Product Description

Have you ever wondered about your ancestors" What their names were? Where they came from? Were they famous or rich? Were they outlaws or criminals? Come join us in an adventure that identifies and re-creates the lives of twenty-six women who lived during the Middle Ages.

Who knows? Since all of us are ultimately at least second cousins (many times removed), you may be related to one or more of these women. Were these characters well-known? What were their lives like during the medieval period? Were they ladies of the castle? Or were their daily lives much more mundane? Reading these fascinating tales of women who were far ahead of their time, you will know the answers to these questions and others soon enough!

About the Author

A psychologist and counselor by trade, the author is a retired college teacher who has spent over thirty years researching the ancestors of his maternal grandfather, William Henry Powers. Unlike traditional biographies and histories, which are written by, for, and about men, this book examines the exciting lives of twenty-six women who lived between the years 475 and 1468--a period known as the Middle Ages. This rather romantic time was filled with knights, ladies in waiting, castles, and unfortunately, disease and disappointment. Although he was born in the American South, Steven Powers Chylinski now lives in Hudson, Ohio, a quaint village that was settled by pioneers from Connecticut Western Reserve in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Besides writing, he spends at least a little time each day researching and probably, irritating the librarians at the wonderful, five-star Library in Hudson. The search for more colorful characters continues!
