Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0773478566, Hardcover)

This discussion, drawing on a wide range of archival material scattered across the British Isles, focuses on one of the earliest English manifestations of the educational enterprise of the Sisters of Mercy, in Hull. Maria McClelland's research demonstrates how, despite adverse circumstances, financial hardship and a spectacular and scandalous court case that hit the headlines in the late 1860s, the Sisters achieved their aims and met with eventual success. The story that unfolds presents, in microcosm, a picture of the challenges and opportunities facing Catholic religious women in Victorian and early-20th-century England.
