Every book in "The Women's Hall of Fame Series" is a treat for readers--especially female readers--in the intended age group as well as for those who have left their tweens and teens behind them. Not only are the books pleasing to the eye, but they also have substance. CM Magazine
Readers will be fascinated by Wolfe's stories of courage, perseverance and dedication to the cause of education. One particularly interesting feature of this book is the "black box" explanation of various challenging concepts such as: arranged marriages, ADHD, and domestic violence. Wolfe has managed to take a fresh approach to the series, The Women's Hall of Fame, by examining the teaching profession through the unique stories of ten fascinating women.
