The story behind the creation of Very Much a Woman’s Book is as interesting as its content. According to Peggy Warren, the author of the attractive hardbound, everything began when she was looking for a special gift for her friend. She told the bookstore clerk that she didn’t want something cute or pretty, but a meaningful shared expression of the travails of life. “The book you’re looking for is not on our shelves, but in here,” the clerk said with a smile while patting her heart.
Of course Peggy didn’t get a gift, but she did have a collection of scribbled writings that had, over the years, addressed exactly what she was looking for. She bundled some of them up, tied them with a red ribbon and gave them to her friend, who was deeply touched. “These poems are not just about you and me, Peggy. They’re for every woman. You must have them printed, and make sure the book is in hardcover because it has to be special.” Peggy did, and to make it more special, she chose rich paper and included her own line drawings of women, as well as one of her paintings on the front of the dustcover. She went on to sell over 20,000 copies and it became her first major success as an author.
The book has been such a success that many of her readers have created reviews for it. An interesting review written by Missy from Santa Fe, New Mexico read: “Thank you, thank you, thank you, Peggy. I just really think you’re wonderful to have been able to express feelings that are unique and yet so universal and so gut-level personal...” Moreover, another review is written by The Dallas Morning News that said “Her poems are pearls dropped into our day, inviting self-knowledge, meditation and peace.”
This year, Very Much a Woman’s Book is celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary of touching people’s hearts with creative drawings and emotion-evoking words. So, don’t forget to grab a copy of Warren’s work that is available at www.amazon.com , www.abebooks.com , www.peggywarren.com and other online book retailers.
