"Is there such a thing as a twenty-first century pioneer woman, or is it only a construct of a bygone era? If there are pioneer women today at the beginning of the twenty-first century, who are they? What do they look like and where do they live? Are they still sacrificing comfort and wealth in commitment to the Lord?"
In this collection of personal essays, author Neylan McBaine addresses twenty- and thirtysomething Mormon women as they face the challenges of life’s many transitions. Frontiers such as finishing school, starting work, moving to a new city, getting married, and having children provide opportunities for women today to show their commitment to the Lord just as pioneer foremothers did in earlier ages.
Drawing from her experience growing up Mormon in New York City and attending Yale University, Neylan extracts universal insights that help Mormon women today conquer twenty-first century frontiers.
