by Sister Michel Keenan, IHM

This volume continues the Scranton IHM story begun by Sister Immaculata Gillespie, IHM, in her book, The Sisters of the IHM, published in 1920.

Sister Michel Keenan arranges this book in chronological sections by administrations of the IHM Congregation leadership from 19191974. Each section has its own table of contents and references.

The unique struggles of women religious in the United States and the impact of Vatican II constitute a story of suffering, spiritual growth, and hope. The reader will marvel at the optimistic, pioneering character of these six IHM leaders and the foresight of their decisions.
