As I put together this anthology, three mantras resounded in my head: My sisters' words are my words. My sisters' words are my words, so I must do them justice. My sisters' words are my words, so I must choose the words that speak closest to my beliefs.
I share this mantra with you because I believe it is important to understand that I do not intend for this book to reflect a historical reading or academic inquiry of the history of the female, antifeminism, and/or suffragist culture. There are plenty of fine scholars who have already done the research, specified research, on individual poets and years and social constructs that circle back to the power of the female: I encourage you to do that reading. Rather, this is a book designed ...

Until suddenly, with the sighting of the man she holds responsible for her painful history, Etta begins to consider the possibility of a more satisfying future. She knows that with a good cooking fire and the steady heat of a patient man's love, a lot of things are possible -- even change, even happiness -- and to her way of thinking, all that stands in the way of a bright future is one wicked man, one necessary execution, and lessons ...
