  • This fantastic volume contains excerpts of letters from women, organized by theme. As we're told in the introduction, letters should be considered a valid form of literature, and the snippets included support that suggestion. The range of women included is very Western-oriented (my only complaint) but otherwise, this is an enjoyable book to dip into. I'm inspired to try writing my own letters to friends!


  • A dip into book rather than a continuous read. The variety shows the range of women's lives across a 1000+ years. As with all these sorts of books depending on your own interests different sections will grab you and others can be skipped over.



  • In a few words: a collection of letters written by women with lots of expectations set regarding their scope, but a lot of severe limitations (editing, and/or marketing issues?)What: Kindle library loanWhy: just randomly picked it out, browsing the electronic catalogs of the library, and I really have been meaning to get into a good letter collection or anthology, but this was not it.The huge, glaring: western, whiteness at the center of the way this collection has presented "800 years of women' [...]


  • I appreciate the message the author/collector of these letters was trying to send, and she certainly succeeded in doing so. However, I didn’t gain much more than that message. I think the book could have been edited differently to give even more insights into women’s lives.


  • I would actually give this three and a half stars if that were an option.A wonderful compilation of women's letters grouped into various categories, though very much focused on western Europe and North America. It was great to read through, but I can see why it was remaindered.The organization, editing, and short commentary on the letters really needs some improvement. Sometimes Kenyon made it sound like a letter would include certain things when it didn't, and sometimes her short blurbs before [...]


  • This is a wonderful book. Arranged according to subject areas (such as Friendship, Marriage and Childbirth, Travellers and Travelling, and Political Skills) it contains a fascinating and insightful guide to the lives of women from the thirteenth century to the present day. It covers a wide variety of lifestyles from the rich and famous to the nun and factory worker, and relationships, with women writing to family members, lovers, husbands, friends and notable figures in society. Most of the lett [...]


  • My version was called Women's Voices.This was a really fascinating book, if the older letters were a bit hard to follow. It was far far more interesting than a normal history text book and I'd recommend anyone to try this book or similar ones.Handwritten letters beat email any day especially when they come through your letterbox instead of a bill!penpals-unitedThis was bought from a book club years ago then donated to South Shields BHF shop.


  • This was a great anthology of 800 years of women's letters. Sometimes a little repetitive. Strangely divided into topics instead of chronilogically but that was interesting in itself. Not very many american women's letters. Mostly women from the WESTERN philosophies though the most modern letters are from a Buddhist nun writing and traveling in the 1990s.



  • cheapo bargain book I picked up. Love it. Again, like the Century of Letters, this is a wonderful historical account of life and interesting look at writing styles during a time period.



  • Very wide assortment of letters from women in many eras. Interesting to read that many of women's concerns and interests are still the same even in the digital age.
