In Twilight for the Gods, Christina de La Rocha has risen from the impoverished slums of her small South American country to a position as personal confidant to the president. She has been working to change the political process in ways that benefit the poor and downtrodden in her country. Her crisis comes just when success seems to be within her grasp. She proves that ultimate courage is not the exclusive domain of men.
In Colonial Justice fifteen-year-old Abigail Wagstaff must defy her violent Calvinist father to save the life of the man she loves.
In Nowhere to Run, Lynn Pierce faces the kidnapping of one of her sons. How she turns the tables on the kidnappers is the stuff of legend.
In A High Plains Christmas, Sarah Fitzgerald Montgomery is a refugee from a defeated Confederacy. She was the daughter of a wealthy planter and she grew up in aristocratic circumstances. Her way of life turned to dust after the defeat of the South. In 1866 she and her war-wounded husband moved west to Kansas to start over in a new place away from the ravages of war. When her husband died from his wounds two months before their first child was born, Sarah was alone in snow-covered Kansas with a tiny baby to care for. But she was not a woman who would give up her dream.
If you like to read about women who are courageous, resourceful, spunky and optimistic, 4 Women is the book for you.
Christina chose to be an optimist and turned a potentially degrading situation into a life of respect, admiration and power. Abigail stood up to a tyrannical father and proved that true love can overcome obstacles. Lynn took command of a difficult situation. In spite of her fears, she never relinquished control and successfully botched the plans of kidnappers. Sarah affirmed that desperate means call for desperate measures. By keeping her wits about her, she altered her status from a lonely widow to having an entire town support her in her choice of a new husband.
All of Alston’s women share a common characteristic. Each woman could have allowed herself to wallow in self pity. Instead, all four women were fighters. Each used a combination of wit, ingenuity, determination, and gumption to affect positive changes in her life.
Pick up this book for the sheer pleasure of good reading. Revel in the stories of the women themselves. Complete the book with your self esteem reinforced by the lessons in self empowerment.
