These Shining Lives chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. Catherine and her friends are dying, it’s true; but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits—or endanger the lives of those who come after them. A historical fiction period drama delving into the lives and trial of the 1920’s Radium Girls who painted radium numbers onto clock faces, contracted radium poisoning, and fought for justice despite biting criticism.

After 30 years, there’s still no story that better celebrates the gift of friendship than Steel Magnolias!

Amid cuts, curls and free advice, these six glorious Southern belles share the joys and bear the sorrows of life together. With its mix of quick humor, quirky personalities and touching sentimentality, you’ll fall in love all over again with a story and characters that are “as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel.”
