This is a historical collection of biographies that for the first time, survey the story of various Catholic women of Maine. In a narrative that covers the women who shaped history from the colonial era down to the present day, the author focuses on those who were influential among the Native Americans and including those of French, Irish, and Italian origin who helped shape business, education, health care, and even religion itself. Of particular relevance were the Sisters of Mercy who did so much to develop hospitals, orphanages, and schools in the Pine Tree State.
