In this illuminating work, McKenna discusses three topics that she believes are closely linked: memory, women, and resistance. She has chosen these ideas because each is found at the heart of a story in Mark’s Gospel: that of the unnamed woman who anoints Jesus with perfumed oil. This brief tale forms the center of this book’s reflections and commentaries as McKenna looks at stories of children and women and their traditions from around the world. “Who and what we remember,” she writes, “is a revelation of who and what we are and hope to be.” Combining memory with the stories associated with women is a potent idea because traditionally women are the ones who do much of the remembering, acting as family storytellers, while their own stories are often forgotten or neglected. Thus, many of the stories recounted here comprise acts of resistance and, by their very nature of remembering, acts of political courage. An important and thought-provoking book about women, both sung and unsung, from Iran to the American Southwest and beyond. --June Sawyers
