Every day, women across North America reach out and change lives in their communities. Five have been selected as this year's recipients of Harlequin's More Than Words award -- and five New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling authors have generously given their creative energy, writing original short stories inspired by these real-life heroines.
Because of the commitment and determination of this year's award recipients, girls from New York's most deprived neighborhoods are dancing their way to self-esteem. A safe haven awaits women ravaged by life on the streets. Women who never had a chance are now dressing for success. Seniors are proving we're never too old to dream. And a mother honors her daughter's dying wish by helping other teens with cancer.
We hope More Than Words will touch your heart and inspire the real-life heroine in you.
