"The Lioness Tale, inspired by ancient storytelling traditions, addresses the problems of living under conditions that are hostile or indifferent to the inner life. How easy it is to identify with the Lioness of this tale! We know what it is to long for the intimacy of a caring voice, to be embraced by someone who believes that our happiness and our humanness are important. In this work of visionary fiction, there are lessons that will change your life. Just as the author has dared much in the telling, you must dare much in the reading. You'll share the grief of the Lioness' loss both of love and her own freedom. But the reward you'll share is renewed inner strength and a sense of vulnerability by which you will get back your own life and celebrate it."-Hal Zina Bennett, Ph.D, lecturer, consultant and author

Confession of the Lioness Excerpt :

A dark, poetic mystery about the women of the remote village of Kulumani and the lionesses that hunt them Told through two haunting, interwoven diaries, Mia Couto's Confession of the Lioness reveals the mysterious world of Kulumani, an isolated village in Mozambique whose traditions and beliefs are threatened when ghostlike lionesses begin hunting the women who live there. Mariamar, a woman whose sister was killed in a lioness attack, finds her life thrown into chaos when the outsider Archangel Bullseye, the marksman hired to kill the lionesses, arrives at the request of the village elders. Mariamar's father imprisons her in her home, where she relives painful memories of past abuse and hopes to be rescued by Archangel. Meanwhile, Archangel tracks the lionesses in the wilderness, but when he begins to suspect there is more to them than meets the eye, he starts to lose control of his hands. The hunt grows more dangerous, until it's no safer inside Kulumani than outside it. As the men of Kulumani feel increasingly threatened by the outsider, the forces of modernity upon their traditional culture, and the danger of their animal predators closing in, it becomes clear the lionesses might not be real lionesses at all but spirits conjured by the ancient witchcraft of the women themselves. Both a riveting mystery and a poignant examination of women's oppression, Confession of the Lioness explores the confrontation between the modern world and ancient traditions to produce an atmospheric, gripping novel.

When the Lioness Roars Excerpt :

This project was a personal journey of hope and expression of newfound love--for me. It is a celebration of life. It is an acknowledgement of God and His grace! The writings contained are original, bold, heartfelt, and honest. They shed tears, sprinkle anger, and smile with joy. They drizzle with unrequited love and sizzle with raw emotion. They open eyes to new sights and close hearts to past pains. Quotes from others in the public arena/eye support the fact that no one is immune to hurt or disappointment. Each offers inspiration and lessons in humanity and humility. Each looks to those things that navigate the soul along new paths to sanity, strength, and serenity. As the lioness roars, she defines her strength, passion, satiation, and contentment in herself and her pride. A woman is no different--even it she's in the fight of her life.

The Lioness in Winter Excerpt :

When she started working with the aged more than forty years ago, Ann Burack-Weiss began storing the knowledge and skills she thought would help when she got old herself. It was not until she hit her mid-seventies that she realized she had packed sneakers to climb Mount Everest, not anticipating the crevices and chasms that constitute the rocky terrain of old age. The professional gerontological and social work literature offered little help, so she turned to the late-life works of beloved women authors who had bravely climbed the mountain and sent back news from the summit. Maya Angelou, Colette, Simone de Beauvoir, Joan Didion, Marguerite Duras, M. F. K. Fisher, Doris Lessing, Mary Oliver, Adrienne Rich, May Sarton, and Florida Scott-Maxwell were among the many guides she turned to for inspiration. In The Lioness in Winter, Burack-Weiss blends an analysis of key writings from these and other famed women authors with her own wisdom to create an essential companion for older women and those who care for them. She fearlessly examines issues such as living with loss, finding comfort and joy in unexpected places, and facing disability and death. This book is filled with powerful passages from women who turned their experiences of aging into art, and Burack-Weiss ties their words to her own struggles and epiphanies, framing their collective observations with key insights from social work practice.
