It could seem provocative or enigmatic to some, but the author of this book is not seeking to develop a thesis or launch a "new concept." She is not following a current, nor is she part of a counter current. Rather she believes that: "The hour is coming, in fact has come, when the vocation of woman is being achieved in all its fullness..." as Vatican II affirmed. In this work, a woman speaks to women simply, warmly, humbly. She passes on to the them that which she has shared with numerous others in private and during conferences: many women have thus been enlightened to live in a new and full way the specificity and beauty of their identity, their unique vocation, and to take their true places in their homes in the Church and in society. Mrs. Croissant invites them to bring to realization that which each of them is called to be: daughter of God, spouse of Christ, mother of men and of all humanity. This book is for all women no matter what their state in life, but it could as well help more than one man understand the mystery of the woman.

Excellent Insights for Women (AND Subsequently Men) Jan 12, 2009
I had heard about this book from a friend who had read it in Polish. She had heard about it from someone who read it in French (its original language). No matter what language you read it in or where you live, this book is uniquely insightful about women (AND subsequently men)...it truly resonates with women who have been formed in modern society, revealing deeply connected truths, realities and insights...insights that effect who we are and truths about fully embracing who and what we are called to be. This book shares individual testimonies which all women will relate to. I really can't recommend this book highly enough!
