Editorial Reviews

In this authorized biography of St. Mary of the Cross, Lesley O’Brien weaves a compelling and revelatory tapestry of the first recognized Catholic saint of Australia, who wasn’t without flaws but was passionately resolute in her egalitarian, self-sacrificial convictions and unafraid to stand up to the perceived hypocrisy of Catholic establishment of the time.
From her humble roots as a teenager working as a store clerk in Melbourne to her controversial excommunication from the Church, Jenny Seedsman’s vibrant performance enlivens this refreshingly humanistic and candid portrait of Australia’s only recognized Catholic saint.

What an amazing woman

Like most people I knew Mary MacKillop was a saint and had been a nun who started an order to help under privileged children, however this book revealed a woman way ahead of her time and her fight against a male dominated feild was nothing short of amazing. This book is well worth a read to understand the challenges and opposition Mary had to wok through. She is definitely one of Australia's remarkable people.
