Josee Simbabawe, a Tutsi from Burundi, is passionate about helping others from her country, as she was helped during her own journey that included prejudice, persecution and a three-day ordeal in a prison in Kenya. Read more about Josee and other women profiled in Beautiful Women - Like You and Me.

Images of beautiful women are everywhere: on billboards, on television, in the movies and in magazines.

Are these images real? Perhaps.

Are they the norm? Definitely not.

Writer Patty Mayeux and photographer Linda Lapointe have teamed up to create this book of stunning photographs and inspiring stories of women, like you and me. At first glance, they do not appear to be beautiful by today's standards. It is through learning of their struggles, strengths, joys, triumphs and dreams that their true beauty, their inner beauty is revealed.

Look inside Beautiful Women - Like You and Me. You will find examples of women not unlike your mother, your sister, your aunt or your neighbor. You will be encouraged by their stories. Best of all, you may recognize your own brand of inner beauty. We hope you will know the value of that reality revealed, a reality revered.
