For about ten minutes I lived in North Dakota!
When I was a Baby my Father was in the Military and
his base was in Minot, North Dakota. Him, my Mother and
I all lived there, though I do not remember a lick of it.
Does that make me a Beautiful Woman of North Dakota?
Or are their Beautiful Women everywhere and North Dakota
was the only one smart enough to write about it? I am
going to go with that later of the two for after reading the
book I feel as if I have ran across Women like that over
and over again through my whole life and just never realized
it. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and its message and
was pleased to see an author, or couple of authors bring into
light the fact beauty is more then skin deep, it is a way of
are of all ages, races and creeds, and different background
and most assuredly are headed in different directions yet they
all have one thing in common. Heart! If it is for the passion,
bravery, skill or faith, they pick up where others have left off.
I love the fact none of them were looking to be found, they
never wanted to be noticed, they are just your everyday ladies
going on with their lives doing what they think is right. With
two daughters under the authors own wing, Chris Linnares and
Billy Black have the difficult task of bringing them up in today's
materialistic and vision orientated world and still teach them that
beauty is more then what you see at first glance. The message
comes across spectacular in the stunning Coffee Table book that
has Native Charm and timeless mantra. Women are more then they
seem and it is about time the rest of the world realized what us
ladies have known all along. The book is broken into mini stories
that highlights different peoples lives, loves and dreams and strengths
and each story is not only inspirational and touching it is just plain
motivating and captivating.
and is sure to stand the test of time. The Authors are each
respected in their own fields and as a Married couple, a Photographer,
a Psychotherapist and as humanitarians they complement the message of
their book as much as they must complement each other in
real life. Beautiful Women of North Dakota offers a rare glimpse at
what is underneath the surface and I admire their focus and
hope that I can some day teach Rowan the same message that
they are trying to teach the world. It is not often you run across
parents, professionals and people who are willing to go against
the grain and explore what honest real woman have to offer and
with poignant illustrations and heartwarming stories I recommend
giving this book the time it deserves. 70 pages in length, the
book also offers a section for you to jot down your own notes
and though I try to bring you guys humor as much as I can
I felt like with this review you deserved to understand the
importance of the message and I did not want to sour it
with a cute remark for I feel it is important we focus as
a society what message they are bringing to the table and
enlighten future generations to what is truly important. Maybe
if more people looked at the world though the eyes this
couple looked at a few select women of North Dakota we
would not have some of the social issues and standards
that are running rampant in our country today and I can only
hope our youth understand this message is one of value and
it doesn't get lost underneath a pretty cover!
