Catherine Roberts is like a tall glass of water for a very thirsty generation of women. She’s as stunning now as ever - yet she seems to know something we couldn’t have known when we were young. She embodies it, and she celebrates it. She, and we, have more going on now than ever.
— Marianne Williamson
