My Thoughts:

This Bible is a hardbound edition with a beautiful dustcover. The actual book cover is also imprinted with the same design. The devotions are written by several members from the Proverbs 31 ministries.

This is an NIV translation of the Bible. There are 366 short daily devotions that deal with various heart to heart issues that are close to a woman's heart. The devotions are numbered by day. At the bottom of each devotional you have additional scriptures that are related to the subject for further reading. The devotions have a note at the bottom of the page leading you to the next devotion. Also in the back of the Bible in the subject index you can look up the devotion by a specific topic, or author. You don't have to follow the devotion by day you can easily make it fit into your spiritual needs at any given time.
What I like about this Bible is that the devotions are written for women, by women, and the backgrounds of each woman are varied enough that you should be able to find one or two authors you can relate to. Each woman has a short bio about themselves in the back of the bible. Each woman also has a blog that if you are encouraged by a particular person you can follow their ministry by their blogs.
  
This is a nice Bible for all women and also would make a great gift for a mother, wife, or daughter.

 This book has been provided to me my by First WildCard free of charge and in no way was I asked to give a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
