Review by Margaret Madden

This is a really interesting account of the life of an Irish Priest on the other side of the world. The original letters are fascinating, the details in them are like gold dust.

I found the section on New Zealand absolutely fascinating. The author really captured the environment in which Michael lived and the tough life he had to endure as a country priest, really tough on someone who seems to have been a high achiever.

The controversy between Marists and Secular Priests was so well portrayed from Michael’s view, that it aroused rage at the injustice.

I really enjoyed the book and finding out about a period and a life that was not previously well known to me.
