Smart, Sassy Heroines Pack A Literary Punch

Mary C. Curtis — a syndicated columnist at <em>The Charlotte (N.C.) Observer</em> — is known to her husband and son as "she who must be obeyed."
Mary C. Curtis — a syndicated columnist at The Charlotte (N.C.) Observer — is known to her husband and son as "she who must be obeyed."

"Three Books ..." is a series in which we invite writers to recommend three great reads on a single theme.

You may not like her, but you do what she wants. She's a tough chick, a woman with attitude and an instinct for survival. She's quick with a quip and totally in charge — of herself and those around her.
