven qualities that make a woman beautiful. In order to make these attributes real and applicable, Cynthia has chosen key women from history, literature, the Bible, and our society to illustrate each quality. These women can be considered ordinary womenwomen with whom other women could readily identify with and who could be easily emulated. For it is her desire that the lives of these women will inspire anyone, no matter how young or old, to say, I want to develop these qualities in my lifeI want to be in the process of becoming a beautiful woman.
