The Norwegian publisher was thrilled about the book:
“I think this is exactly what we need; an author like Mia Kankimäki who travels and explores and writes about brave and inspiring women in history. About women we can consult when we lack belief in ourselves and when we need guidance, when we don’t know whom to ask, when we find that our own parents, sisters or best friends cannot inspire us to raise our head and look further. Beautifully written and clever.”
– Gunhild Gursli-Berg, Owner/Publisher, Gursli Berg, Norway
