I wrote a book review of Mary C. Sullivan, RSM’s new book on Catherine McAuley a few weeks ago. I really enjoyed the book. Sullivan did a wonderful job with such a big subject. Anyone interested in learning more about the Sisters of Mercy foundress should look to this book.
Here’s the link to the review. While you are there, check out other book reviews and the entire History of Women Religious in Britain and Ireland website. They do a remarkable job over there promoting this history and making resources available to a growing community of scholars.
If you want to know more about the book, you can find out more at the publisher’s website.
