Blackmore has gone through all of her favourites; Jane Austen, Betty Smith, Harper Lee and more, selecting the story that spoke most to her and then compared it to the real life of the author, exploring how each heroine inherited a super-power.
I like this encouragement to read and re-read at different times of your life and seek the wisdom of those from before. It wasn’t an Earth shattering book; just sweet. A sort of “please consider for your next escape of real life”. Hey I may go and find a couple of the books mentioned. They sound interesting... though Gone With the Wind is really loooooooong, hmm.
To be read by the curious or the connoisseur.
