I chose 5 stars because I quite simply loved reading it!
I read it from cover to cover in one very long sitting...and didn't feel like i wanted to put it down. I thought the book was written in a very friendly conversational manner that a youngster must appreciate.... but not at all condescending. Rachael Hertogs use of language is welcoming and informative. I only wish I had read it sooner.... or that my Mum had read it when I was coming of age.
The book contains practical advice and real life stories from not just Rachael but from the many grand mothers, mothers, daughters, aunties, sisters etc that she interviewed.
I have much gratitude for Rachael and her work. This is definitely a must read for any female..... or actually.... any male who'd like to understand more the female cycle.
I read this book in a day - taking notes and making plans for some way to celebrate with my daughter - and for myself. Highly recommend - beautiful shares moving the reader through the book, inspiring connections and recognition of the way our parents handled the onset of menarche and the damage we have struggled with to reconnect to our power. thank you Rachael
