From Self-Help to Biography, let’s enjoy the following books about women making a mark in the world.
On the Road to Casa Lotus
This moving true story of passionate art collector, devoted wife and mother, Lorena Junco Margain, delivers a message that it is far better to walk in forgiveness than hold a grudge.
Her story begins as she is fleeing Mexico due to concerns for their safety with her family while she was pregnant. During this time, she discovers she has a tumor on her adrenal gland. Having long experienced unexplained symptoms of dizziness and lethargy that neither medication nor holistic or Ayurvedic treatments have helped, she embraces the news with tears of relief: with a simple surgery, she can regain her strength and joyful spirit. Fully expecting to regain her life and function after the surgery, she was dismayed as she became worse. The surgeon had made a gross mistake. Lorena is mindful that vengeance would not heal her, so she chooses instead to forgive. Deeply compassionate, wise, and poetic, On the Way to Casa Lotus lays bare some of the most poignant contradictions of the human condition, blurring the distinctions between guilt and neglectfulness, anger and sorrow, humility and shame, gratitude and despair.
Rich with imagery and metaphors from the world of contemporary art, and brimming with scenes from the author’s close-knit, abundantly loving Mexican family, the book plants a seed of hope that loss and pain can serve a higher purpose: one of promoting forgiveness as a force for personal and universal change.
Catherine Schuyler: A Woman of the Revolution
“I am no stranger to the qualities which distinguish your character.” – Alexander Hamilton in a letter to Catherine Schuyler
Catherine Schuyler was wedded to Philip Schuyler who was known as the General of the North during the revolution. She played a critical role in the days of the war for America’s liberty. Catherine Schuyler: A Woman of the Revolution details the life and times of this larger-than-life woman.
Born in 1734, Catherine Schuyler grew up to become the grande dame of Albany. As her husband went off to fight for freedom—and their lives—it fell to Catherine to manage the household, raise the children, and protect them from the attacks of both the Indians and British.
Catherine Schuyler was at the epicenter of the social life of Albany, entertaining such distinguished guests such as George Washington, Ben Franklin, and British General Burgoyne. She was the mother of 15 children, eight of whom survived including Elizabeth Schuyler, who married Alexander Hamilton.
In Catherine Schuyler: A Woman of the Revolution, author Mary Humphreys, a journalist and women’s rights activist, provides a compelling and well-rounded look at Catherine’s rich and fascinating life.
