"Most women I know are priestesses and healers, although many don't know it and some never will. We are all of us sisters of a mysterious order," writes Marianne Williamson in this part-confessional and part-inspirational tome.

The author talks about relationships, careers, dreams, and children. She challenges women to see themselves in spiritual terms. Beauty is inner radiance, aging is an adventure, and the vocation of mothering is a holy calling. Williamson's vision of what it means to be a woman shines.
