Murder. Mystery. Magic. Feminism. Kick Ass Women. Must Read.
And that’s my review! Alright, just kidding, I have more to say, but seriously this book is amazing.
The Change follows three women as they move into mid-life. Each has something special in them that is pulled out as their body begins to change. Nessa hears voices of the dead begging to be found. Harriett has a special connection with plants and nature that can be vicious and even deadly. Jo has an inner anger that manifests as immense heat and power. These three women work together to discover who is murdering young women in their town.
Can I just talk for a minute about how beautiful this book is?!?!?! Just from the cover, you get a sense of how amazing the artwork is on the inside. It is a feast for the eyes! I loved taking in each lovely page in Four Faces of Femininity.
What I Felt:
Feminism is a weird thing to me. I grew up in a family-owned hardware store, so I learned how to unload a truck, stock shelves, mix paint, and help any plumber or electrician that walked through the door. On the other hand, I learned nothing about being in a kitchen. I have, on multiple occasions, baked a frozen pizza with the cardboard still underneath it. I am also the sole-worker in our household, with my husband being a stay-at-home dad. So, I’ve never really felt stuck in a gender role.
