Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Passion: any kind of feeling or emotion—hope, fear, joy, grief, anger, love, desire—when vehement, overwhelming or of compelling force."

In this followup to the award-winning A Woman's World, meet women from all stages of life—college students and grandmothers, old friends and new—adventurously wending their way around the globe. In women's travel, elements of the personal, the relationships pondered, and the connections made, often forge the way. They determine the trip's texture, shape its nuances. Again and again, women use travel to discover themselves, to create changes big and small, to contemplate life from new angles. And, always, women find inspiration from other women. Lighthearted or serious, sad or funny, or some combination of it all, each story in this collection will move you—perhaps even to the road itself.

Synopsis:

Spanning the emotional and physical globe and cutting a wide swathe of sensibilities, these stories conduce and cajole readers to hit the road, to discover what's out there in the world beyond them, and to ultimately discover themselves. The writers — including Frances Mayes, Anne Lamott, Pam Houston, Jo Ann Beard, Candace Dempsey, and Ann Jones — travel with such evocative attentiveness that the reader is brought along every vivid step of the way — to a peaceful Spanish church, a Laotian boat, a Tunisian desert, and to "a field of wildflowers . . . like colored marbles" in Umbria.
