Item description for Beautiful Women: Celebrating Beauty in Stories and Stills by Nancy Bruno...
Today women are led to believe that beauty can only be achieved through the latest diet, exercise craze, miracle potion, or surgical procedure. In this era of physical perfection, it is sometimes hard to remember that beauty shines from within. It is the untold stories of lifelong experiences--the light, love, hardships, and successes that pour out of the body--that make a person beautiful.
Beautiful Women focuses on the life experiences of thirty-five women, of all ages, and what has truly made them beautiful in their present moment. They are the mothers, daughters, wives, and neighbors you see every day--at school and work, in the grocery store, in a doctor's office waiting room, or walking through a mall. Through their stories, women can realize that they are not alone in their insecurity and quest for self-acceptance. These women redefine the word "beauty" by showing us that what makes us beautiful is how we choose to face both the trivial and monumental moments in our lives.

A Lovely Book! Jan 23, 2008
In this work by Nancy Bruno, I found delicate tales of true life, and pictures of intense beauty. No, not the kind that is plastered all over the television, or printed in magazines, but the beauty that life brings; the hidden beauty that we all need to see, and appreciate. Inside the pages of this book, we are graced to read life experiences from 35-women. The strength, courage, accomplishments of each is the true beauty that shines. The black and white pictures add the visual that completes and satisfies the perfection of this beauty. A reminder of truth for all. Beautiful Women, celebrates the true essence of the pure beauty of women, and brings it forth for all to appreciate and enjoy. A lovely work.
Beautiful women, beautiful book! Dec 29, 2007
This book is remarkable and uplifting in seeing the beauty in "Average Janes" and telling their stories through both stories and photos. A wonderful gift for women of all ages.
