Our strong heroines

These novels have proven a much-needed "thing." The timing was right to delve into this genre, which I definitely enjoy.

The heroines are the resourceful, intelligent, kindly, capable, efficient types of women I grew up admiring and trying to emulate.

The stories are gender equitable and fair [towards men] as well. That's another plus.

After years of having my feminine self-ideal and identity eroded somewhat (as it turns out, more than I'd realized; due to a series of unpleasant circumstances), these novels and their worthy heroines are re-strengthening/replenishing my feminine self-ideal and identity.

If I may indulge a bit: Girl power!! :D
