A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Here are stories of twenty-two remarkable women. Some of their stories are tales of bravery and cunning; other tales make use of traditional skills such as spinning, weaving, and sewing. Their stories are illustrated with lush portraits rendered in the style of tapestries, rich and decorative cloths of great beauty.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-This book is a pleasure to look at but the brevity of the selections will leave readers unsatisfied. Some of the retellings, limited to a half-page or less, merely paraphrase the Revised Standard Version of the Bible, which when taken out of context leave too many unanswered questions. What is Hannah thinking as she relinquishes her beloved only son and must be content with an annual visit? Sarah laughs to hear that she will conceive-but what of Hagar? Mary of Nazareth has her Annunciation (oddly specified to have occurred in June, though the traditional date is March 9th), but her role is diminished to this one event. The stories are arranged chronologically, so there's no sense of the importance of Rebekah, as compared to the Queen of Sheba (who has the last word in the Hebrew-here called the "Old" Testament section). The full-color tapestrylike oil paintings on every page depict some of the women as old or plain, an improvement over romanticized stereotypes, but little else will make readers feel connected to these heroines.
