About this title


Unusual book


"McGuinness culls wide-ranging historical evidence, examines European roots, and brings contribution to greater light and perspective with her collective story of many communities across the United States, beginning with the Ursuline sisters in New Orleans in 1727This is a comprehensive, objective, and readable contribution to a subject of growing interest despite fewer numbers of sisters." --Library Journal

"McGuinness writes with the authority of a scholar and the ease of a storyteller. Her portrait of the women who have for so long represented the face of the American Catholic church will be useful to readers who wish to learn about the often hidden and far-ranging contributions vowed women have made to church and nation. --Kathleen Sprows Cummings, University of Notre Dame

"For generations of American Catholics, the face of their church was, quite literally, a womans face. McGuinness recovers the compelling story of these sisters and puts them back at the center of American Catholic history. --James M. OToole, Boston College
