Their stories reveal the power of unsung women to change history.

Caroline: Little House, Revisited by Sarah Miller - Let yourself be whisked away to the beauty, hardship, and joys of the frontier in a dazzling work of historical fiction, a captivating story that illuminates one courageous, resilient, and loving pioneer woman as never before--Caroline Ingalls, "Ma" in Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved Little House books.

A Hope More Powerful than the Sea: The Journey of Doaa Al Zamel - Adrift in a frigid sea, only debris from the ship's wreckage and floating corpses in sight, 19-year-old Syrian refugee Doaa stays afloat, clutching two little girls―barely toddlers. For days as Doaa drifts, she prays for rescue and sings to the babies in her arms. She must not lose hope.
