Big Bo Peep got tired of watching sheep.
There were other options that lay before her.

So she made a feast of all those sheep
and opened a shop to sell wool!

Fairy tales will never be the same! Best-selling author Linda Hollies retells classic fairy tales with a decidedly spiritual -- and autobiographical -- spin.

The result is a guidebook for women at the crossroads of their lives, to help them take a good hard look at what's really going on. In her inimitable, hands-on-her-hips, tell-it-like-it-is style, Hollies gives women bold new ways to seek renewal and rebirth -- offering a fresh biblical approach to the art of self-determination.

Jack and Jill went up the hill
to get their pails of water.
When Jack fell down and broke his crown,
Jill began to rule! She lived happily ever after!

Hollies takes an honest look at women's strength and confidence, financial well-being, relationships, hair and skin beauty, and more -- through the stories of biblical women and the stories of her own life. Each chapter ends with a practical "Can We Talk?" section to encourage further reflection.
