Women in North Carolina have important stories to tell. In The Secret To Their Success: How 33 Women Made Their Dreams Come True, and The Long Way Around: How 34 Women Found the Lives They Love, editor Emily A. Colin provides the reader with intimate glimpses into the lives of North Carolina women. In candid interviews and essays, these women share their secrets, fears, dreams and advice in the hopes that the women who read them will find common threads -- and ultimately be inspired. From a twenty-five-year-old Peace Corps volunteer to the Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources, the diverse women in these volumes -- among them writers, artists, entrepreneurs, and athletes -- let down their hair, chat about their experiences and talk openly about the events that led them to their current paths.
