Examines the ways religious beliefs and institutions have shaped the lives of women in Australia over 200 years. It looks at Catholic nuns, Protestant missionaries, deaconesses and laywomen.

My mother was Ruth Minton Talyor who married Bill Wynn Jones cited in this book. Narelle Bullard wa a great friend of the family, and we loved her dearly - and for this reason she came to tend our grandfather when he was ill and living in Potts Point, NSW. With due respect, any suggestions of romance between our father ane Narelle are quite new to us, and quite unsubstantiated.
