Welcome to this week’s course at BookSparks University, Women’s Studies featuring WOMEN WITHIN by Anne Leigh Parrish


WOMEN WITHIN 

by Anne Leigh Parrish

Course Title: Women’s Studies

Department: Women’s Fiction

Description: With themes of reproductive rights and  feminism, this multi-generational novel presents three women whose paths cross at the Lindell Retirement Home. Constance Maynard, fierce, independent and proud, reflects on her long life promoting women’s rights through her career as a professor of history. Eunice Fitch, the perfect caregiver, is often unlucky in love, yet even in middle age refuses to give up searching for the perfect man. Sam Clark is a young aide with a passion for poetry and small beautiful things, but at war with her own large, ungainly physique. All together, they weave a tapestry as rich and complex as the female experience itself.
