"Holding Her Head High" by Janine Turner

I want to thank Colonel Stan and Cecily Cass for putting me onto this book authored by the actress daughter of one of his military academy classmates.  Ms. Turner is herself a single mother and that prompted her to research and write about 12 women of the ancient and more recent past who have found themselves as a single parent – often in very discriminatory circumstances.  The book records how their faith in God led these women to endure, often under extreme conditions, and in many cases to change history.  The stories are extraordinary.

If you like history, you will enjoy this book.  And, obviously, it is particularly applicable to and would be an inspiration to any woman who finds herself as a single mother.
