The Quiet Center contains original essays by award-winning, best-selling women writers that appeared in Victoria magazine during its first decade: Diane Ackerman, Madeleine LEngle, Jane Howard, Susan Minot, Whitney Otto, Francine Prose, Carol Shields, Jane Smiley, Phyllis Theroux, Judith Thurman, and others. Victorias three million-plus readers turn to these essays for ideas, inspiration, solace, and uplift. Like William Bennetts best-selling book Book of Virtues, The Quiet Center speaks to the core values and spirituality of millions of women who will find this book both an indispensable companion and a meaningful gift. Contents include reflections on timeless subjects: the relationship of sisters, the lessons learned from mothers and grandmothers, the rituals that are the rhythms of daily life, the eternal rites of childhood. There is a section here as well on beloved authors from the past, from Jane Austen to Willa Cather and Edith Wharton.
