Compelling, candid and insightful, “Dear Woman of My Dreams” is a true to life story that explores family bonds, sacrifice and what it means to be a strong, independent woman in a rapidly shifting world.

Author, feminist, academic and politician Lois Kathryn Herr has released a new book in which she gives voice to three generations of women and the struggles and successes that shaped them. An eye-opening portrait of the journey of the modern woman, “Dear Woman of My Dreams” (published by Xlibris) is real-life fiction, creatively rendered and based on extensive family archive which includes letters, journals, pictures and other memorabilia.

“Dear Woman of My Dreams” is the first in a series of stories that chart the experiences of the women in Herr’s family. The book follows the author’s mother, Kathryn, and her experiences as a young woman in 1923. This coming-of-age story is told in her own words as she goes about her daily life at college with her friends and with her mother and grandmother at home as well as on a cross-country train trip. She writes to the woman that she sees as herself in later years, and the book closes with a brief chapter based on letters and the diary Kathryn wrote when she was 100 years old.

Compelling, candid and insightful, “Dear Woman of My Dreams” is a true to life story that explores family bonds, sacrifice and what it means to be a strong, independent woman in a rapidly shifting world.
