The Stories We Hold Secret -- Tales of Women's Spiritual Development is an anthology of thirty-one short fiction pieces written by and about women in America. These are not stories about extraterrestrial visits, enlightenment through gurus, or dramatic religious conversion; rather, these are stories of inner knowing, of our "holy dailiness," as Linda Hogan says in the preface. The stories are as varied as women's experience, from the quietness of a Native American woman cooking beans and cornbread in her kitchen to the tumult of a woman who for the first time becomes involved with a workers' strike.
