SYNOPSIS:Are you looking for the perfect heroine? One who will stand up to the hero? One who has the guts to stand up to the villain? Are you having difficulty creating just the right character, thinking she may be just a bit over the edge? Well here's your answer to that independent, outrageous spirit you need. This book is a collection of stories about 150 Victorian women who refused to conform to society's norms and did things their own way. Meet Ida Lewis who plucked drowning sailors from the Atlantic. And Jane Addams who began the social experiment we know as Hull House for impoverished immigrants and the bored wealthy. These are the women we want to emulate in our books. You just might come up with an idea while glancing through this volume.
