Critique: Impressively written, deftly organized and presented, “One Hundred Hearts: Inspiring Stories from the Women who Lived Them” is a thoroughly absorbing read from beginning to end—and one that is both inspired and inspiring. Very highly recommended for both community and academic library Women’s Studies collections, it should be noted that “One Hundred Hearts” is also available in a Kindle edition ($4.99).
