Mother. Warrior. Caregiver. Wife. Lover. Survivor. Trickster. Heroine. Leader. In this anthology, readers will find 21 stories and six essays about super-smart, purpose-driven, ultra-confident heroines. Hath No Fury defies the stereotypes. Here, it's not the hero who does all the action while the heroine smiles and bats her eyelashes; Hath No Fury's women are champions, not princesses in distress. Embracing the strong warriors to the silent but powerful, or perhaps the timid who muster their courage to face down a terrible evil, the women of Hath No Fury will make indelible marks upon you and leave you breathless for more.
