A Woman Is Dreaming
by Tashmyra Crowe
A story of women; a cosmos of women`s experience and connection across time and culture- their worlds, their histories, their conflicts and perils. The book is divided into 7 stories that intersect through dreams, images and timeless themes. The book as a whole tells a story, yet each story also tells a story. It is about love, death and grieving; and about courage, resilience and of healing.
