    1. Excellent collection of short biographies. An introduction to many women who shaped and changed Georgia history. I will be reading some more in depth biographies based on this introduction. Well researched with an excellent bibliography.

    2. Excellent read!! It kept my interest and definitely taught me about the great southern ladies as leaders of Georgia and how they made an impact and left behind legacies to be proud. I wish I could have met them.

    3. The women included in this book were quite interesting and varied. It was an enjoyable read, but gives only a small bit of information on each subject. It would be useful for a reader who wanted to select figures for further reading.

    4. This book was interesting but I would have like more detail. Not sure of what I think of the Author's writing. I tended to get lost in some of her thoughts and found it hard to keep up with her. I did however love the insights into these amazing women and it did fuel me to find out more about them.
