In The Secret Legacy of Biblical Women, author’s intention is the focus on Matriarchs of the Bible, revealing the story each one into a broader view using the Midrash, Rabbinic commentaries and still Kabbalistic insights. The holy stories mentioned are from: Eve, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, Leah, Bilha, Zilpa, Dina, Miriam, Batya, Chana and Esther. 

One will be learning practices that have a strong emunah and devekut to God, but also works as "almost" a book of self-help, self-improvement that everyone can use it in a practical way in their daily lives, for fearing God and those looking for well-being, peace, answers about life can apply those lessons today. There is a section called "Invocation" with advices. Melinda Ribner developed imaginary interview format, so each Biblical woman becomes alive to the reader in our times, the questions are to the point, relating the biblical passages of experiential spiritual they lived

A large number of Rabbis established have made a very good opinion about this book, some names worthy of mention: Rabbi Shefa Gold, Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, Reb Rahmiel Havyim Drizin, Rabbi Avraham Greenbaum, Rabbi Aaron Raskin.

This book could be redemptive to all women and the men can gain an understanding to learn with Biblical women the important relationship of us with the Divine Feminine.
