Be Your Own Heroine

Life lessons from literature


About The Book

Learn about life from heroines of every era.

Having brought you the wisdom of Austen in Be More Jane, eager reader Sophie Andrews turns her attention to what can be learned from heroines of other stories from past and present. Whatever your taste in authors, there will be strong female characters you can relate to, from Marian Halcombe, the tiger-sister in Wilkie Collins' The Woman in White to Eleanor Oliphant, the socially bemused heroine of Gail Honeyman's prize-winning first novel. And then there are the anti-heroines, the mean girls who can teach us how not to behave, or at least only when absolutely necessary: the scheming Amy Dunne in Gone Girl, or the wickedly amoral Becky Sharpe, from Vanity Fair. Whether you are faced with hard times at home, in love, or at work, these ladies have something to teach you.
