Letters on the Go

Letters on the Go

The Correspondence of Suzanne Aubert

Out of Stock

Suzanne Aubert’s eventful 91-year life was also packed full of letter-writing – to friends, bishops and politicians. Jessie Munro, author of the acclaimed biography of the radical Catholic nun, has collected letters that reflect her rich friendships, her challenges to the church hierarchy and her engagement with members of parliament. From the pages emerges a portrait of the loving, committed and truly extraordinary woman who strode the streets of New Zealand on behalf of the poor and neglected.
