 Flowers for Women
Copyright 2003-4
e book,193 pages
Compiled by Liana Metal

Reviewed by Kriss Erickson


Flowers for Women: An Anthology of true Stories for Women from Women is filled with personal stories of beauty, grace, triumph and joy.  Described within these pages are everyday moments that seem small at the time, but grow in meaning as the years pass. Life-changing events.  Once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.  Some stories are bittersweet, others tender, some are earthy.  All describe the simple graces that fill women's lives--moments that we often miss if we aren't paying attention.


Flowers for Women shows that the events that women care about in their lives become their garden.  The garden may contain art, as in Nedda Viconovich’s story, Shattering the Myth on page 68, best friends, as in Andrea Maccachern’s story, My Best Friends on page 101, or flowers, like Olivia Djouadi‘s essay, Lily and Snowdrop, on page 23.   The garden in J. M. Cornwell’s A Hero's Ride, on page 35 is her father's heroic stint as a rodeo rider before he joined the Air Force.
The book's compiler, Liana Metal, includes several essays of her own.  One of her essays, Her Wildest Dream on page 72, shows that we can attain any dream if we want it badly enough.  Her essay, We Can Always Be the Winners! On page 148 shows her realistic approach to life and her undefeatable spirit in the face of trauma.  Her Greek heritage gives the book an international flavor.


The book's elegant layout includes a full-color picture cover picture and well-placed inspirational quotes.  The book is broken into four sections: Family Ties, Following Dreams, Friendship and Special Moments.  Short biographies of each contributor are included beginning on page 181.


Liana Metal has been a writer, reviewer and editor for the past ten years, as well as an EFL teacher who teaches young children English.  Flowers for Women is her first anthology.  It is available as an e-book from http://www.ebookad.com, for $5.99.
