Happy Women in Fiction Day!

Published April 10, 2015 by Ashley Townsend

Oh. My. Gosh. SARAH MADE THE LIST! Lydia wasn’t kidding; Sarah Matthews–MY relatable, time traveling, awkward teen with a penchant for getting herself into trouble–is actually on a list of her favorite fiction women. I can now die in peace! ….. But I can’t, because now I want to write and finish Sarah’s story!

Lydia Thomas, Author

Since it’s Women in Fiction Day, I thought I’d take a post to discuss some of my favorite literary heroines.

The Classics

I mean, who doesn’t love a girl with this much imagination and flare for the dramatic?

“Why must people kneel down to pray? If I really wanted to pray I’ll tell you what I’d do. I’d go out into a great big field all alone or in the deep, deep woods and I’d look up into the sky—up—up—up—into that lovely blue sky that looks as if there was no end to its blueness. And then I’d just feel a prayer.” ~Lucy Maud Montgomery,  Anne of Green Gables


She’s the ultimate warrior princess.

“And then her heart changed, or at least she understood it; and the winter passed, and the sun shone upon her.”  ~J. R. R.   Tolkien, The Return of the King
