"All the delightful features of the Bainton trademark appear: warm empathy with each person visited, the expert storyteller's verve shaped by the historian's zeal for accuracy, skillful interweaving of intimate personality sketches and panoramic historical analysis, evocative illustrations, lyrical sensitivity, and flashes of epigrammatic wit and the author's own personal chuckles."
The Christian Century
"The accounts are instructive and tantalizing.... [These women] are visionaries and mystics; poets, translators, and authors; queens and courtiers; expounders of the Reformers' doctrines and those like Teresa of Avila who themselves undertook reforms but maintained fealty to the rule of the Roman Church.... Only a few of the women are likely to be known to non-specialists, and Bainton tells the stories well."
