Dear Woman of My Dreams
by Lois Kathryn Herr
Author, feminist, executive, and politician Lois Kathryn Herr has released the first book in a new series in which she gives voice to three generations of women and the struggles and successes that shaped them.
In Dear Woman of My Dreams, her mother Kathryn Nisley writes about her college life, her relationships with her mother and grandmother, and a train trip to visit relatives across the country. Kathryn writes to the woman she sees as herself in future years and ponders what life holds for her. At 100 she writes back.
The series is real-life fiction, creatively rendered and based on extensive family archive which includes letters, journals, pictures and other memorabilia.
